Shopping portals can be a great way to maximize the miles & points you can earn, as they let you earn bonus points for purchases you’d make anyway. I always like to share any lucrative shopping portal bonuses that I think people could benefit from.
If you have any big online purchases coming up, you may be able to benefit from this offer from British Airways. The British Airways Avios eStore will be offering double Avios with all retailers for purchases made between Friday, February 23, and Sunday, February 25, 2018.
British Airways offered a similar promotion last year, and in many cases this made for some lucrative points earning opportunities. There’s both a US and UK version of the shopping mall, so people on both sides of the pond can take advantage of this opportunity.
While the exact earnings rates haven’t yet been published, you should be able to get a sense of what the rates will be based on doubling what you’re seeing right now. It’s possible that British Airways will adjust some of the points earning rates prior to the promotion going live, and there could also be some excluded retailers, so we’ll have to wait for the full details of that. There are quite a few attractive opportunities to earn Avios, and those will only get better once this promotion goes live.
So if you have any online shopping you need to do and then British Airways eStore looks like it may have lucrative earning rates, it could make sense to hold off a few days.
