I wasn't aware of this until I asked thepointsguy on his blog but regarding the Companion ticket for spending $30,000 in a year, the year is a CALENDAR year, not an anniversary year from the date you opened the card.

I thought that was handy to know because we're already down 3.5 months in 2011!

1-800-432-3117 was the number that I called. I pressed an option for application status and then an option for credit card application status.

Thanks for the replies. I found a different CC status number, which gave me the automated "30 days wait, etc, etc".

Then yesterday, logged into my Chase/CO debit account and found a new Chase VISA card listed on my account page, only 2 days after I applied. Nice!

Welcome to FlyerTalk, linda705,

You can use the ITA website to estimate the amount of taxes/fees/surcharges you can expect to pay on a BAEC redemption.

http://matrix.itasoftware.com/

For a HOU-HNL coach fare, ITA lists the following taxes/fees:
US Transportation Tax (US) $14.11
US Alaska/Hawaii Departure Tax (US) $16.40
US September 11th Security Fee (AY) $10.00
US Passenger Facility Charge (XF) $16.50
US Flight Segment Tax (ZP) $14.80

Note, not all of the above are fixed fees: the US Transportation Tax is calculated as a percentage of the base fare (7.5%) and thus works out as zero against a redemption fare.

So an award flight from ORD-HNL on American would just require us to pay these/similar taxes?

No. BA currently charges $2.50 for a redemption on AA for the ORD-HNL nonstop (same fee in the other direction). If you connect or stopover in California on the award, I think BA will charge you an extra $2.50 for the additional segment. None of the other fees/taxes associated with a cash ticket applies.

BA Visa Card 100K Miles promo question?
 
I recently signed up for the 100K mile Visa program thinking that 100K points would be awarded upon meeting a couple of conditions.

As I read through the promo stuff, I just noticed that 50K will be rewarded after the first purchase and another 50K if you spend $2500USD in first three months...so far so good.

However, I have also noticed that it refers to the 50K miles as if it is a coupon or just an award for economy travel...not the miles that I thought it was.

Does anyone know whether the award is a voucher for travel or if the account is awarded the 50K as miles to be used as one wishes?

Thank you to anyone who responds!

Which promo is this? Is it US only? Link please.

ffI Apr 17, 11 8:27 am

It is a regular offer of miles subject to conditions that are very easy to meet. US only, I am afraid.

It will be miles posted to your BAEC account. No coupons or vouchers.

Hope the above helps...

Point 3 of the Ts&Cs:


After qualifying, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for bonus BA Miles to post to your account.
I think that covers it.

I called Chase at 800-432-3117, and then navigated my way through the voice system until I could reach a CSR.

Applied last Monday night, 4/11,...was approved by Wednesday (according to my pre-existing online Chase account),...called on Thursday night and asked for expedited shipment of card,...rep said it would arrive in 2 business days at no cost to me. I expect my card to arrive tomorrow, Monday, 4/18.

Thanks for the tip. I applied at the same time but am still waiting... I couldn't enter my Chase account info in my application due to system error.
