Like many other airlines, British Airways runs a shopping portal (BA eStore) where you can earn Avios for clicking through their affiliate links with select partners and make a purchase. This is a useful way to top up your BA account and sometimes the rebate can be quite generous.
To celebrate Black Friday and Christmas, BA eStore has just launched a bonus Avios promotion.
- You earn bonus Avios for the first 10 transactions made by December 31st
- Each purchase needs to be at least £30 (excluding VAT and delivery)
- The first transaction earns a bonus of 100 Avios, the second 200 Avios, and all the way to 1,000 Avios for the tenth
- The maximum bonus to be earned is 5,500 Avios
I’d say 5,500 Avios is worth about £55 so it’s a nice rebate if you have a few purchases to make in the next month. However like many other cashback sites, tracking may not always be reliable – I had a purchase at Selfridges last year which didn’t track, and my claim was never answered…
