    hi all i am nearly on my 10k limit on my BA PP card i dont want to trigger another companion ticket
    i have a barclaycard avios doing nothing should i put the spend for the cruise on that? or is there anything better around?
    also i will be spending my avios for companion + £900 is there any additional points if i put this on my BA PP?

    should i consider another card and stop my amex in feb when the anniversary hits to give me a chance to build up more avios?

    Many thanks

    BA spend yields more avios per £ spent on Amex then normal spend on Avios. Can’t recall the exact figures.

    You’ll get 3 avios per £ on BA bookings using the BAPP.

    Great I believe the taxes will be £900 hope that’s included?
    I won’t be able to use the Amex for the cruise as it will take me over and trigger another companion

    Yes, getting double avios is the silver lining to paying BA’s surcharges!
