Right now, the British Airways Visa Signature Card is offering an increased sign-up bonus, allowing you to earn up to 100,000 bonus Avios. The bonus can be met after the following:

  • 50,000 bonus Avios after you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening
  • 25,000 additional bonus Avios after you spend $10,000 total on purchases within your first year from account opening
  • 25,000 additional bonus Avios after you spend $20,000 total on purchases within your first year from account opening

I currently have applied for more than 5 cards in 24 months, so I don’t qualify for most Chase credit cards.  However, the Chase British Airways Visa Card is not affected by the 5/24 rule.  Therefore, I can safely apply for this card, while I wait for my wife’s account to cool down.  Basically I am applying for all non-Chase cards and my wife is only applying for business cards that don’t affect the 5/24 rule.

The British Airways 100K Avios bonus is very valuable because that equates to four roundtrip tickets to Hawaii or 70K Avios equates to a roundtrip ticket from LAX to Auckland, which I used on our recent awesome trip to New Zealand!  I’ve also used Avios to travel within Asia on Cathay and JAL and within Europe on British Airways.  Using Avios is a great way to save money on short haul flights

Note that the $95 annual fee is not waived.  However, it is still a great value if you can spend a lot in a year.  Even with the 50K bonus, you can get great value. Spending $95 for two free tickets to Hawaii from the west coast is an amazing deal. The good news is that you can take a whole year (which I have before) to earn the 100K Avios.  This is a great back burner card to apply for now!

    Good stuff Rom… quick question how transferrable are the Avios for other flights? Such as Star Alliance group?

    Just wondering how useful the points are that way.
