American Express offering double sign up bonus on British Airways AMEX cards

From today, American Express is launching a series of limited-time offers for the most generous Welcome Bonus yet on its British Airways American Express Cards.

Running until 28 February, 2022, these promotions include new Cardmembers receiving a Welcome Bonus of up to double the usual amount, and existing Cardmembers receiving up to 12,000 Avios when they invite a friend.

As usual, when they say new Cardmember, Amex means that a Cardmember has not held any personal American Express Card within the previous 24 months. If a Cardmember has held a personal American Express Card within the previous 24 months, they will be entitled to all other Card benefits, excluding the welcome offer.

British Airways American Express® Credit Card

New Cardmembers who sign up for the British Airways American Express Credit Card before 28 February 2022, will receive a Welcome Bonus of 10,000 Avios, double the usual sign-up reward of 5,000 Avios.

If a new Cardmember is invited by an existing Cardmember they get 12,000 bonus Avios as part of the offer, double the normal 6,000 Avios. While the Cardmember inviting them receives 6,000 bonus Avios, up from 4,000 Avios.

There is also an exclusive offer for British Airways Executive Club members, who will receive 20,000 Avios when they take out the Card, up from the usual 10,000 Avios. This offer is available until 22 February, 2022. It’s free to join the BA Executive Club here. 

The enhanced welcome bonuses for British Airways Executive Club members can be accessed via an email from British Airways which will be sent throughout the offer period and when a British Airways Executive Club member logs into their account.

To qualify for these bonuses, new Cardmembers must spend £1,000 in their first three months. Spend on the card also offers 1 Avios for every £1 spent on top of the Welcome Bonuses.

 

British Airways American Express® Premium Plus Card

New and existing British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers will also see even greater rewards during this offer.

Signing up for a British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card before 28 February, 2022, will see new Cardmembers receive 40,000 bonus Avios, a 60% increase on the usual 25,000 Avios Welcome Bonus. Meanwhile, new Cardmembers invited by an existing Cardmember will get 42,000 bonus Avios, up from 26,000 Avios outside of the offer period, with the existing Cardmember receiving 12,000 bonus Avios, up from 9,000 Avios.

Again, there is an exclusive offer for British Airways Executive Club members, who will earn 45,000 bonus Avios, an extra 15,000 bonus Avios than they would normally receive. It’s free to join the BA Executive Club here.  This offer is available until 22, February 2022.

The enhanced welcome bonuses for British Airways Executive Club members can be accessed via an email from British Airways which will be sent throughout the offer period and when a British Airways Executive Club member logs into their account.

All bonuses on the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card are dependent on the new Cardmember spending £3,000 in their first three months. Spend on the Card also offers 1.5 Avios for every £1 spent on top of the Welcome Bonuses.

American Express recently changed the companion vouchers as well which you can read about here.

 

The British Airways American Express Credit Card representative APR is 24.5% variable, and for existing British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers it is 101.1% variable. The British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card has an annual fee of £250.

  1. I wonder if “held a card” would count if your partner had a card on your Amex account? As mine does …

    • It doesn’t count as held. You are eligible if you are currently a supplementary cardholder on a BA Amex held by someone else, but have not held a card ACCOUNT in your own name in the past 2 years.

  2. If you have a gold card do you get the bonus. I know previously you could earn it the bonus.

    • Charge card or credit card?

      • It’s a credit card! Have they got rid of the ability to get the welcome bonus if you didn’t have the opposite card?

        • Saw this on their website and wondered that I would benefit as I’ve not had a ba one

          New Cardmember offer:
          This new Cardmember offer is only available if you have not held a personal British Airways American Express Card within the previous 24 months.

  3. I currently hold a Gold Amex card, will I get the bonus Avios? Thank you in advance.

  4. >> “There is also an exclusive offer for British Airways Executive Club members, who will receive 20,000 Avios when they take out the Card, up from the usual 10,000 Avios. This offer is available until 22 February, 2022”

    Hi Michele. I can’t actually see this offer anywhere – the BA/Amex page seems to refer to 10,000. Any idea what the link is to see it, please?

    • It came direct from Amex PR office and the only links I have been given are those at the bottom of the article. Have you looked at the terms and conditions in the link included?

    • I have now had clarification from Amex “The enhanced welcome bonuses for British Airways Executive Club members can be accessed via an email from British Airways which will be sent throughout the offer period and when a British Airways Executive Club member logs into their account”
