Until 18th August 2019, you can get a 45% 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 45% bonus).
At the top end you can buy 290,000 Avios for £3,215, which works out at ~1.108p per Avios, or £11.08 per 1,000.
For buying BA Avios quickly and easily in large quantities, that’s not actually a terrible price, though it is slightly higher than the rate available during some of the other Avios sales we’ve seen in recent months.
I wouldn’t recommend a speculative purchase, but if you have an immediate high-value redemption in mind and have already checked that award space exists for the dates you want to travel on, this could be an ok deal.
Will you be taking advantage of the 45% bonus?
