It is becoming a regular thing now to see cheap Avios for sale via European “membership” sites, and this time it’s French Vente-Privee’s turn!
What’s the deal?
The following packs are available:
4,000 Avios for €59 [€0.0148 per Avios]
9,000 Avios for €109 [€0.0121 per Avios]
20,000 Avios for €229 [€0.0115 per Avios]
35,000 Avios for €399 [€0.0114 per Avios]
Unfortunately the 2,000 Avios pack for €21 has already sold out.
Anything I need to know?
- You will need to have an account registered on the French version of the site, with a French post code. You can just pick any random one…
- Use Google Chrome to translate if your French is a bit rusty…
- You can only buy a maximum of 100,000 Avios per account.
- You will be charged in Euros – so make sure you use a 0% FX card to avoid nasty charges.
- You need to redeem your voucher between 16th September and 18th October inclusive. Avios will be deposited in your BA Executive Club within 5 days of redemption.
Is it a good deal?
At essentially 1p/Avios, it should be difficult for you NOT to get a decent amount of value out of your Avios.
However, remember the “Bank of IAG” can devalue your Avios at any time – so I wouldn’t speculatively buy at this price. If you have a specific use in mind that you know will get you good value for your Avios, or you need to top up for an aspirational redemption – this is a good way of going about it.
