Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

1.   100,000 Points British Airways Credit Card.  Chase and British Airways have confirmed extending the deadline for the British Airways 100,000 credit card to July 18, 2012.

The offer was supposed to end on June 7, but was likely extended because the card hadn’t reached its marketing goals. 

You get 50,000 points after your 1st purchase, another 25,000 points after spending $10,000 within 1 year and another 25,000 points after spending $10,000 within 1 year.  Also, check out this comment for details on the other British Airways offer (50,000 points after 1st year, and 50,000 points in the 2nd year after 1st purchase).

British Airways Avios are great for short distance flights and worth keeping in your miles and points toolkit.  That’s because most miles and points are great for long distance flights, while Avios points are good for short distance flights.  I’ve paid 4,500 Avios points for flights from Kansas City to Chicago which would otherwise cost $200!

Avios 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).

But Avios points are quirky to use, so make sure the card is right for you before applying.

2.  50,000 Points Citi Thank You Premier.  Free Frequent Flyer Miles pointed me to a FlyerTalk thread with a new link to the Citi Thank You Premier which offers 50,000 Thank You points.

As always, I updated the “Bank Rewards Points” tab as soon so that you  always find the best deals.

I like this card because the 1st year fee is waived and 50,000 points can be used towards $665 in airfare on any airline without restrictions when you book your air fare directly through the Thank You website.

Can anyone confirm that a Citi TY Premier card used at Off. Depot for a Vanilla Reload card posts as a Purchase and NOT a Cash advance? Need to meet min spend on Citi card. Thanks

Do Canadian addresses work on any of thesecard applictions?

I know the BA 50,000 is expiring soon, if you have gotten approval for the personal card , can you also apply for a business card, also can BA miles be combined from another account ??

Link tot he 60,000 priority Club card. I don’t think I saw it on your site. https://creditcards.chase.com/credit-cards/ihg-credit-card.aspx

Thanks to your secondary link and instructions from Emily I applied for and received automatic approval for the 50,000 after first purchase and 50,000 after first anniversary BA Chase card on Tuesday! I forgot about doing another app at he same time to minimize hits, but I did one on Wednesday for a Chase Priority Club 60,000 points after first use and was given a wait for 30 days notice. Called the Reconsideration Line (thanks for this btw) and was told I had been approved earlier this morning. So, for no minimum spend, I just locked up 160,000 airline/hotel points. Not bad for my first churn, although it was quite small.
