BA – Can I delay claiming my tier pointsBack to Forum
Anonymous12 Oct 2014
I am currently a BA gold member and have already exceeded 1500 tier points to renew my gold membership next May.
I have no interest in earning more tier points to secure a gold upgrade for 2 or other worthless reward, so my question is this…
BA state you can claim air miles and tier points for up to 6 months after you have taken a flight. If I do not enter my executive club number for my bookings between now and April, can I then simply back-claim in my new membership year and enjoy the tier points that usually would have gone to waste?
Any advice will be much appreciated.12 Oct 2014
I can confirm what Senator says. This has happened to me with both Swiss and BA. In each case the miles / points were credited when earned and made no difference to the next year’s qualifying round.12 Oct 2014
Earlier this year I had to put in a claim for Avios and tier points through BA Exec for a flight I took on Cathay Pacific. By the time I received the points and avios I had gone over the end of year, it wouldn’t have made any difference to my status.
When the points and avios were added the points were deducted straight away13 Oct 2014
With Flying Blue (KLM/AF) any points earned over the threshold for tier levels at end of year are carried over to the following year.
For example UK residents need 40,000 tier points for Gold, 70,000 for Platinum, earn 50,000 and you have Gold for following year with 10,000 points already for that years tier points, bit more flexible than BAEC13 Oct 2014
