British Airways and Chase Card Services have enhanced the rewards program for the British Airways Visa Signature card, allowing cardmembers to earn more mileage points for every dollar they spend.

The benefits include a 25 per cent increase in the number of BA miles earned and a companion redemption voucher for a trans-Atlantic flight, awarded to cardmembers who spend $30,000 per calendar year.


In addition, new cardmembers will receive a bonus 100,000 BA Miles. The enhanced card proposition is managed by The Mileage Company, operator of British Airways BA Miles rewards, in partnership with Chase Card Services.

The new enhanced benefits of the British Airways Visa Signature Card include:

● An improved mileage-point earning rate of 1.25 BA miles for every $1 spent and 2.5 BA Miles for every $1 spent on British Airways travel and vacation packages, an increase of 25 per cent  from the previous offer;

● A companion redemption voucher reward when cardmembers spend $30,000 a year. Cardmembers redeeming BA Miles for a British Airways flight in any cabin class will receive a flight for a companion in the same class. The companion redemption voucher is valid for two years;

● A bonus 100,000 BA Miles for existing US British Airways Executive Club members and new card holders approved for the card.  Cardmembers receive 50,000 BA Miles after their first purchase, and they receive another 50,000 miles after they spend at least $2,000 in the first three months. The 100,000 BA Miles is equivalent to the redemption value of two round trip transatlantic reward flights or four domestic round-trip tickets; and

● Each new cardholder automatically becomes a member of the British Airways Executive Club and can earn more BA Miles through partners such as Avis, Marriott, Hilton and E-stores and by taking up offers from British Airways and oneworld alliance partners such as AmericanAirlines.

The British Airways Executive Club is a global frequent flyer scheme, with most BA Miles collected by flying with British Airways or oneworld alliance and partner airlines on selected fares. Scheme members can also top up their miles by purchasing them or collecting on everyday spending and travel. By collecting BA Miles, members can use them for ‘reward flights’ to any destination in British Airways’ worldwide network, as well as on the flights of partner and oneworld alliance airliness uch as American Airlines, Cathay, Qantas and Iberia.

BA Miles can also be used for cabin upgrades to World Traveller Plus, Club Europe, Club World and First. The British Airways Executive Club features a tier system, with members moving between tiers depending on the frequency, cabin class and distance they fly with British Airways.

Members can collect miles by staying at selected hotels, using BA Miles’ car rental partners and shopping online with more than 120 retailers at the BA Miles eStore. For more information, visit www.ba.com.
