Just a friendly reminder that today is the last day to apply for the 100,000 mile Chase British Airways Visa. Even if it takes a couple days to approve your application, as long as you apply today, you will be eligible for the 100,000 miles.

Even if you have several other Chase cards, you are eligible for the 100k miles as long as you haven’t gotten the BA card in the past. Chase has been very flexible with approving these cards – even if you are declined, you can call back and ask to move around other credit lines in order to get the BA card approved.  If you have any unanswered questions, please feel free to comment below.

Key details of the card:
-You earn 1.25 BA miles per dollar spent, that’s 25% more miles than most cards
No foreign transaction fees
-Super valuable companion ticket when you spend $30,000 in a calendar year
-BA miles can be redeemed for travel on American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Qantas, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Lan, Iberia, Finn Air,  S7, Malev, Royal Jordanian, Kingfisher and Aer Lingus.
-BA allows one-way awards, so if you have existing American miles, you can use AA Miles for one way and BA miles for the other
-BA allows Household Accounts, so you can pool the miles of everyone in your family
-BA allows unlimited en-route stopovers on awards
