British Airways & American Express offer cardholders to earn tier points on spending

Cardmembers can also earn a Companion Voucher when they spend £10,000 each Cardmembership year on their Card.

British Airways takes next step towards developing sustainable aviation fuel

For the first time ever, British Airways Executive Club members who use the British Airways American Express® Premium Plus Card to make purchases can now earn Tier Points outside of flying.

This offer, which is valid through May 21, 2024, allows eligible card members to earn an additional 200 Tier Points in the upcoming months just by making purchases with their Card. Travellers can obtain airline status with the aid of Tier Points, and this status is linked to benefits like priority boarding, fast-track security, lounge access, and additional luggage allowance.


From today, British Airways American Express Premium Plus Cardmembers will be eligible to earn up to 200 Tier Points as follows:

  • 100 Tier Points if the Cardmember spends £15,000
  • A further 50 additional Tier Points will be awarded if they spend a further £5,000 (totalling £20,000)
  • A final 50 Tier Points will be awarded if they spend another £5,000 (totalling £25,000)

Cardmembers need to enrol in their online account for the offer (enrollment closes on May 20, 2024). Spending must occur after a Cardmember enrols and by May 21, 2024, the offer’s expiration date, in order to qualify.

In order for travellers to achieve British Airways Bronze, Silver, or Gold status, these Tier Points will be added to the Tier Points they have already earned or will earn from flying. Travel benefits associated with each tier status are significant and include:

  • Bronze – requires 300 Tier Points – benefits include free seat selection seven days before flying, priority boarding, the use of business class check in desks and more*
  • Silver – requires 600 Tier Points – benefits include access to airport lounges in the UK and around the world, free seat selection at booking, additional baggage and more*
  • Gold – requires 1,500 Tier Points – benefits include access to First lounges, First class check in and boarding, free seat selection at booking, additional baggage, additional reward flight availability and more*
