Reason: link updated
The British Airways Visa is offering 50,000 bonus miles after first purchase and 50,000 after spending $2,500 on the card within three months.
According to Gleff: The offer isnít officially set to launch until tomorrow afternoon, thereís no hurry in applying as I understand they intend to run the offer through the month of April. In fact, it may well be a mistake that itís on the BA website so early, as I say I donít think it was supposed to be up yet.
Of course thereís no guarantee itíll last for a month, of course, but you donít need to apply on Wednesday or even this week in order to get the bonus. Just donít let it go for too long as you wonít want to miss out on this.
Programs: Delta DM, SPG Plat, Hyatt Diamond, MTA Rust, Hertz Five Star something or other

Any thoughts? 100k BA miles + YQ + $95 non-waived annual fee, or 50k CO miles? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm rather new at this, and definitely new at intl travel! Thanks.
I'd definitely go with BA 100k and if you really want Continental miles, you can get an Amex Plat with50k bonus points (albeit $450 annual fee- but lots of benefits and major lounge access/priority pass/free global entry/ $200 in fee rebates, etc) and then transfer those 50k to Continental by Sept 30.

I already did this the 1st time around, but glad it's back. I'll probably get my parents in on this, but between signing them up for the Capital One 100k miles, Continental 50k miles, United 50k miles and SPG 30k points (along with other miscellaneous cards) this year, I'm not sure if they'll go crazy managing this promotion. Ahhh!
My wife signed up for the 50K BA card last month in the hopes that it would be churnable. It isn't, it turns out. A letter arrived in the mail indicating that the offer was good for first-time cardholders only. YMMV.
