They don’t seem to be promoting this as hard as back in November, but Rick reports this link came up on an online boarding pass that one of his readers printed.
To remind, it’s 50,000 miles with first purchase and 50,000 more miles after $2000 in spend within 3 months. Spend $30,000 in a calendar year and earn a free companion award ticket.
British Airways offers family accounts, so two people linking their accounts and getting this card can combine their miles — put $2000 on one card, $30,000 on the other, and you have 240,000 miles to use plus a free companion. In other words, $32,000 in spend nets 480,000 miles worth of travel.
Of course, the British Airways award chart is expensive. So a half million miles doesn’t send two people as far as you think it will in premium classes. But this is still an amazing deal, even with the high fuel surcharges on British Airways-metal awards.
Act now before this one disappears again.
