This card is offered by Chase Bank in the US. Customers can earn 50,000 bonus Avios after they spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening. Customers can also earn a Travel Together Ticket after they spend $20,000 total on purchases within their first year of account opening.
Besides British Airways, customers’ points can be used for flights on 12 partner airlines in the oneworld alliance when they book those flights through BA. Cardholders are awarded 5 points per $1 spent on those three airlines (some competitors with similar fees only award 2 points per $1 spent on the co-branded airline) and then 3 points per $1 spent on hotel reservations.
Customers can get up to $600 back in statement credits each year by booking an award flight to London on British Airways and using this card to pay applicable taxes, fees, and carrier charges. Customers will earn $100 back for each economy or premium economy flight, or $200 for business and first-class tickets, three times each year.
Receive statement credits of $100 for Economy and Premium Economy – or $200 for Business and First Class seats – three times per year, up to $600, when you book a reward flight to London travelling on British Airways and pay taxes, fees and carrier charges with the British Airways Visa Signature card.
Every calendar year you make $30,000 in purchases on your British Airways Visa Signature card, you will earn a Travel Together Ticket good for two years. You can earn two Travel Together Tickets within your first year of account opening by spending $30,000 in the first 12 months. Redeem your Avios for one reward seat for yourself and use your Travel Together Ticket to bring a companion in the same cabin, even first class (taxes, fees and carrier charges apply).
In addition to the bonus, cardmembers earn 5 Avios for every $1 spent British Airways, Aer Lingus, and Iberia flight purchases, and 3 Avios for every $1 spent on hotel accommodations within the first 12 months from account opening. Earn 1 Avios for every $1 spent on all other purchases.
You’ll earn 3 Avios points total for each $1 spent on hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel within your first 12 months from account opening. This is an additional 1 Avios point on top of the 2 Avios points you earn on those purchases in the program. Additional points will appear on your billing statement in a separate line from the base Avios points you earn.
Avios points earned during a billing cycle will be automatically transferred to British Airways after the end of each billing cycle. Avios points will expire according to the British Airways Executive Club program terms and conditions which include maintaining Executive Club program activity for 36 consecutive months.
Avios can be redeemed for reward flights on British Airways and its airline partners to over 900 destinations worldwide. Airline partners include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines®, Aer Lingus, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LEVEL, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, Royal Air Maroc, and S7 Airlines. Existing Executive Club members will be prompted to enter their Executive Club number.
Your Avios will not expire as long as you remain an active member in the Executive Club Program. You remain active by doing one or more of the following during any 36-month period: (a) have an eligible flight; (b) earn Avios by using a British Airways Visa Signature Credit Card for purchases (note that paying the credit card annual membership fee is not considered purchase activity); or (c) otherwise earn Avios in accordance with the Executive Club Program terms and conditions.
