British Airways Card: 50,000 Bonus Avios


This is one of the best cards for flying short-haul on American Airlines!

Brad's Deals Editor Mark,


Earn 50,000 bonus Avios after you spend $3,000 on purchases with the first 3 months of account opening of the Chase British Airways Visa Signature® Card. Earn an additional 25,000 bonus Avios after you spend $10,000 on purchases, and then another 25,000 bonus Avios after you spend another $10,000 on purchases within your first year of account opening, for a total of 100,000 Avios. Every calendar year you make $30,000 in purchases on your British Airways Visa card, you’ll earn a Travel Together Ticket good for two years. And, you'll earn 3 Avios miles per dollar on British Airways purchases, and 1 mile per dollar on everything else. There's a $95 annual fee for this card. Using the card's built-in Smart Chip Technology, fraud protection is easy when traveling abroad, which is nice because the card has no foreign transaction fees. Avios miles are valuable because their award chart is distance-based- you can really save on short-haul American Airlines redemptions in the US.
