Feb 29: Your Last Chance to EuroCheatBack to Forum
Anonymous29 Feb 2012
After you’ve asked your Beau to marry you, don’t forget to log on to your BAEC account and enjoy a sojourn in Europe.
Today is the LAST CHANCE to take advantage of the previously lower tier points thresholds available to those resident in Continental Europe, just 400TPs for Silver and 800TPs for Gold.
If you move today, you’ll be able to retain at what will be your current Euro-elite level for your next two years’ BAEC anniversaries.
So what’s the risk/downside?
Remember, you can’t move back within six months, this isn’t possible with Household accounts and you may lose your ability use your American Express 2for1 voucher, as well as the ability to credit Amex earnings monthly to BAEC.
You’ll also have to deal with the BAEC office in whichever country your account now resides in for BAEC issues, and will have to ensure someone can forward your BAEC card and luggage tags to you.

What VK means, is this is your last chance to Britcheat, by pretending to be based in Europe.
Eurocheat is an offensive word to many of us who live in Europe.29 Feb 2012
Interesting that BA chooses now to report and account through IAG in Euros which is a foreign currency yet classifies UK as outside Europe. Yet Israel and Turkey are classified in Europe accordign to BA. Maybe someone should buy them an Atlas. You’d think one of their pilots would have tipped them off.
So VK can you “cheat” by substituting your UK address in Europe to an ISraeli one not in Europe, in order to qaulify for European rates.29 Feb 2012
I have done this previously. Don’t worry about losing your AMEX BA miles. Whilst I had membership in the Netherlands, the miles simply accrued on a monthly basis and when I changed my membership back to the UK, all the miles and my AMEX voucher were credited.
In addition, you can use an AMEX voucher if you are a non-UK member, but your journey has to start in the UK.
It’s definitely worth doing!29 Feb 2012
