100,000 British Airways Chase Card, $75 fee per year (DEAD)

In this post, I will detail a public offer and an alternative offer of 100k British Airways Avios. I will point out the differences and which card I would like to recommend.

Wonder what to do if you have 100,000 British Airline Avios points,

  1. The Point Guy has a great summary of all of the British Airline Redemption option
  2. One Mile at a Time has a post about Redeeming British Airways Avios points for travel on Iberia without fuel surcharges!
  3. One Mile at a Time again wrote about How to use British Airways Avios points for travel on Aer Lingus (and avoid fuel surcharges)
Have fun with these special British Airline offers

Here is a public offer from British Airways Chase Credit Card

EARN UP TO 100,000 BONUS AVIOS POINTS*

  • You will get 50,000 bonus Avios after your first use of the card
  • 25,000 bonus Avios after you make $10,000 in purchases within the first year of account opening
  • Plus an additional 25,000 bonus Avios after you make an additional $10,000 in purchases also within the first year of account opening

It literally means you need to spend $20,000 in the first year to obtain 100,000 British Airways Avios miles. I think it is very difficult for most people to achieve that.

Fortunately, there is an alternative 100,000 British Airways Chase Card discovered by some members of FlyerTalk. This offer gives you all of the benefits you can receive from the public British Airways one except in the way your sign-up bonus will be awarded.

The Offer is:

    • Get 50K miles on 1st purchase and pay $75 fee for the first year
    • On the first year anniversary get the other 50K at $75 fee to pay for the second year annual fee

With this offer you can easily obtain 100k British Airways Avios and pay $150 fees. The tricks to get this offer is to go to British Airways website to do a dummy booking

    • Step 1: search for a ticket from JFK to London
    • Step 2: select any flight and press continue
    • Step 3: enter your personal information
    • Step 4: you should be able to see this deal’s image

Then select the option “pay for this flight using my new card” by clicking “apply now”, and proceed to the application.

After you fill-out the credit card application form, you would know if you get approved instantly or get an answer via mail. If you don’t get approved instantly, call Chase at

800-436-7927 – Application Status (automated)
888–609–7805 – Application Status (human)
888-245-0625 – Reconsideration line

There is nothing in the application approving the ticket purchase so don’t worry. The application gets approved/denied regardless of whether you go back and finish the purchase or not. Tips of how to use British Airways Avios will be available soon.

Disclaimer: I don’t receive anything from Chase or British Airways. I am writing about their offers because I believe they are pretty decent and a lot of my readers can take advantage of their redemption opportunities.
