The British Airways 100,000 Avios offer has been gone for several months, but a link just resurfaced that gives a total of 100K of them. The only trick is you do have a pretty stiff spend requirement to get the miles but they do give you time. The offer is for 50,000 Avios (BA’s version of frequent flyer miles) after spending $1000 in the first 3 months. Then 25,000 more after spending $10,000 in the first year. Then another 25,000 after spending another $10,000 in that first year.
I know $20,000 sounds like a lot to spend to get all the Avios, but with some of the prepaid cards opportunities currently available and Kiva Loans it is a lot easier to meet than you might think without breaking your budget. Anyone I know can at least meet the 50,000 Avios spending of $1000 though so even if you screw up and don’t meet the bigger spend requirement, 50,000 is still a nice amount.
Check out our full review on this card here for all the goodies, but these cards can be super valuable for short distance trips. Think about Miami to Cancun for 9000 Avios round trip for instance! I found out about this via a Million Mile Secrets post so a hat tip goes to them!
