Darn it... after I hit the continue button, I got an error message saying my account is not eligible to purchase avios. I guess the rule is strictly enforced, and I can forget about this promotion now.

Anyone knows how the charge for purchasing those Avios would appear on a CC statement?

More specifically do you think I'd get 4 Avios/ on my MBNA BMI card for this purchase (the typical rate I get for all British Airways ticket purchases)
