British Airways Avios miles can be used to book award tickets on American Airlines. These are valuable miles ~Miles the Monster
One thing I love about earning miles is when opportunities come along where I’m able to earn a bonus on top of something I was already going to purchase anyways. Today’s deal involves groceries from Safeway. Now Safeway’s aren’t in every state and there very well may not be one located near you so this deal won’t be available to everyone.
First, if you don’t have a British Airways Executive Club account – Sign up for one here.
Next visit the BA Shopping portal at http://www.shopping.ba.com/
Search for Safeway and you should come up with the following screen:
The special is only available to first time customers on their first order. If you spend more than $50 you get free shipping. The great thing about British Airways Avios miles is their program allows you to have household accounts so you can pool your miles from up to 6 people. A husband and wife could simply create accounts and get 2,000 Avios miles out of this deal. Not bad for groceries you were going to buy anyways. You can also check out the promo codes at www.retailmenot.com to sweeten the deal even more. Plus you don’t have to haul all those groceries in.
Still have sour feelings about the Revolution? Not really interested in fly to London? What’s great about British Airways is the fact that they partner with good ol’ American Airlines. Short haul flights can be booked for as low as 4500 Avios miles. Check out how many Avios you’ll need for your trip here.
Sample 4500 one-way trips:
Phoenix – Los Angeles
Sioux Falls – Chicago
Los Angles – San Francisco
Combine this with the current 36 British Airways Avios per dollar spent at Nordstroms and you could easily have a free short-haul roundtrip.
