The Deal

  • A new targeted Amex Offer is out that is good for $300 back when you spend $2,000 or more in one or more purchases online at britishairways.com, though note that flights must originate in the US and be charged in US Dollars to qualify per the terms. Enrollment is required.

Key Terms

  • Valid until 11/11/23
  • Offer valid only on flights booked directly with British Airways online at US website britishairways.com, through British Airways US app or by phone at 1-800-247-9297.
  • Flights must originate in the US; including US territories, and be charged in USD to qualify.
  • Offer valid on flights only.
  • Excludes purchases made through partner sites, agents, affiliates, and third parties.
  • Excludes tickets purchased in-person at airport ticket offices.
  • Offer is non-transferable.
  • Valid only on purchases made in US dollars.

Quick Thoughts

This offer could be useful whether you’re booking a cash ticket or an award ticket so long as you are departing the US or US territories and the price is being charged in US Dollars. Since the terms don’t specify that it is only valid on British Airways flights, I think this should work even if you’re booking partner awards through BritishAirways.com so long as you are departing the US (since I think you’ll need to be departing the US or a US territory for the site to charge you in US Dollars).

Perhaps most exciting would be if you are able to find a great deal on a business class cash fare and you are an AARP member since you’ll need to book at BritishAirways.com to take advantage of the AARP discount. I know that some readers have likely signed up for AARP (anyone can join, you don’t need to be a senior citizen), and this could make for a good stack.

Has anyone tried this with a Avios flight? Trying to book flights for 2 from the US to Edinburgh then London back to the US.

I can lower the Avios amount to pay almost exactly $2,000 cash.

Problem is that I can’t book a multi-city flight in the Avios redemption site so I’d have to book the flights separately and the return flight obviously wouldn’t originate in the US but I’d be charged in USD.

[…] American Express offers has an offer for $300 back on $2,000 or more in airfare at British Airways for flights originating in the US through November 11. Gamable? Yes. (Thanks to FM) […]

I’m wondering whether they actually check if the flight is originating from the states. I think a USD charge from BA suffices.


You’ll get charged in local currency if you don’t originate in the US.


Not true, I actually just booked yesterday HEL-LHR using Avios and the taxes were charged in USD with “British Airways US Direct” listed as the merchant.


Are you going to have $2000 worth of taxes? Even on BA, that’s going to be hard. So most likely you’ll buy a cash fare. In my experience (at least with SkyTeam), I get charged in local currency, or at least EUR in non-EUR European countries.
