Chase British Airways: 100,000 Point Bonus After $5,000 In Spend (Aer Lingus & Iberia Added)

Update 7/1/21: These offers have officially launched.

Update 6/14/21: Same offer is now available for Aer Lingus & Iberia cards. Offers will ‘officially’ launch on July 1.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Chase is offering 100,000 points after $5,000 within the first three months on Chase British Airways card

Card Details

  • $95 annual fee not waived first year
  • Chase’s 5/24 rule does apply to this card.
  • Card earns at the following rates (first $30,000 in the first year will earn 5x points per $1 spent):
    • Earns 3 Avios per $ on British Airways purchases
    • Earns 1 Avios per $ on all other purchases
  • As a general rule, Chase does match offers.

Our Verdict

This offer is significantly better than the 120,000 point offer and 100,000 point offers due to fact this only requires $5,000 in spend rather than $20,000 or $30,000 in spend. Not sure where this link was originally found, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see it pulled sooner rather than later. Seems like a fantastic deal so if you have a use of British Airways Avios and are under 5/24 then I’d recommend applying now (although not as good as the Chase Sapphire Preferred in branch bonus). Will be adding this to our best credit card bonus page.

Signed up this morning. 4/24, 800+, auto approval (I have 3 other chase cards currently). Looking forward to a lot of AA short/med haul international flights for free. 🙂

For anyone who has recently gotten the bonus on this card, do you remember when they posted to BA? Chase sent Avios but they are not showing up at BA. Was it two days after statement close? A week? Thanks in advance.

I have the similar problem (I applied Chase Iberia). Chase said they have transferred the points but I can’t find it in my Iberia account. May I ask how long you received the points in your BA account?

DP: 4/24, 800+, applied and went to pending. Received an email two days later saying I had been approved. Did not call in.

Does Chase usually eventually open referral offers to match best public offers?

CC Promo Offers

yes except for the Marriott so far

Quick data point for the good of the community…P3 applied Jul 7. Response was “approval pending”. P3 called in to credit card app status phone # mid July and spoke to a human. Card was approved a day after the phone call. I have my own question…if you use this BA Aviso Chase card to book hotels via Expedia and choose the option to pay directly to the hotel upon arrival (rather than prepayment), do you receive the 3X bonus category (2X after year 1).? If nobody knows, I’ll be the guinea pig and report back. One final thought…the $200 credit 3X per yr on this card for award taxes on BA biz class to London (from the US) seems pretty interesting. I don’t see many comments about it, but for some of us that perk could be one of the most underrated features available on a $95 annual fee card.

Wait till you find out how much the surcharge on award travel to the UK is. Hint: it’s over $1k. Nobody talks about it because award travel on BA to the UK isn’t worth it because of the ridiculous taxes and fees. The good uses of Avios don’t qualify for the $200 credit.

Ah I see your point…Next summer looks like Avios award taxes are about $730 in Business one way and for Prem Econ taxes are about $280 one way. I guess the $100 credit to use your BA Chase card to pay taxes on awards in prem econ is the sensible thing to do …if you can fly during daytime hours.
