The bonus for the British Airways Visa Signature Card has been upgraded, now new cardholders are can earn 120,000 Avios during the first year they have their card. In order to earn these Avios, they will have to charge $30,000 to their card during that year. This upgrade gives new cardholders 20,000 additional Avios because in the past they were offering new cardholders 100,000 Avios.
How does this work? Cardholders earn four points per dollar on all purchases during the first year they have the card until they hit 120,000 Avios. After that point, people earn 3 Avios per dollar spent when booking flights with British Airways, as well as Aer Lingus, Iberia, and LEVEL. And on all other purchases, they earn 1 Avios per dollar they spend.
British Airways is a partner in the Oneworld airline alliance, so when it's time to redeem their Avios cardholders can book flights with any of the airlines in the alliance.
