British Airways has launched a promotion in which it's offering its Executive Club members the opportunity to earn double Avios on up to six flights between now and the end of the year.
There's a new British Airways Avios sale out today and in it the airline is offering a 50% bonus for purchases made by 24 February 2019. As well as offering a similar bonus to the one we saw in December BA has also kept in place the increased 200,000 annual limit for Avios purchases that was introduced last year.
During the week of 21 January BA was offering £200 roundtrip long-haul fares to select destinations (2 destinations per day for 4 days), on 1 February the airline revealed its latest promotional video (in the form of a love letter to Britain) and now, for a limited time, British Airways is offering £100 off select long-haul fares for 5,000 Avios.
Once upon a time (in a galaxy far far away) I was a big fan of mileage runs, status runs and any other kind of run that would improve my trips. Nowadays I'm a little happier flying to destinations I want to visit or on aircraft I'd like to try out and my days of flying around just to earn status or miles are behind me. That's why it's a little surprising that an earlier blog post of mine gave me an idea.
If you're a US based member of the British Airways Executive Club you may have received an email encouraging you to buy Avios with a 50% bonus "this week only" - please ignore the email and please, whatever you do, do not buy Avios in this sale.
Qatar Airways has today announced another new European route which it plans to start operating from Summer 2019 and it could mean a very nice haul of Tier Points if you're starting your travels in the UK. Ordinarily, an announcement of a new Qatar Airways route is just good news - it's another route on which to earn and burn AAdvantage Miles or Avios - but the route announced today could signify a great opportunity for UK flyers looking to earn a lot of tier points in a single trip.
Late last year I wrote a post in which I concluded that simple mathematics suggested that I shouldn't credit my 2018 flights to the American Airlines AAdvantage program. Now, almost a year to the day since I wrote that post, I've finished my flying for 2018 and it's time to see how that decision played out.
Since part-way through September American Express has been running a promotion for anyone looking to convert their Membership Rewards Points (US) to Avios and the 40% bonus it has been offering tempted a lot of people...and rightly so. Sadly the 40% conversion bonus ends today so, if you think you're going to need to top up your Avios balance anytime soon, today would be the day to do just that.
As of today British Airways has released an extra 50,000 Club World (Business Class) seats across a variety of routes to/from London. Bookings must be made by 2 December and Travel must be taken by 31 March 2019.
Shopping portals can be a very easy way to boost your miles & points balances without spending any cash you weren’t planning to spend (as long as you’re disciplined) and, right now, the British Airways eStore is offering what looks like a very tempting offer - 40% bonus Avios.
