15000 free Avios from Amex! [a gift for being a cardmember for 15 years]

Time flies. It may be hard to believe but the British Airways Executive Club is celebrating fifteen years of partnering with American Express®. As a thank you for being a Cardmember and part of it since the beginning, we would like to reward you with 15,000 Avios.

As you know, there are lots of ways to spend your Avios – whether you decide to put it towards a cabin upgrade, hotel stay, or reward flight for your next getaway – we think it's well‑deserved.

Thank you again, and we hope you enjoy.

Warm regards,
James Hillier
from the Executive Club

Anybody else got this email?

Just received, a welcome surprise. Moreso since I don't credit flights to BAEC so am a perpetual blue...

Nope - and I have the platinum charge card and the premium BA credit card. But then, I no longer have any BA status, so perhaps that's why

Yes, also just got it. Logged in here to see if it was genuine, and it seems to be! Happy days :-)

Yes, had noticed 4 hours ago 15,000 avios had appeared on my account - the narrative being "Special Promotion". I had been scratching my head trying to work our what it was.....

Nothing for me! But then I never seem to get any useful promotions from BA, such as the birthday bonuses. I just get a load of useless promotions - this week some rubbish about earning Avios on cruises came through the post (I can't think of anything worse than a cruise holiday!)

Handy hint.

If you use the BA App to look at your BAEC statement, you get a broader explanation. In this case, it says:

Special Promotion -) BA Amex cobrand 15yr Surprise and Deligh 15,000 Avios

Is this just for those who have had the card for the full 15 years since the beginning or have any of you had it for less time?

Nothing for me (yet, hopefully!). Have been there from the start, so fingers crossed!
