Should You Buy Avios from British Airways… with a 50% Bonus?

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

British Airways Executive Club is offering a 50% bonus when you purchase Avios before 14 September, 2022.

You can then Combine Your Avios to move them over to Iberia Plus, should you so choose. Or now to Qatar Airways Privilege Club

You will be charged in the currency of the country where your Executive Club account is registered. In general, the price in US dollars is poor. Whether sterling or euros works out cheaper… depends on the fluctuating exchange rate.

For those readers with a UK-based Executive Club account, this is what you would pay:

In general, you would be paying approximately 1.1p per Avios…

Bottom line

1.1p is certainly not a price to be buying Avios speculatively, even though the “floor value” of an Avios point is 0.8p (when spent at Sainsburys) But it can be a great price when you need to acquire large sums of Avios for a specific long-haul 2-for-1 booking, for example…
