Earn Double Avios With The British Airways Shopping Portal This Weekend

Filed Under: British Airways, Great Deals

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’re considering making any online purchases this weekend, the British Airways Avios eStore is offering double Avios for purchases made through Sunday, October 7, 2018. This is valid for both their US and UK portals.

When you visit the shopping portal, at the top right you can decide whether to search the US or UK portal. Here’s a listing of retailers based on the number of Avios offered (the first several offer a fixed number of Avios per purchase, but then you get into the retailers that offer a certain number of Avios per dollar spent).

Some retailers are excluded, though there are some nice elevated bonuses, especially when you consider that many of these retailers sell products with fixed pricing (like perfume, skincare, shoes, etc.).

Avios earned through this offer should post to your account within 40 days of when the purchase is made, though in practice will typically post much faster than that.

  1. Annoying to see that this is only for “select retailers,” the site makes the distinction by showing a percent sign (%) for the retailers with special offers. For example I see Apple went from 2-4 avios per dollar while Home Depot is still showing the normal 3 avios per dollar. Very few retailers seem to be included. For cosmetics Neiman Marcus and Kiehls are both offering 12 avios per dollar. Shoes.com is offering 9 avios per dollar. Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Carhartt are offering 8 avios per dollar. Macy’s is offering 6 avios per dollar. That’s about it as far as good deals are concerned.
