Maximizing The Offer
If you are a frequent flyer and will be taking 8 or more eligible flights you need to take some steps to maximize your earnings from the offer as you will only earn on the first eight flight segments. The way to maximize your earnings is to focus your next eligible flights with BA on long-haul routes only; if you have short-haul flights in between the long-haul ones consider switching them to another airline, or crediting them to another program. Your next eight eligible flights should be the longest you can make them.
If you collect Avios and don’t live in the any of the excluded territories, this promotion is a great way to boost your Avios earning for the next few months. If you are in the US and want to boost your Avios, you can always apply for the British Airways Visa Signature® Card which comes with a decent set of perks and benefits.
