Don’t Waste Your Avios Points on Certain Flights


It’s important to note here that the flights you can get from your Avios points are NOT FREE!! 

You will still have to pay tax and fees.

Therefore, it is almost pointless to use your points on short-haul flights around Europe. Budget airlines will nearly always be a similar (if not better!) price to the fees you will pay through your Avios points. 

For example:

Comparing an off-peak London to Barcelona return flight in February 2019 between what you can get for your Avios points and what you find on Skyscanner (real flight cost)…

Remember, 1 point equates to roughly £1, so to waste 13,000 points on a short flight to save £50 would be more silly than a clown at a 4-year-old’s birthday partay!

Now, let me ask you this…

If you were able to fly business class for the price of economy or less would you be interested?

The more you keep reading this document the more you realise how this is possible.

But you will have to use your points wisely to make the most of this strategy!

 

For example: 

  • Off-peak London to New York return in April 2019.

 

 

Are you beginning to notice that it’s not always worth using your points for certain flights? 

This is because the difference for an economy flight would only save you £30 but cost a heap of points. 

Alternatively, you could save over 5 times the amount to fly like a prince or princess if you accumulate the points.

Don’t worry! Read on to see how to boost Avios points to achieve these numbers for us “normal people”!

 

Here’s another real-life example: 

  • Doha to London return flight June to August 2019 (outbound to London is off-peak but the return is a peak flight).

The real flight cost has two numbers showing the direct flight and the cheapest flight (found on Skyscanner). 

 

 

An option like this would be personal preference and depend on how much travelling you do in a year. 

Taking the economy option here could leave extra points for additional flights in the year.

But you would make almost 13 times the savings on a business class direct flight if you had the points!!

Speaking of getting enough points, here is the juicy section on how to boost Avios points…

How to boost Avios points to earn 84,000 points a year without paying fees 

Here’s an example of what you can do as a couple if you spend £25,000 a year on credit cards (obviously you’ve downloaded the budget sheet above to calculate how much you spend already!)

  • Mike takes out a BA Amex card and spends £1,000 within the first 3 months to receive a bonus 5,000 points (6,000 for you if you use this link!)
  • Mike adds Sarah (his wife) as a secondary card owner of the BA Amex card
  • Sarah takes out the Amex Gold and spends £2,000 within the first 3 months to earn 20,000 points (22,000 for you if you use this link!)
  • Sarah refers Mike to the Amex Gold card for an additional 9,000 points
  • Mike spends £2,000 in the first 3 months on the Gold card to get 22,000 bonus points
  • They both cancel their Gold card as soon as this is done (they pay no fee as the first year is free!)
  • They focus on mainly spending on the BA Amex card to reach £20,000 by the end of the year to receive the companion voucher (buy one get one free plane ticket… Yes, ANY ticket… Even First Class!)
  • So after one year of spending £25,000, they will also accumulate 25,000 points.

And here is the maths:

  • 5,000
  • 20,000
  • 9,000
  • 22,000
  • 25,000

= 81,000 points!! (use the above links and yours would be 84,000 points!)

 

Therefore, this can get you AND your partner a return flight to Sydney on an economy or premium economy to Dubai for the price of fees and taxes!

The Ultimate Strategy- How to Boost Avios Points to Recieve 113,500 Points


Ok pumpkin, are you ready to see how you can stand out like an honest man in the White House?

The same principles apply as above. 

Spend £25,000 a year on credit cards as a couple… but chuck in one £195 fee 

Is £195 worth 30,000 points to you?… 

You decide…

  • Mike takes out a BA Amex Premium Plus card and spends £3,000 within the first 3 months to receive a bonus 25,000 points. Plus he pays £195 fee.
  • Mike adds Sarah as a secondary card owner of the BA Amex Premium Plus card
  • Sarah (his wife) takes out the Amex Gold and spends £2,000 within the first 3 months to earn 20,000 points (22,000 for you if you use this link!)
  • Sarah refers Mike to the Amex Gold card for an additional 9,000 points
  • Mike spends £2,000 in the first 3 months on the Gold card to get 22,000 bonus points
  • They both cancel their Gold card as soon as this is done (they pay no fee as the first year is free!)
  • They focus on mainly spending on the BA Amex Premium Plus card to reach £10,000 by the end of the year to receive the companion voucher (buy one get one free plane ticket… Yes, ANY ticket… Even First Class!)
  • So after one year of spending £25,000 (£4,000 on the Gold card), they will also accumulate 35,500 points (the Premium card is 1.5 points per £1 spent).

Therefore, the maths is:

  • 25,000
  • 20,000
  • 9,000
  • 22,000
  • 35,500

= 111,500 (113,500 for you if you use the above link)

This can take you AND your partner to Dubai on a business class return flight!

 

STOP

It doesn’t end there!

Because only one of you is the main cardholder, the other one can become the main cardholder NEXT YEAR.

Plus the Gold cards will have been cancelled for over six months soooo…

Get on it like shit on velcro

 

Can You Transfer These Points Onto One Account?

Does Pamela Anderson have trouble seeing her belly button?

Once both your spouse and your own points are into your BA Executive accounts (use the Amex app!) it’s super easy to get all of these points into one account.

So this allows you to make the most of that companion voucher (you only get one a year).

Then log into your BA Executive Club, click “manage my account”, click “my household account” and fill in the details. 

Jobs a goodun!
