I just posted about British Airways being added as a Membership Rewards partner. While their frequent flier program is anything but great in general, here’s one heck of a deal, as Martin pointed out in the comments section of the last post:
“In honor of this new partnership, you can receive 5,000 bonus BA Miles when you transfer Membership Rewards® points to British Airways before January 31, 2010. You must be enrolled in the British Airways Executive Club in order to participate in this offer, visit http://www.ba.com to enroll. Bonus Miles will be awarded by February 28, 2010. One bonus per Cardmember. Taxes, fees, charges & surcharges, including airline surcharged, apply.”
This won’t be worth it if you’re just now starting with Executive Club, but if you have 100,000+ plus miles with them it absolutely is. Unfortunately it looks like there’s only one bonus per cardmember, so I couldn’t transfer 1,000 miles to my Executive Club account, 1,000 miles to my brother’s executive club account, etc.
