American Express cards offer cardholders special promotions where you can earn bonus points or cash back on your purchases, simply known as Amex Offers. When you register the offer to your card and meet the spending requirement, you’ll be on your way to bonus points or extra cash. With this Amex Offer, you can earn bonus Avios by paying for flights on ba.com.

More specifically, you’ll earn an extra 3,000 Avios by spending £300 or more on a British Airways flight purchased through the airline’s website. All you need to do is save the offer to your card and spend the minimum of £300. The offer expires 16 February 2020 and can be used once per card for a maximum bonus of 3,000 Avios after £300 in spend. Based on TPG U.K.’s most recent valuations, the 3,000 bonus Avios are worth £33.

According to the terms and conditions, the offer is only valid at on the British Airways British Airways website and must be paid for on the same American Express card that the offer is registered to. Once the purchase has been made, the statement credit should appear on your account within five days, but may take up to 90 days from 16 February 2020.

While this offer was available on my British Airways American Express Credit Card from Amex U.K., it’s worth noting that not all offers are available to all members at the same time, and some offers may have different savings or cash back amounts. The terms and conditions state that this offer only applies to those cardmembers who were targeted.

To add the offer to your card, log in to your Amex account and scroll to the bottom of the page and click ‘View All’ in the Amex offers section. Once you’ve found the offer you want, click ‘Save to Card’ and be sure to use that card on your eligible purchases.
