UPDATE: As low as £494 to select cities!
Just as I was preparing a post on rumors of great sales, which I still will release, I see that British Airways are back with a fun new game. This is a fantastic new flash sale and it's centered around London Heathrow departures to most of the world including great places like Los Angeles (A380), Hong Kong, New York and Miami. If you have some British Airways miles to blow that have been a nuisance, it's a great offer, bring you a rare£700 discount for just 30,000 Avios. I've heard rumors that there will be even better ones but at £700 that could be as good as it gets and it's an amazing price. We all have our opinions about rumors...
London to New York, Mumbai, Miami, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Boston, Chicago, Toronto + More. You'll have to check other destinations if you have other interests, I'm just one man after all. You will depart directly from Heathrow, no crazy tricks or connections. The price through booking will be £1400 or less up until payment screen, where you will be able to use 30,000 Avios to knock the total in half or better. Yes, through a promotion, 30,000 Avios will count for £700. Awesome! Don't have Avios? You can instantly turn American Express or Chase points into Avios, giving you the boost you need for big savings. And finally, YES, you will earn full miles and tier points on this booking.
Dates are a bit tight but if you are looking for an unbelievable trip this holiday season it could be good fun. You must depart between the 21st of December to the 3rd of January, returning by the 11th of January. If you happen to find dates that work outside of that framework, book it, sometimes they offer things they don't mean to...
This is bookable directly on British Airways website until November 30th. You will see a price of £1400 throughout booking. When you get to the payment page you will see the option to use 30,000 Avios for £700 value, cutting your total in half. This is far more value than Avios generally offer and is an excellent promotion. I always recommend booking direct with an airline when possible as it makes all customer service, upgrade and other functions much easier. Again, yes you will earn full miles and tier points.
Get on it. If you need to requalify for status, earn status or just simply get some solid easy value from your Avios while earning new ones, this is an offer not to pass up. Unless of course you believe the rumors that the sales may get even better in the near future. I for one can't imagine that if you are willing to use 30,000 Avios, they will ever get much better than £7000 or less per person. I'm a booker at this price. Happy travels!
