British Airways Card Brings Back 100,000 Mile Bonus
British Airways Visa Signature Card has brought back its 100,000 bonus mile rewards program. The rewards can also be converted to AAdvantage points to be used on American Airlines.
There are some steep spending tiers that are needed to qualify for the 100,000 miles bonus:
- 50,000 after spending $2,000 on the card in the first 3 months of being a cardholder.
- 25,000 after spending $10,000 on the card in the first year.
- 25,000 after spending an additional $10,000 on the card in the first year.
There is also a $95 annual fee on the card.
It may take a lot of money to accumulate those bonus points, but they equate to $1,000 in savings at American Airlines or British Airways. If you already use your credit card this frequently, the added rewards could make the card attractive.
There are no foreign transaction fees on this card. You can earn 2.5 Avios (rewards points) for every $1 you spend on British Airway purchases; 1.25 Avios on all other purchases. The card is also equipped with chip and signature technology, which means you can use quite easily in European countries. A lot of travelers have problems with the magnetic stripe cards typically used in America.
