100,000 British Airways Avios Chase card sign up bonus is back

Posted on December 9, 2013 by in Travel Deals

BigLar just posted this link on Flyertalk (not an affiliate link). It leads to a sign-up page but makes no specific mentioning of the bonus.

However these are the terms:

There's no better time than now to apply for the British Airways Visa Signature® card¹ to start earning bonus Avios.

– You will get 50,000 bonus Avios after $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.²

– 25,000 bonus Avios after $10,000 in purchases within the first year of account opening.²

– Plus an additional 25,000 bonus Avios after you make an additional $10,000 in purchases also within the first year of account opening.²

Together that's 100,000 bonus Avios, which is enough for a round-trip business class award flight.³ Taxes, fees, and carrier charges are approximately $1,250 per adult in business class based on travel from Seattle to London.

The annual fee of $95 is NOT waived.

When I used such sign up links in the past I usually haven gotten the correct bonus since it's part of the application code. However there is a risk you end up with the smaller offer (the 50,000 points bonus) potentially.

Given how cost effective and easy it is to manufacture $20,000 in spend this card is worth the trouble. I have found more and more options to use Avios effectively especially in South America where I am currently.

We posted a manufactured spend guide here and here.
