British Airways Executive Club has launched Avios sale that comes with 40% bonus for purchases made between May 24 – 26, 2016.
British Airways has also temporarily increased the number of Avios you can purchase before any bonuses from 35,000 to 100,000. The number of Avios that you can purchase under this offer with the bonus included is 140,000.
You can access this offer on BA’s website here.
And the price is:
140,000 Avios cost 1,800 euros that is 1.29 euro cents each. Note that the price could be different in GBP and USD.
Buying Avios can make sense if you are able to use them for Reward Flight Savers or you have 2-4-1 redemption voucher and happen to be Gold Guest List member (much better availability). Perhaps you can thrown in an upgrade voucher for two as well…
Considering that BA charges very high fuel surcharges on economy awards, it rarely make sense to redeem for long-haul economy flights (some exceptions as is always the case).
