While it’s no longer the days of mega-sign up bonuses, the British Airways Visa Signature® Card has continued to offer a generous 50,000 Avios bonus after spending $2,000 on the card within three months. Avios are simultaneously one of the most valuable and least valuable points currencies. If you’re redeeming for longhaul flights they’re almost always a bad value, while if you’re redeeming for shorthaul travel and for travel on airlines which don’t impose fuel surcharges, Avios can be invaluable. The British Airways Travel Together Ticket can also be a great deal!
Meanwhile it’s worth pointing out that there’s also a link out there right now waiving the first year’s annual fee on the Chase Fairmont Visa Card, which is another excellent card.
If you’ve been eying either of these cards, this is probably about as good as it gets!
