British Airways, Use 5K Avios for $100 Discount

British Airways has a promotion ending tonight that can get you a value of 2 cents for Avios points. Here’s how it works. You will only need to exchange 5,000 Avios to get $100 off per person on any transatlantic round-trip flight to London or Europe in World Traveller (economy) or World Traveller Plus (premium economy), when you travel before December 31, 2019. What’s more, you can enjoy the $100 saving per person on your booking (up to nine people). Meaning a family of four can save $400 on round-trip flights to London or Europe with 20,000 Avios. You simply need 5000 Avios for each person on your booking.
