The usual offer for a British Airways Visa is 15,000 miles with first purchase, and the card comes with a $75 annual fee.
Now there’s an offer of 20,000 miles with first purchase, though still with the fee (unlike the United, American, etc. cards there’s no first year fee waiver).

- As you only need 25k round trip to upgrade from WT+ to www.newclubworld.com fully flat beds, and the fares start at $650 rtn incl tax with no co-pay, AND you earn 125% of miles on the WT+ ticket you purchase (making the net cost of a US – Europe rtn upgrade around 15k miles) then yes it’s a great deal.
Absolutely worth the $75.
If you don’t already have a British Airways account, signing up for the Visa will get you one.
