Hi,
I got the Chase British Airways Visa card a few years ago to get the 100,000 British Airways Avios points.  I also got another card for my wife, as an authorized user.

Can she apply for her own Chase British Airways Visa and earn her own British Airways Avios points bonus?  Do we have to cancel the card under her name that’s listed on my account?  Are there restrictions on this?

50% Off London British Airways Award Flights & Why It’s Not a Good Deal

Disclosure:  Emily & I get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do!

Fancy a trip to London this autumn or winter?

For 2 weeks only, British Airways is having a sale on coach class award tickets to and from London, UK.  Over 20 destinations are included, and cost half the number of miles normally needed for an award seat.  But you have to book by July 13, 2014, for travel between October 1, 2014, and February 28, 2015.   And travel between December 18, 2014, and January 10, 2015 (when many folks want to travel), is excluded.

You can book both 1-way and round-trip award tickets with this sale.  But even though you’re paying half the usual number of miles, you’re still responsible for paying the full amount of taxes and fees for the ticket.  Those can be upwards of 400 pounds (~$684) round-trip!

BUT…you’ll have to jump through some hoops to take advantage of the deal, including signing-up for a UK Avios account.

You Can Book Over 20 Destinations for Half the Usual Number of Miles (but the Same High Taxes and Fees)

But are there any circumstances where this may be a good deal for you?

20,000 Miles After 1st Purchase From the LANPASS Card

Disclosure: Emily & I get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do. We don’t write about all the credit cards available in the US, but only the ones which get us miles and points or cash back for Big Travel with Small Money!

You get 20,000 miles after your 1st purchase from the LANPASS Visa Signature card from US Bank.  The sign-up bonus is easy to get and the annual fee is waived for the 1st year.  But I’d only recommend this card to certain groups of people.

If you’re new to miles and points there are much better cards available from the Hot Deals tab.  But if you’ve already got most of the cards, the LANPASS Visa Signature card could be interesting.
