Up to 50% bonus on Avios

There is currently a good amount of Avios reward availability for most routes and I expect this continue for a little while. If you don’t have enough Avios for your redemption there is also a bonus offer for purchasing Avios. BA are offering up to a  50% bonus when you purchase  Avios until 4 July 2021. The offer applies to any purchase of  1,000  to  200,000 Avios. The annual purchase limit is also raised to 200,000.

The bonus rates are:

  • 1,000 – 8,000 Avios = 30% bonus
  • 10,000 – 90,000 Avios = 40% bonus
  • 100,000 – 200,000 Avios = 50% bonus

Unless you have something specific in mind, I wouldn’t bite. This is the usual offer we see and in light of the current circumstances, I would expect there to be plenty more offers, such as 50% on all purchases as they have offered before. 

If you are not sure it’s worth knowing that purchased Avios can be refunded within 14 days of purchase providing the Avios have not been used.

  1. Is it financially prudent to buy Avios, even at 50% discount?

    • Only if you plan to spend them straight away generally as obviously they could be devalued. It depends on what you are spending them on. Sometimes it can work out cheaper than a cash ticket so you have to work it out for the flights you have in mind.
