View Full Version : Avios

After over 5 years of silence BA has contacted me to say my remaining points will expire soon. I am still pissed off at them for how poorly they treated me and their complete lack of customer service.

I have no idea if my 7000 remaining points are worth anything but perhaps a charity would be happy to have them.

Any ideas?

The way to upset BA is to use the points..............for something other than BA travel.

Join the Avios scheme (ww.avios.com) - transfer the BA points to Avios. Continue collecting (many options including Tesco and Shell) then spend them on something you want.

Or just earn, use, or buy one, and the clock resets for another 3 years!

It used to be that you could donate BA miles to a charity for flights for seriously ill children etc. However, I cannot find that on the BA site at the moment.

On their own 7k of points is almost pointless (:}) so if you don't want to be bothered, let them go. Otherwise Seer557 has the answer.
