Reward scheme Avios has an increasing relevance to the Malta frequent flyer market, with both British Airways and its sister airline Vueling using them as their mileage currency.
Via e-rewards, you can currently get 2 x 750 Avios for doing very little (not exactly free Avios points, but certainly “minimal effort” Avios points).
Before I go on, I should emphasise that this award does not require you to answer numerous e-rewards surveys in order to reach a redemption threshold. You will get 750 Avios for responding to just one survey, and the full 1500 Avios for responding to just one more. You do not even have to answer the surveys in full – if you get rejected from the full survey, you will still earn the full 750 Avios.
How do I bag the Avios?
Next, using a different email address for both, set up two account with e-rewards as follows:
- Click here to sign up for an Avios e-rewards account.
- Click here to sign up for a BA Executive Club e-rewards account (you need to scroll down the page a bit).
Once you have set up the accounts, you need to respond to one e-rewards survey for each account to get an almost instant 750 Avios bonus (when you have responded to your first survey, click on “Rewards” in your e-rewards account, and you will see an option to redeem 0 points for 750 Avios).
You will need a UK postcode for this to work. If you are not UK based, you can generate a random UK postcode here.
Whether you want to continue to use e-rewards to bolster your Avios balance at a much lower earnings rate than the above, is up to you, but this initial free Avios points bonus is well worth taking advantage of.
