For this week’s Thursday Giveaway, we’re offering a chance to win 20,000 British Airways Avios, in honor of the new 100,000-Avios offer for the British Airways Visa Signature Card. BA Executive Club is a great frequent flyer program because of its flexibility — especially for US domestic flights on American Airlines. For a complete breakdown of how to earn the maximum sign-up bonus, see the table below:

Spend $2k within 3 months $10k within first year $20k within first year $30k in calendar year
Earn 50,000 Avios 25,000 Avios 25,000 Avios Travel Together Ticket

Maximizing Avios can you get you some amazing redemptions. TPG values Avios at 1.6 cents per point, so there’s a decent value to be found with them. Even if you aren’t reaching the upper spending requirement to get the full 100k, the lower bonuses are still enough for good redemptions. Domestic flights of less than 650 miles cost 4,500 miles each, meaning you could get 11 one-way flights and still have some left over points.

Alternatively, if you’re going for the full 100k bonus, you have even more options. For example, that amount could get you a one-way trip in British Airways first class between San Diego and London for 85,000 Avios + $479. Of course there’s a huge co-pay when you’re flying long-haul on British Airways due to very high taxes and surcharges, but you’ll still save a bundle over a revenue ticket.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm EST on Monday, September 21, 2015.
