As promised, the British Airways Avios eStore has launched their double points shopping weekend where you can earn lots of British Airways Avios for your online purchases while still scooping up some of those winter clearance deals that are popping up!
This “Double Avios” weekend kicked off today and runs from February 23 – February 25, 2018. Not all of the retailers are double what they were a few days ago, but many of them are indeed doubled. Below are some example Avios payouts that should be valid through Sunday.
- Apple 4x
- Kiehl’s 16x
- LL Bean 8x
- Walmart 8x (lower rate on Electronics, Video Games, Movies, Music, Books, and Photo)
- Home Depot 6x
- Target 4x
- Sam’s Club 8x
- Etsy 8x
- Pottery Barn 12x
- Columbia 16x
- Sephora 10x
- 1-800-PetMeds 20x
- eBags 20x
- New Balance 20x
- Ugg 18x
Retailers such as Apple, Walmart, Target, and Home Depot rarely go above 1 or 2 miles per dollar on any of the airline shopping sites, so those are very strong earning rates. On top of these payouts, you can also stack a 1,000 Avios bonus if you have a British Airways Visa Signature credit card!
Remember that even if you don’t fly British Airways with regularity, their Avios points are very valuable if you fly their partners such as American or Alaska (or even Virgin America!), as they use a distance based award chart that means you can book those partners starting at just 7,500 Avios each way. Do you plan to earn a bunch of British Airways Avios for your online purchases this weekend?
