It’s time to collect Avios effortlessly
If you’re a British Airways Executive Club Member, you’ll already know about all the benefits that come with Avios. But did you know that collecting those Avios is now even easier? Thanks to a partnership between British Airways and Barclays, you can collect precious Avios when you join Barclays Premier Banking and opt in to Barclays Avios Rewards. That means British Airways Executive Club Members can get closer to their next dream destination every single month. (If you’re not yet a Member, it’s never too late to join – simply sign up here.)
Signing up is easy
Maybe you collect Avios for a long-haul bucket list holiday. Perhaps you collect them for a last-minute whirlwind city break or to treat yourself to a flight upgrade or hotel stay. Whatever the reason, more Avios gives you more freedom to explore and enjoy the world.
And now, collecting them is a breeze too with the only UK current account that can collect Avios for you. Just join Barclays Premier Banking1 for free, and opt in to Barclays Avios Rewards (Eligibility, conditions and a £12 monthly fee apply)2. You’ll receive 1,500 Avios every month just for being opted in.
If you’re already a Premier customer or a client with a personal Wealth current account with Barclays, you’ll also receive a joining bonus of 2,500 Avios to welcome you to Avios Rewards. And if you’re a brand new Barclays customer? Complete a full switch using the Current Account Switch Service within three months, and you’ll receive a generous joining bonus of 25,000 Avios.3
We’ve done the maths, and in total that could add up to a whopping 43,000 Avios collected in your first year. That’s enough for two British Airways Euro Traveller return flights to Europe. In other words, simply by opting into Avios Rewards, you and a plus one could be jetting off to the likes of Amsterdam, Geneva or Nice to make memories that last a lifetime.4
