British Airways is currently selling Avios with a 40% bonus when you maximize the purchase offer. With British Airways Executive Club, you can use Avios on any Oneworld flight worldwide, as well as a select group of non-alliance partners.
Here’s what you need to know.
With this offer, you’re allowed to purchase British Airways Avios in amounts of 2,000 to 200,000 Avios. With your purchase, you’ll receive a 40% bonus for a grand total of up to 280,000 Avios.
Normally British Airways caps the number of Avios you can purchase during the year, but that cap has been raised to 200,000 Avios. If you haven’t purchased already this year, you won’t have to worry about exceeding the thresholds set on a normal account.
You’ll have until 6:59 p.m. ET on December 15, 2023, to take advantage of this offer.
Assuming you maximize the offer and purchase all 200,000 Avios, with 80,000 Avios as a bonus, U.S. accounts will pay $4,599.Hot Tip:
Consider making your purchase with the British Airways Visa Signature® Card to earn 3x Avios per dollar spent on British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia, and LEVEL flight purchases. You’ll also earn a Travel Together Ticket after $30,000 in card spend in a calendar year and can receive up to $600 in award flight statement credits each year.
Avios can provide significant savings depending on how you’re using them:

Airlines will often sell frequent flyer miles as a way to boost cash quickly since the airline controls the currency. By selling miles through their own payment portal, they keep the cash from the transaction yet still have control to value (or devalue) the currency as needed.
While purchasing miles is almost always exorbitantly expensive, doing so when there’s a bonus offer allows you to get more bang for your buck. British Airways Avios is a very versatile award currency, and since Executive Club is a transfer partner of most major credit card programs, you can accumulate Avios quickly to be used for aspirational redemptions.
