American Express and British Airways launch offer for new and existing Cardmembers which sees Avios rewards soar

From today, American Express is launching a series of limited-time offers that will award generous Welcome Bonuses on its British Airways American Express Cards. Running until 28 February 2022, these promotions include new Cardmembers* receiving a Welcome Bonus of up to double the usual amount, and existing Cardmembers receiving up to 12,000 Avios when they invite a friend. These are among the most generous Welcome Bonuses ever offered on the Cards.

British Airways American Express® Credit Card

New Cardmembers who sign up for the British Airways American Express Credit Card before 28 February 2022, will receive a Welcome Bonus of 10,000 Avios, double the usual sign-up reward of 5,000 Avios.

If a new Cardmember is invited by an existing Cardmember they get 12,000 bonus Avios as part of the offer, double the normal 6,000 Avios. While the Cardmember inviting them receives 6,000 bonus Avios, up from 4,000 Avios. There is also an exclusive offer for British Airways Executive Club members, who will receive 20,000 Avios when they take out the Card, up from the usual 10,000 Avios. This exclusive offer is available until 22 February, 2022. To qualify for these bonuses, new Cardmember must spend £1,000 in their first three months. Spend on the Card also offers 1 Avios for every £1 spent on top of the Welcome Bonuses.

British Airways American Express® Premium Plus Card

New and existing British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers will also see even greater rewards during this offer. Signing up for a British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card before 28 February, 2022, will see new Cardmembers receive 40,000 bonus Avios, a 60% increase on the usual 25,000 Avios Welcome Bonus. Meanwhile, new Cardmembers invited by an existing Cardmember will get 42,000 bonus Avios, up from 26,000 Avios outside of the offer period, with the existing Cardmember receiving 12,000 bonus Avios, up from 9,000 Avios.

Again, there is an exclusive offer for British Airways Executive Club members, who will earn 45,000 bonus Avios, an extra 15,000 bonus Avios than they would normally receive. This offer is available until 22, February 2022. All bonuses on the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card are dependent on the new Cardmember spending £3,000 in their first three months. Spend on the Card also offers 1.5 Avios for every £1 spent on top of the Welcome Bonuses.

Maggie Boyle, Vice President, American Express, said: “As we look to the year ahead, people remain hopeful about the prospect of travelling abroad with friends and family. This is why we have started the year by launching some exciting offers for new and existing British Airways American Express Cardmembers. By offering substantial increases in Avios with these limited time offers, we’re helping them get away and offering our support for their travel aspirations in 2022.”

Beyond the Welcome Bonuses

These offers follow the launch of the improved British Airways American Express Cards in September 2021, which saw American Express make it quicker to earn Companion Vouchers and easier to redeem them, alongside introducing a new look for the Cards.

The British Airways American Express Credit Card representative APR is 24.5% variable, and for existing British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers it is 101.1% variable.
