Update: The current sign-up bonus offer for the British Airways Visa is 50,000 Avios. 25,000 upon first use, and another 25,000 when you spend $2,500 within 90 days.
I know a lot of you were able to get in on the amazing 100,000 mile BA Visa bonus, so I wanted to let you know of a benefit that seems to have gone unnoticed.
When you book a British Airways flight using your BA Visa through this site, you get $50 off the roundtrip.
“*$50 discount valid on qualifying round-trip British Airways published fares purchased at www.britishairways.com/get50 only beginning March 23, 2009. British Airways reserves the right to revoke this offer at any time. Maximum ticket validity of one year for any ticket purchased between these dates. Fares not purchased at www.britishairways.com/get50 do not qualify. Discount is not valid for flights on code share or franchise carriers. $50 discount will appear during fare quote of the purchasing process, before payment. Open jaw bookings are eligible for only one discount. Full government fees and taxes will apply for fare purchased. All rules of fare purchased apply, including advance purchase, minimum stay, weekend-add ons, and cancellation/refund rules. Valid for new bookings only made by U.S. residents paying in USD using a valid British Airways Visa Signature card for travel commencing from the US. Refunds from previously purchased fare types not permitted. Discount not combinable with any other offer and is taken off the airfare only.

Seems like a pretty good deal. Has anyone ever taken advantage of this offer?
Tip of the hat to TPG reader David for this one!
