INSIDER SECRET: British Airways Avios points are useful for more than just British Airways award flights. They can be great to use for domestic American Airlines flights, because you’ll often pay less and British Airways has a generous change and cancellation policies.
The 100,000-point British Airways Visa Signature® Card offer has returned. Now you can earn up to 100,000 British Airways Avios points after meeting the card’s minimum spending requirements.
This deal will be better (for most people) than the previous offer, which allowed you to earn 4X Avios points on the first $30,000 you spent in the first year of card membership. I’ll explain why.

British Airways Credit Card – 100,000-Point Offer
The British Airways credit card offer has returned to its old 100,000-point bonus, which you can earn after meeting these tiered minimum spending requirements:
- Earn 50,000 Avios points after you spend $3,000 in first 3 months
- Earn an additional 50,000 Avios points after you spend $20,000 (total) in the first year of card membership
With the old offer for this card you could earn 120,000 Avios points in the first year, because the intro offer was for 4 Avios points per $1 spent the first year on up to $30,000 in purchases.
This new offer is better because once you include the points you’ll earn from the minimum spending you’ll be able to earn 120,000 Avios points in the first year with only $20,000 in spending.
British Airways has insanely high taxes and fees on lots of its award flights into and out of the UK, but Avios points can be great for booking Oneworld partner awards. I like to use them strategically to save on American Airlines domestic flights.
