Current Avios promotions

Avios alert, Avios alert...

I'm always on the lookout for ways to boost my Avios balance. A few hundred Avios here and there soon add up. Likewise, I'm just as interested in deals that will help me spend them at the lowest rate possible.

Here's the current list of Avios promotions that I'm aware of. This is a live list, so it could contain 50 entries, or it could contain zero. If you find a promotion not listed, please do let me know and I'll add it.

Save 50% on BA long-haul economy Avios redemptions

Expires: 17th December 2017

If you've been collecting Avios, this might be the time to redeem them. BA have cut the amount of Avios needed by half to over 90 long haul destinations. Normally, using Avios for economy seats is a bit of a waste, but not with this promotion. A return to LA will only set you back 16,250 Avios. Some routes are excluded, including Sydney, Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, San Jose (Costa Rica - which is a shame as that's where I had my eye on) and Grenada. You must book by 17th December for travel between 4th January and 30th June 2018.
