BA Are offering DOUBLE AVIOS Points for travellers who are based in the Middle East/GCC countries.
See link for all details and Ts and Cs4 Sep 2012
(Update: This promo ended July 17th. I see this as a two-tiered promo: 50,000 points easy and the remaining 50k is harder to get, but you can also apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card which offers 40,000 bonus points which convert to 40,000 British Airways miles. You may consider paying your taxes with credit card.)
The Chase British Airways Visa Signature® card is offering up to 100,000 British Airways (BA) Avois points for new cardmembers, broken down as following:
•50,000 BA Avios points with first purchase of any amount,
•25,000 BA Avios points after $10,000 in purchases within the first year of account opening, and
•25,000 BA Avios points after an additional $10,000 in purchases, also within the first year of account opening
Redeem Avios points for business class to Europe. Since business class is so expensive, but the flight across the Atlantic is so long, redeeming points for business class tickets can be a good value as well. The taxes are still there, but they are a much smaller proportion and your trip will be so much more comfortable and truly an experience.
