Through March 5 Only you can earn 150 British Airways Avios per dollar joining a dating site.
This means buying BA points at 2/3rds of a cent apiece. This doubles the usual good deal.
The British Airways online shopping portal is offering 150 Avios per dollar spent with Match.com.
Since you earn points only on first-time subscriptions, you want the biggest purchase possible — $274.25 for 41,138 Avios for $0.0067 per point.
One Mile at a Time points out that eHarmony is offering 130 points per dollar under this deal, and that’s almost as good. Sign up for a 12-month $251.40 subscription for 32,682 Avios or $0.0077 apiece.
There’s about 73,000 Avios available for $525.
