LHR JFK return offer stacking special (net ~100)

Not done one of these for a while, but just booked:

LHR JFK return, out 1805 Jun 7th back 1830 Jun 9th, 275

5000 avios for 100 discount, 8650 avios back, net 3650 (GCH)

Net cash price 175

Same flights available via travelup 252, double price promise returns 50, claim already settled.

So overall net is 125 less the avios, say 35,

final net total 90 (may vary). Lots of other dates and time combos also work. But anyone who cares to join me on this one is welcome. A generous 40 TP too.

Very good deal this 5000/100. Shanghai looks good in May in Y, and wife and boy off to see the Grandparents in Kul for peanuts (in the sense of not costing much, though there will certainly be real peanuts too) If you can combine with a price promise deal it's fantastic.

Thanks for the heads up, just booked a trip to NYC over one of the May bank holidays using this. Hopefully BA will approve my claim. Also used travelup.

Last night I booked using the 5000 avios offer and got NYC for 175 in May. Am I too late to use this price promise thingy or can get it?

Looking at these flights (270) the avios offer isn't available, but if you change one leg to standard economy (+40), or choose some 300 flights the offer is available.
Is there some criteria I'm missing for flights under 300?

I have done much the same as bisonrav (who I should thank for originally inspiring me to start the is price checking lark several months ago) for a weekend in May. I used Travel Trolley as my comparison and the voucher was in my account within about 12 hours.

Sorry tazxxx but can't offer any insight on your issue - only looked at the basic economy fares for JFK and BOS (which are quite far enough for me in WT) but saw the 100 on every search.

So it looks like the price comparison holds even after the avios discount brings the total cash paid below that of the comparison site?

Have I got this right ?

Yes, it definitely does - I've just done this to YYZ and gotten a 50 based on the pre-Avios discount price.

Probably known/mentioned but just for those unaware, the offer doesn't include OW partners.

Priced up a LHR-MIA in May and wondered why it wasn't working, then realised I'd selected the AA flight for the outbound.

Thanks! I suppose it makes sense avios is a currency: of sorts.

Beirut is also great for this, I'd have done it but I couldn't make dates line up. As described previously, it books into N so very good TP and Avios return. And UuA available for them as do that sort of thing.

Funny thing this time is that I nearly didn't check the NY fare as I thought 275 was as good as it was going to get. Then BA decided they wanted screen shots of the trip to KL I set up for my wife, and that annoyed me sufficiently to have a look at skyscanner for my trip.
LSunbury and MrPrice16 like this.

Well thank you for posting as I had completely not thought of the deal and it was great savings on my trip to Toronto. It may not be the best value then other destinations, but I needed to go anyways!

Does anyone know if this can be achieved for multiple tickets (ie me + 3 family members)? So one ticket + 20,000 avios + one price-check claim = 4 x 130 tickets
Or is it one lot of Avios + one price claim per person? Don't really want to have to try to get four separate tickets.
Thanks

Found the answer in the T&Cs just as I hit send!

Sorry but leaving it up in case it helps others.
  1. The offer entitles Eligible Members booking Eligible Flights at ba.com or via a British Airways contact centre, to receive a discount of 100 per person in exchange for 5000 Avios per person (for up to 9 persons within one booking) when travelling before 30 June 2019. If there is more than one person on the booking, the Member must have 5000 Avios per person in their account to take advantage of this offer. E.g. for a return booking with 4 people, the Member must have 20,000 Avios to save 100 per person.
