British Airways Executive Club has launched a new Avios sale that comes at up to 50% bonus for purchases made through October 22, 2018.
British Airways has capped the number of Avios that one can purchase any calendar year before any bonuses at 100,000 that has been lifted during this sale to 200,000.
You can access this offer on BA’s website here.
Note that this offer is only available for Executive Club members in the UK.
The maximum bonus during these sales has been 50% and the price of the Avios has been dependent where your account is based.
Buying Avios can make sense if you are able to use them for Reward Flight Savers with limited taxes/fees (my favorite option for travel between London and European cities) or you have a 2-4-1 redemption voucher and happen to be Gold Guest List member (much better availability). Perhaps you can throw in an upgrade voucher for two as well…
There are some partners that have very low or no fuel surcharges at all. Using Avios for those flights can be a good deal.
Considering that BA charges very high fuel surcharges on economy awards, it rarely makes sense to redeem for long-haul economy flights on their own metal (some exceptions as is always the case).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This offer is only open to Members of the British Airways Executive Club resident in the United Kingdom (Eligible Participants).
The offer is available from 00:01 (BST) Thursday 18 October to 23:59 (BST) Monday 22 October 2018 only (the ‘Offer Period’).
