Getting free Avios is never a bad thing – even if it is only 250 on this occasion!

Check your Amex offers to see if you can get 250 bonus Avios for spending £5+ on ANYTHING using your BA or BA Premium Plus American Express.

Save to Card to get 250 BA Avios points when you spend £5 in any UK store online and instore at any business that accepts Amex as a payment method by 18/11/2019. Valid once per Card to the first 40,000 Cardmembers to save


If you were feeling particularly grouchy (it is Monday morning…), I suppose you could argue that as you need to spend £5 on your card, the bonus Avios aren’t really free.

Given that the offer is due to last until 18th November though and it doesn’t matter what you buy, I can’t think anyone who wouldn’t need to spend a fiver on something between now and then. If you were going to spend the money regardless, I think it’s reasonable to say the bonus Avios are effectively free.

    I received this yesterday in my offers section of my BAPP and also a similar offer on my AMEX Platinum for 250 MRP when spending £5

    It is on my wife’s Amex gold card, but not my supplementary card on her account. And it’s not on either of our BAPP cards, which we use very regularly.
    So maybe it’s targeted at those which have not spent for some time.
