For a limited time, British Airways is offering double Avios (or more) on purchases through its online shopping portal, the eStore.

To be eligible, you must be a member of the British Airways Executive Club. The offer ends on Dec. 22, with some retailers continuing the offer beyond that date. To take advantage, head to the eStore, where you will be asked to sign in using your BA Executive Club membership number. Once in the portal, make sure all purchases are made directly through the page that opens after clicking on the retailer of your choice.

Aside from travel rewards credit cards and earning Avios through flying, shopping portals are some of the best and easiest ways to rack up points fast. For example, with the current deal, 4 Avios per dollar on a $1,000 Apple product would mean 4,000 Avios, worth $60 based on TPG’s latest valuations.

Some of the better offers include Macy’s (7 Avios per dollar), Bed Bath and Beyond (8 Avios per dollar) and Neiman Marcus (12 Avios per dollar).

The terms and conditions state that all Avios will be added to your account within 35 days of the date of purchase (90 to 120 days of your stay for a hotel purchase). If items are canceled or returned, Avios will not be awarded. The offer applies to participating retailers only, and before making your purchase, be sure to read the terms for each merchant — often times, gift cards and certain other items won’t count toward earning bonuses.
