Chase is offering a short term promotion for their British Airways Visa card. They are offering 50,000 Avios as a first purchase bonus. You can get another 25,000 Avios when spending $10,000 on the card within the first year, and 25,000 Avios more for a total of 100,000 Avios when you finish a total of $20,000 in spending. This means that one credit card can give 100,000 avios if you do it right. Time is really running out as the offer is ending on July 18th. You might ask yourself these questions…
- Would I fly quite a few short distances on American Airlines or Alaska Airlines?
- Am I thinking about hitting up South America by flying on LAN?
- Can I really spend $10,000 a year on this card? How about $20,000 in one calendar year? If not, would you be ok with the 50,000 Avios after the first purchase?
- Am I interested in taking my family somewhere in the US on AA or Alaska?

These offers seem to get harder and harder to come by. They are making them less and less profitable. If any of these trips is a viable option for you, then consider making the leap and getting the British Airways 100,000 credit card offer from Chase.
