I share your pain. I experienced this for the first time on 8th June

On the positive side, I'm back up to 400TP now, and should be on 760 by the end of the month

Also feel your pain. Had my 640 points reset last month, didn't get to Silver as still needed 2 flights, a recent Cathay Pacific flight had given me the points but not the flights. Oh well, still got bronze!!

Time of joy. I was on 3250, so my next flight would have been wasted points (like my last one)

BA should leave our Tier points as they are and just lift the targets - that way we still have the same challenge, but at least we feel we are somewhere on the journey.

Yeah, I get that also. I was panicking and planning TP runs as I thought my year would be slow, but six months in and I will renew Gold this weekend. GGL time hopefully by end member year.

I've just had this. I managed to get so very close to Silver again after dropping down to Bronze for the last 12 months. Unfortunately, I just couldn't find the time needed to do a TP run.

This doesn't bother me at all? The huge number of Avios next to it is the only one I'm really that bothered about. I know for a fact I'll retain Silver (probably Gold) in any given year, so just get on with it!

Monthly depression, surely. Happens twelve times a year (with attendant, repetitive FT threads) /grump

It was a surprise this morning when I logged in to book a flight, for the last 5 months I've seen "You have earned all the Gold Guest List Benefits available". This morning my 5 figure TP balance is now "0" and now it says "To retain Gold Guest List membership you need: 3000 Tier Points".



Let the fun begin again!

I start my next trip on Monday, that will get me to Gold within 15 days of reset!

I feel your pain, really hate that.


Maybe I can bargain with BA, they can take my 2 kids, they are potty trained and fully paid for and they can just keep my TP #s.

I'm in that pointless phase where I've comfortably renewed silver but am too far away from gold to stand much chance of hitting it before the dreaded reset.
