Just a quick note to let all my readers know that the nice British Airways Chase Visa 100,000 Avios bonus offer will not be around forever.  I’ve been notified that they will pull the offer on June 7, 2012.  This is a great offer for 50,000 Avios after the first purchase.  Almost a “pack of gum” offer but he does have that annual fee.  The annual fee of $95 in not waived but that is alot of Avios for $95.  You can easily use it for 2 domestic tickets.  If a husband and wife both get the cards, there is 100,000 Avios and 4 domestic tickets for your next family vacation in the bank.  No minimum spend to meet for that.  To receive the full 100,000 Avios you need to be a big spending and charge $20,000 over the first year.  The first $10,000 charged gives you 25,000 Avios and the second $10,000 gives you the final 25,000 Avios.  I think this is not really feasible for the average folks, like myself.  Remember, that American Airlines is British Airlines main partner in the U.S and American flies everywhere.  My family is using 100,000 Avios this fall to fly SFO – BOS.  The taxes on the tickets were $20 ($5 each).  Pretty affordable if you ask me!  You can also fly short little flights that only cost 4,500 Avios in some cases since British Airways now calculates the Avios required based upon a distance chart.  So many good uses for these Avios.

Anyway, if you were on the fence with this offer, don’t think about it too long!  These kinds of offers come and go!
