Earn 12x Avios For Apple Purchases

Filed Under: British Airways, Great Deals

Online shopping portals can be a great way to pick up additional miles & points for purchases you’d make anyway. Just for following a specific link you can earn bonus points in addition to the ones you’d earn for credit card spending. Whenever I make an online purchase I always check to see which shopping portal has the best bonus.

Apple is a retailer that generally doesn’t discount much, though at the moment there’s an opportunity to earn bonus points for Apple purchases. This is one of the best shopping portal offers I ever recall seeing for Apple purchases.

Through Saturday, August 24, 2019, the British Airways Avios eStore is offering 12x Avios per dollar spent with Apple.

There are some terms associated with this, though.

This reward is valid for the following purchases:

Stated reward is for purchasing: the new iPad Air, new iPad mini, Mac mini, new MacBook Air, new iMac, new iPad Pro, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, new iPad with support for Apple Pencil, HomePod, new iMac Pro, Apple TV 4K, Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 4, Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, new 9.7-inch iPad (5th Generation), new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad mini 4, new MacBook Pro, iMac with Retina 5k display, Mac mini, iPad Pro, iPad Pro 9.7 inch, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch Series 3, New MacBook, New Mac Pro, Retina 4K 21.5 inch iMac, Retina 5K 27 inch iMac, iMac, new iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch, Beats, Beats X, Accessories, Software, Apple TV (old model) and the new Apple TV.

However, no rewards are given on new products when launched, including the new AirPods or on one-to-one membership, shipping and tax charges, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs, Apple Employee Purchase Programs, iTunes gift cards, Apple gift card purchases, and gift wrap.

There are also the following limits:

Rewards will only be available for up to 2 iPhones and 5 of all other products per order within a 30 days period. Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Apple reserves the final right to refuse rewards should they suspect a transaction being trader’s activity. This applies to all products sold on Apple.

So if you do take advantage of this you’ll want to check all the terms.

Keep in mind that the 12x Avios are in addition to the points you’d usually earn for these purchases using your credit card.

Anyone plan to take advantage of this Apple shopping portal bonus?

(Tip of the hat to Frequent Miler)

  1. I understand that gift cards do not qualify, however what if I make a qualified purchase and I return it, not asking for a refund to the credit card that I used but apply it to a gift card?

  2. Is there a creative way to work-in a trade-in credit with a used iPhone in addition to taking advantage of this bonus?

  3. The British Airways eStore is still trying to deny me the 30,000 Avios for my first hosting of $100 or more with AirBnB, saying that they didn’t have a relationship with AirBnB on June 16 when I clicked through the banner on the BA eStore app to sign up for and list my property. All terms and conditions were met, yet BA refuses to award the Avios. They did the same thing to me and many others two years ago with the March.com promo. I fought with them for 2 months to finally get the 34,185 Avios I had earned. Be careful if you use the Apple promo. If they can find a way to screw you out of the Avios you have earned, they will do it! BA sucks!!!!

    If you return it, you won’t get the Avios points, regardless of what form of payment they refund it to; it’s just treated as a return.

  5. Dang it man! I just bought $2.5k worth of stuff through the Alaska portal for 1 point/$ 2 days back. If only this was there 2 days back I would’ve had enough avios for a domestic F ticket with AA already I think.

  6. Anyone else getting a “page not found” error when they click through and try to log in to shop now? I’m using Internet Explorer. Perhaps they’ve pulled it…?

  7. Anyone know if this would work clicking the link and then changing the country to Canada on Apple? BA links directly to the USA site, and when I land on the USA site it gives me the option to change to Canada…hoping a purchase on the Canadian site would still be tracked.
