I’ve been asked to remove my affiliate links for the British Airways 100,000 point card on Tuesday (tomorrow), July 17th, at 5:00 pm EST.  For most folks, it really is a 50,000 point sign-up bonus since you have to spend $20,000 within 1 year to get the 2nd 50,000 points.

However, you may have good luck with the alternative version of the British Airways card which does not require the $20,000 spending, but requires you to keep the card for a year before getting the 2nd round of 50,000 points.

British Airways points are quirky, but are good for short haul travel within the US on American Airlines, travel to South America, and multi-continent hops with no or low fuel surcharges.  And Avios points are great for travel to Europe if you are willing to pay fuel surcharges (~$400 each way) for a Business or First Class seat.

In a recent poll on the blog, 79% of respondents would collect Avios points compared to 21% who wouldn’t collect them.  Check out the comments in that post to see if collecting Avios points makes sense for you or not.

Bottom Line:  As always, offers come and go, and the British Airways 100,000 point offer has appeared twice before – once in November 2009 and for a second time in April 2011.  I don’t have any inside information, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it back again!  And we should see some new offers on other cards fairly soon.
