** OFFER GONE **

When it comes to Credit Cards going wild, nothing beats a card that gives a 100,000 miles! Last year both CapitalOne and British Airways had this offer. Both repeated it earlier this year too, although not as good in it’s terms as last year. British Airways has now taken the unprecedented step to be back a second time Chase is once again a promotion where you can earn a 100,000 Avios.

Here are the terms:

  • EARN UP TO 100,000 BONUS AVIOS
  • 50,000 Avios after the first purchase
  • Another 25,000 Avios after the first $10,000 spent in the first year
  • Yet another 25,000 Avios after the second $10,000 spent in the first year
  • NEW: SMART CHIP TECHNOLOGY
  • NO FOREIGN TRANSACTION FEES
  • TRAVEL TOGETHER TICKET
  • Companion ticket after $30,000 spent
  • EARN AVIOS WITH EVERY PURCHASE
  • 1.25 Avios for all purchases. 2.5 Avios for British Airways tickets
  • ALL THESE BENEFITS FOR AN ANNUAL FEE OF $95
  • Not waived for the first year (same as earlier this year)
  • Apply here: British Airways Visa Signature® Card ** OFFER GONE **

Check it out. If you can spend the money – $20,000 in the first year, then it is an excellent deal not to be passed up. If you cannot, it’s still 50,000 Avios. Also remember, British Airways allows for household accounts. So, multiple family members can combine their Avios. My wife and I have over 250,000 Avios in our household account!

British Airways has gone wild! They are giving us multiple opportunities to hoard up on Avios. I already have over 155,000 Avios in my household account and am loving these promotions they are running to get my Avios total way way up. Here are a few I found:

offer for 100,000 Avios!

British Airways has brought back its 100,000 Avios credit card from Chase. I blogged about this credit card offer in my post here. This is a great offer – 100,000 Avios for $20,000 spend in the first year. Even if you don’t hit the spend goals, it is 50,000 Avios after the first purchase and 25,000 Avios after the first $10,000 spent in the firs year (25,000 Avios after the 2nd $10,000 spend). Check it out – . My wife got this card last year. I got it this year. Glad to see it come back.

25% bonus on transferring Hotel points to Avios

British Airways just announced a promotion where it is offering a 25% bonus on transferring hotel points to Avios. List of participating hotels is available here. Not bad at all! Do note that point to Avios ratio varies by hotel. (Edit: corrected from original post)

Transfer BMI Miles to Avios

As I blogged just a couple of days ago, starting July 3rd, you will be able to transfer your BMI destination miles to Avios (or vice versa). If you have some BMI miles, add them to your Avios.

Remember, Avios also allows for household accounts which allow you to combine miles between family members. Great way to bump up your total Avios.

Happy Avios accumulation! I will end up with over 350,000 Avios by the time I am done!

Is there any other Avios promotion I may have missed? Do you plan to use any of these? Leave a comment.

Yes, it has happened! As I had predicted in my last post, BMI has announced that in parallel with it’s exit from Star Alliance, it will allow for BMI Diamond Club Destination miles to be transferred to British Airways Executive Club Avios and vice versa. While the two programs have not been merged, they are now equal partners. BA is also reciprocating status between the two programs and allowing privileges like lounge access to each others Elite members. Full OneWorld membership is coming soon too, for sure.

The official date of exit from Star Alliance is also today, but BMI members will still get Star Alliance status recognized and have the ability to earn or redeem miles till May 31st. This is good as it leaves no one in limbo.

Here are some excerpts from the announcement today:

Dear UnRoadWarrior

I’m writing to advise you of some important changes to the Diamond Club programme following the sale of bmi to IAG, the owner of British Airways, on 20 April 2012.

As a result, there are some key changes to your Diamond Club membership, which I would like to outline below, which also includes an invitation from British Airways.

Announcement of bmi’s exit from Star Alliance

A new partnership with British Airways

Business as usual for Diamond Club

1. bmi’s exit from Star Alliance

I’d firstly like to advise that from 20 April bmi will no longer be a member of Star Alliance.

2. A new partnership with British Airways

You will also be able to transfer your destinations miles to Executive Club Avios points at a rate of 1:1. British Airways will also be offering Executive Club customers the ability to transfer from Executive Club Avios points into destinations miles at a rate of 1:1. For example 100 destinations miles could be transferred into 100 Avios points and vice versa.

We are creating an online tool that will allow Diamond Club and Executive Club customers to undertake transfers, which will be available from 3 July 2012. We will contact you nearer that date to explain how the tool will work and how to access it.

While I am sad to see BMI leave Star Alliance – I would have rather seen them stay as a full member of the Lufthansa Group – their alliance with BA and hopefully soon with OneWorld is welcome. I would hated to see them die as an airline.

I posted an article last week about the new that is giving 100,000 Avios points. I interchangeably referred to Avios as points and miles in my post. I got a clarification email from The Mileage Company, which manages British Airways’ frequent flyer program, letting me know that Avios is not miles, but a common currency for all IAG airlines. I have corrected the post and it now refers to Avios as points. I would like to thank the Mileage company for reechoing out. They also sent me an FAQ about Avios, that I am posting here for everyones reference.

Avios FAQ:

What is Avios?
Avios is the new shared reward currency for British Airways Executive Club.

Why did you create one shared currency?
British Airways and Iberia have merged to form the International Airlines Group (IAG). The Mileage Company, operators of the UK Avios travel rewards program and the Avios shared currency, is part of IAG. Having a shared global currency means giving customers more choice, flexibility and better value across all IAG loyalty programs. As IAG grows, Avios will grow with it. The intention is for Avios to be the currency collected by members of all IAG airline brands’ loyalty programs.

What are the benefits of Avios to the customers?
Customers will see a wide variety of benefits including:
• Cabin upgrades using Avios
• A new range of travel reward redemption options, including hotels and car hire for BA Executive Club members
• More flexibility as customers can now use Avios for one-way flights or to mix and match the airports they fly to and from.

Is one Avios point the same value as a former BA Mile?
Yes, one Avios is exactly one BA mile.

The statement – “As IAG grows, Avios will grow with it. The intention is for Avios to be the currency collected by members of all IAG airline brands’ loyalty programs”, leads me to believe that BMI’s Diamond club will soon be adopting the Avios currency, even if they remain independent of British Airways, as an airline.

No matter what you may call them (Iraqi Dinar’s anyone), the new is till a prime offer to get with it’s 100,000 Avios points.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask by leaving a comment below.
