Via View from the Wing, you can get 4500 British Airways Avios for signing up for the Sunday Times travel magazine


Even if you’re a US-based flyer, British Airways Avios are a useful currency to have, because they are oneworld alliance partners with American Airlines and also partner with Alaska Airlines and others.

(SEE ALSO: Introduction to Airline alliances)

While not as useful as they once were (when you could get flights under 650 miles in distance for only 4500 Avios), they still have quite a few uses. I used 25,000 Avios to fly business class from Boston to Dublin (it now costs 37,500 Avios), though my flight ended up being canceled and I was rebooked in economy (and it took 10 months for them to FINALLY refund my Avios)

For more information, see British Airways – good for domestic US travel too!

And of course they are a partner with Chase, so if you have a premium Chase card, you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards into British Airways Avios if you need extra Avios.

4500 Avios for the Sunday Times travel magazine

You can sign up for the Sunday Times Travel magazine here, and you’ll want to use the promo code STTM0916


Absolute cheapest you can get your 4500 Avios would be 30 GBP, though that requires a Direct Debit that many US readers might not have – paying with a credit card would be 32 GBP


That requires a UK address – if you have a US address, it’s 49 GPB, which is about USD$64.

So this is not a screaming good deal, but it can be situationally useful, especially if you actually live in the UK and are interested in the Sunday Times Travel!
