British Airways Avios are one of the most valuable points you can collect, even with the dreaded fuel surcharge when redeeming them for flights on British Airways. While buying Avios or any other points or miles is not recommended, every so often there is a bonus that can make things far more attractive. Currently, BA is offering Double Avios for purchases through its Shopping Portal. The offer is valid through March 5, 2017.
To benefit from the offer all you need to do is head over to the BA Shopping Portal, the offer is valid in the UK, and the US so make sure you select the right region from the menu at the top.
Once you have selected your location, you can view all the offers from the available retailers. To find the best value, select all retailers and choose the site to sort them by the amount of Avios up for grabs.
There is some outstanding value to be had, with the best value being for signing up for the biggest possible account you can have with match.com. Even if you never use the account, this would work out at a cost per Avios of 0.67 cents. A cost of less than a cent is an excellent deal in any book. Update: The match.com offer seems to be gone! Alternatively, if you want to make a purchase that you will actually, use the following table shows how much the Avios will cost.
|Avios Per $ Spent||Cost in Cents|
While the price in cents goes up, if you are purchasing something you will use and planned to purchase anyway it’s a win-win situation. Boosting your Internet security with a purchase from Norton will get you Avios for as little as 1.11 cents.
This is a great deal to move some spending forward, and stock up on some Avios especially if you consider that they have a longer lifespan than most airline miles.
