£100 Off British Airways Flights – Thanks To American Express!

My fellow InsideFlyer Ian has been doing a great job helping us all keep track of the latest American Express statement credit offers, but I thought this deal deserved flagging in its own right.

If the offer is attached to one of your cards, you can get £100 back when you spend £500+ at ba.com. My own experience and other anecdotal evidence suggests that it’s only popped up on the British Airways American Express cards so far, which makes sense I suppose.


My card is the free one and I’ve got the offer, but I know for a fact that at least some people with the Premium Plus British Airways (£195 fee) have got the same.

As with all Amex statement credit offers, you need to login into your account and then click to ‘save’ the offer to your card.

You need to book by 24 November 2016, and the rules state that it’s for UK departure flights only. Whether that’s actually true remains to be seen, but to be safe I’d recommend sticking to the rules.

BA FIrst Class on their new Boeing 787s looks great!

There’s no mention of not getting the credit for money spent paying the taxes/surcharges on British Airways Avios award tickets, so I assume that should be absolutely fine – and takes the sting out of the fees a little. Sadly, it really isn’t too hard to clock up £500 in charges on an award ticket with BA!

    Can’t see why this wouldn’t apply to purchased avios points having read the TS & cs. They obviously intend it to be for flight bookings.

      No, but keep an eye on the Amex Connect UK page, which is Amex offers available to all UK Amex cardholders. I doubt this one will appear there, but it’s possibility. We’ll certainly flag it if it does.
