Using online shopping portals can be one of the easiest and best ways to maximize the points you earn. It always makes sense to compare various shopping portals, because sometimes the payouts can differ significantly (sites like evreward.com let you easily track these).
Well, British Airways has just announced an awesome promotion for their shopping portal. You can earn triple Avios when you shop with select retailers through the British Airways shopping portal between May 25 and May 31, 2017.
You’ll want to check out the site to see all the eligible retailers, though just to give a few examples of the available deals:
- eBags — 24 Avios per $1
- Sunglass Hut — 24 Avios per $1
- Overstock.com — 21 Avios per $1
- Neiman Marcus — 18 Avios per $1
- West Elm — 18 Avios per $1
- Walmart — 12 Avios per $1
- Seats — 12 Avios per $1
- Home Depot — 9 Avios per $1
- Apple — 6 Avios per $1
Personally I value Avios at ~1.3 cents each, so these are some pretty significant “returns” with some of these retailers. Getting a 31%+ return at Sunglass Hut or eBags, or a 23%+ return at Neiman Marcus, is pretty solid.
As I always like to point out, if you buy any brand name cologne, skincare, etc., keep in mind that most retailers have similar pricing, so you might as well pick stuff like that up when there’s a bonus through a portal, as we’re seeing now.
Unfortunately this time around there are no bonuses of 150 Avios per dollar spent… not that those were honored the last time around, unfortunately. 😉
Do you see any offers here that you plan on taking advantage of?
