New 50% Bonus on BA Avios Purchases – Good Deal?

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

Until 24th February 2019, you can get a 50% bonus when purchasing BA Avios through British Airways Executive Club. The standard 100,000 annual limit has also been temporarily lifted to 200,000 (not including the 50% bonus).

Good deal?

At the top end you can buy 300,000 Avios for £3,215, which works out at ~1.071p per Avios, or £10.71 per 1,000.

For buying BA Avios quickly and easily in large quantities, that’s not actually a terrible price. It’s not cheap enough to tempt me personally, but most cheaper methods (Groupon, Vent Privee, etc) have low purchase limits, and/or involve jumping through various hoops.

I wouldn’t recommend a speculative purchase, but if you have a high-value redemption in mind and have already checked that award space exists for the dates you want to travel on, this could be a good deal.

Will you be taking advantage of the 50% bonus?
