[Disclosure: Emily and I don't get a referral for this card as of the post publication date.]
Via this FlyerTalk thread, Chase is again offering 100,000 Avios points for the British Airways credit card.
The terms are almost the same as the last offer. You get:
- 50,000 points after spending $1,000 within 3 months
- Another 25,000 points after spending $10,000 within 1 year
- And another 25,000 points after spending another $10,000 (i.e. a total of $10,000 + $10,000) within 1 year
Avios are good for short distance travel within the US. They are also good for travel to South America without fuel surcharges, and are great to fly to Europe if you’re comfortable paying ~$400 each way in fuel surcharges (think of it as paying for coach, but traveling in business or first class).
However, in my opinion, getting 2 Citi American Airlines cards for 50,000 miles each or 100,000 miles in total is much better than the Chase British Airways deal if you have to just pick one offer. But Avios points are a good addition to your miles and points collection.
Avios points are quirky to use, so make sure the card is right for you before applying.
