BA’s shopping portal is now offering new Airbnb hosts 8,000 Avios after earning their first $300. To qualify, hosts must be charging at least $100 per night; otherwise they’ll receive a lower reward, BA says. Note that the $300 doesn’t include guest fees and taxes.
Forget about this deal for listings in Miami or on the Big Island of Hawaii, since both have regulations that restrict short-term rentals in residential zones. The deal is also no good if your first booking comes via a referral or you have a listing that has already been booked or is active.
New Airbnb hosts can also earn 6,000 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles after creating a listing and earning their first $300 by hosting guests. The new listings must be created by clicking through the Shop Now button. Like the BA deal, listings can’t be located in the Miami area and on the Island of Hawaii, and the $300 earnings excludes guest fees and taxes.
