HOT! Book A Round-Trip Business Class Ticket From The US To London For $440+30K Avios And Get Rebated Back 12K Or Possibly 37K Avios…

167

Update 3: Fares have gone up by $400.

Update 2: And we’re booked πŸ˜€

$1,784+120K BA Avios out of pocket.

Hopefully will be get 100K AA miles or BA Avios from the promotion, plus 41.5K base miles, plus 5.3K for purchasing the tickets=146.8K miles rebated.

Valuing the extra 26.8K miles rebated at $455 that means 4 business class seats cost a total of $1,329 or $332 per round-trip ticket!

Update: The price has dropped even further! This deal is valid from Chicago, NYC, Los Angeles, and more cities!

Well this is getting almost too good to be true.

Earlier today I posted how to get business class fares from many US cities to London for just $1,083 round-trip, so read that post first.

An eagle-eye commenter noted that on the page after selecting flight you can also use 30K Avios to knock down the fare to just $440:

ba17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That is a promotion called Avios part-payment.

You can’t use the 10% off Chase Visa code together with Avios part-payment. But that means you can book travel on American’s 77W aircraft.

According to BA it’s a regular cash booking that also earns Avios for the flight. It’s not considered a redemption like using straight Avios or Avios+Cash which is subject to award availability.

That means you’ll get 10,379 Avios for flying JFK-London round-trip.

Plus if you fly by 01/31 you can register here to earn an additional 25K bonus Avios.

Or you can register here for 25K bonus AA miles.

I can’t guarantee the 25K promotion will work with Avios part-payment, but I’m not seeing any reason why it wouldn’t.

Plus of course you’ll earn triple miles on the fare by using a card like the Chase British Airways Visa or the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold CardΒ orΒ theΒ AMEX Business Gold Rewards Card.

In total the cost of the business class round-trip would be 30K Avios plus $440, but you should get back 10,379 base Avios+25K bonus Avios+1,920 Avios for the airfare=37,299 Avios.

In other words you’ll pay $440 and get back a net refund of 7,299 Avios…assuming that the 25K promotion works out.

But even if it doesn’t, the net will be just $440 and 18K Avios for a round-trip business class fare. And that’s a fantastic deal!

Cancellations are permitted within 24 hours for free over the phone. After 24 hours the fee is a whopping $500 per ticket.

What fare class?

Dan

@EJB:
I class for this fare.

e

any deals with this to israel?

flying

is this offer only for business class? or i can benefit from this offer for economy too?

Luckyluck

And now that you don’t use the 10% off will that work on AA flights too?

High end hobo

Dan you doing this?
Since when was avios part payment so lucrative?
Ba to city airport in a a318 would be kinda cool

abka

What are cancellation policies?

yudi

What about if I wanna continue afterwards to Israel, can I book together or I need to make another separate itinire, and will have to claim my baggage in London then?

Abka

“The first departure date is outside the valid departure dates for CARDOFFERU” ?

Anonymous

@Dan:

Darn, if it were anything else I’d credit it to AA and get 45k AAdvantage for JFK-LHR (due to the AA longhaul bonus)

abka

My result was:
1 Adult $638.00 taxes, fees and surcharges: $1,166.35 Total price* $1,804.35. What am I doing wrong? Your example is also showing a total of $1,404.35 after tax.

moko

Can you get AA EQP for flying business ? or it wont apply ?

Anonymous

@abka: AARP Discount

ben

Not getting the option to use that many avios. 7500 max

sam

Does AARP have any other serious benefit?

ben

nevermind, now i’m getting the option if its BA metal only

pointer

The real question is how to get an upgrade to first…….i heard their first = biz class……

YMW

@Dan:
I class should give 1.5 EQP on AA

Rileywiles23

Can I book the ticket using my BA aarp account for somebody else, and still get the discount ?

Reddy

I booked the tickets for my wife and daughter(3yrs) and my daughter will not travel outbound i.e. IAH to LHR, will there be penalty for not showing up as when I try to book oneway i.e. LHR-IAH it is not giving this promo price.

Anonymous

These should also be upgradable to first for like 18k avios also, right?

Meir

@Rileywiles23:
Yes, just booked a friend to PHL-MAN with the $400 discount even thought he is flying by himself

pointer

If it’s upgradable, I’,m in……..

rediplus

why anyone would bother with this when for a few more miles and some fuel surcharges you can go on Singapore Suites to Frankfurt..availability might be tough but i’m sure it beats the miles and cost hands down

Anonymous

@Dan:
@YMW:
OK I just saw the other post, so you can get 10353 AA EQP

mocha

code coming up as invalid for summerÒ€¦.i see travel dates are November 1, 2014 Γ’β‚¬β€œ March 31, 2016 for code

LAX-LHR is showing up for only $448.69, plus 30k Avios. Wow!

hvaces42

I just paid 892 for 2 passengers plus 60k Avios.

tony c

@dan, when I put in more than 1 passenger, it raises it to full price. did you see that?

Abka

@rediplus: What good is your flight to Franfurt if you need to be in London?

Reuvenhunt

Does the fare vary by date of travel or should all dates within the promotional period be identical?

Luckyluck

@Luckyluck: looks like it’s working on AA too. Which business class is better?

pointer

Dan: Anyway to upgrade (after confirmed booking) to First with Avios?

not working

@why is it only discounting me $15 for using 13,290 Avios, not giving me other options

ed

Any idea on date that work for NYC-Lon? Not finding much…

tym2trvl

@Dan I am trying to book from MCO and i am only getting 7500 points

turgutbey

Trying to book from SEA and it will only let me use 15,000 avios for a $150 discount.

@Reddy: they will cancel her entire itinerary as its considered a no show. You cannot miss any part of the itinerary.

turgutbey

Trying to book SEA-LHR on BA site and max discount is 15,000 avios for $150.

Is there some trick to get the higher available discount?

isaac

y???

Dan

@turgutbey:
Seems like it only works from some cities, like JFK, ORD, and LAX.
Maybe book a sep Avios ticket SEA-LAX?

Anonymous

can I cancel these???

jlr4travel

Hey Dan,

I started off searching JFK and the higher 30k Avios / $674 off option was available. Now it appears its capped at $75 off worth of Avios. Maybe it’s the dates but I’ve checked several city pairs and seeing same cap.

Anyone else have sample dates that work?

Saagar

Will this work on OpenSkies to Paris?

Meir

I can not verify my AARP membership…. Any ideas why it is not working??

Am I the only one having trouble with the “verify membership” page? I have an AARP account and have logged in but whenever I click verify it just refreshes the page… not sure what to do!

@Zipped: I tried on BA website. Seems to depend which cities.

Julien

Hey Dan – Do you recommend BA’s A380 biz class product over AA’s 777?

alyssa t KAPLAN

booked 5 tickets r/t to london using 150,000 avios for $1,000!

Kira

Nice, has the itinerary to be roundtrip? Can I do multicity (open-jaw) and still get that discount, say JFK-LHR, but LHR-SFO when back (open-jaw)? Also, may I add a connection flight from regional airport, say GSO-CLT-LHR ? Thanks.

alyssa t KAPLAN

they do not hit you fees after you book the ticket?

kollel youngerman

If anyone can help by allowing me to use their memebership (my avios and credit card of course) please please call me at 347-948-4986 Thank you!

Dan i booked the flight and i registered for AA.
how does AA know that i fly to London on BA?

JEREMY

I BOOKED ALREADY SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH DAN BUT I DONT HAVE ANOTHER 60k MILES (2 TICKETS) IN MY ACCOUNT, SINCE WITHIN 24 HOURS, SHOULD I REBOOK? TO SAVE THE EXTRA AND GET IT FOR THE 332 INSTEAD? I CAN SEARCH FOR IT AGAIN TO SEE IF IT WOULD BE AVAILABLE THEN CANCEL AND REBOOK RIGHT? WILL MILES BE REDEPOSITED IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE THEY WERE DEDUCTED IMMEDIATELY AFTER I BOOKED.

THANK YOU

Tj

How do I proceed for an infant?

Saagar

I went to AARP website and used the portal through AARP website and it didn’t require verification. Just click AARP Discounts, find the BA discount, and click through the links. I booked family of 4 in June for $1800 + 120k Avios in Biz.

Can I use AA Advantage miles to book this?

Eli5757

@Dan
If I book American Airlines flights and use my British Airways Credit Card do I still get x3 Points?

Also do I have to Register for the extra 25k points before I book the flight?

I made my wife a BA account just now and tried registering her but it said she is not qualified.

Dan

@shragi:
No, once you have AARP you can book anyone.

@Eli B:
No.

@Eli5757:
Yes.
No, she can enroll in the AA promotion.

uncommonsensical

booked iah-lhr already. can’t figure out how to get any other combo to work. every date i try from SFO or LAX doesn’t work and any flight from IAH to any other European destination (ie: MAD, VIE, etc) gets an error saying BA doesn’t fly from IAH- ___ i see plenty of people getting other itineraries, so… what am I doing wrong?!?

shragi

@eli it only works for existing members i tried doing that for my mother and it did not work

Yes.

@Dan:
booking a regular seat isn’t free. it will run another $440 plus miles.
how do I add him for 10% of what I paid?

Anonymous

@dan
now that i already decided not to put in baby and put in the last name, should i call them up to change with 24 hours? or should i just wait until the “mazal tov”?
I am trying to book a new ticket (with baby in own seat)(and then cancel the old) but prices jumped back up πŸ™
THANK YOU

Dan_Fan

Dan, I did find the AA link and registered my kids. Now, will the promo work if I make the reservation thru the BA website? Thanks!

Dan

@tj:
Call.
But it’s not $440 plus miles if you get back the miles…

Either way, don’t you value not having to hold the infant at something?

@Anonymous:
You can call and ask what they suggest.

@Dan_Fan:
I’m hoping it will. At this point it’s hard to say anything definitive about the promo though.

@dan
i am flying after the 25k promotion ends so not really worth to buy baby own seat…

Having problems with AARP website. Tries to verify membership and won’t do anything else. Seems stuck on that page and won’t allow me access to deal even though I am a member and logged in. Anyone else having problems?

Help me!

Hi,
So I have 2 bookings to London for april, we Bh had a baby a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to add the baby but they said it’s 10% of a current fare which would be around $450! So my infant without a seat would cost more than my seat!?
Is there anyway around this?
