British Airways has finally published details of the changes that it's making to the British Airways Executive Club Tier Points targets in light of the current travel crisis but, unsurprisingly, the changes are mostly miserly and poorly thought through.
British Airways has launched another Avios sale in which it is offering bonuses of 50% on Avios purchases made through 22 March 2020 and, as this represents the best bonus we generally see British Airways offer, if you need to top up an Avios account this is may be a sale you should be considering.
British Airways and Qatar Airways are both running very good Business Class sales right now (I've written about both today) and, if you know what to look for, it's possible to combine some of the better offers from these sales to rack up a serious number of Tier Points in the British Airways Executive Club. It's even possible to earn oneworld Sapphire status for under £1,600.
I didn't make the change to BA lightly. I had enjoyed the best part of a decade as a top-tier AAdvantage member but the rapid devaluation to benefits that followed the US Airways takeover of American Airlines combined with the introduction of minimum spend criteria meant that AAdvantage Executive Platinum status was no longer a sensible option for me. The status cost too much to earn and math just didn't stack up.
British Airways has announced that Executive Club members will be able to earn double or triple Avios on spending with a host of household brands this holiday season. With increased earnings available through both the US and UK portals, these deals should be useful to quite a few TFM readers.
American Express has been offering a 40% bonus on Membership Rewards Points transfers to the British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus and Aer Lingus' Aer Club since the beginning of August, but today is the last day to take advantage of this offer.
With the pilots' union claiming that it's taking the high-road in negotiations with management, it's now British Airways' turn to try to get back on the good side of customers by launching a double Avios promotion which will run through most of the remainder of this year.
British Airways is currently offering a 30% bonus to anyone willing to buy Avios in its latest sale so it's time to take a look at just how good or bad a deal this actually is - should you be buying or should you be walking away?
Towards the end of last month Chase made a small but noticeable improvement to its British Airways Visa card when it added "taxes and fees" statement credits to the list of benefits the card offers but, having attempted to reassess my negative view on this card, I still can't escape the conclusion that this really isn't a very good credit card at all.
For the past couple of weeks, British Airways has been running an Avios sale in which it has been offering members of its Executive Club the chance to earn a bonus of up to 45% on the Avios they buy. This sale ends on 18 August (Sunday) so you have just a few days left to make the most of this deal if you think the math works in your favor.
