A new card has just become available from British Airways for Canadians from the RBC Royal Bank.  The RBC British Airways Visa Infinte is offering 50,000 Avios miles after a min. spend of $5,000.  This is a bit steep of a min. spend and they do not waive the annual fee.  That being said, I think you might want to consider this card as I know there aren’t as many great credit card offers in the Canadian market.  So basically, you are paying $165 for 50,000 Avios.  Not a “pack of gum” offer but not a bad deal either!  Check it out!
Here are the details and links to apply:
Receive 15,000 Avios upon approval and from March 1 to May 31, 2012, get an extra 35,000 Avios if a total of $5,000 in qualifying transactions is posted to your credit card account within the first three months**. That adds up to50,000 Avios. Enough for a trip to London, EnglandΔ!
  • Receive a welcome bonus of 15,000 Avios upon approval**.
  • Earn 1 Avios for every $1 CAD you spend on the card.
