Bonus Avios on my Chase BA card

After looking at my statement this month, I noticed I received 2500 bonus avios. I called Chase to see if there was a promo I was unaware of. They had no explanation. I did spend $404 for taxes on BA, and got the 1212 avios for that spend. Did I miss something?

I also received 2500 avios bonus on my April 28 Chase statement. I am somewhat obsessive about tracking various promotions, but I am clueless on this one. Any idea? Thanks!

I also received the 2500 Avios bonus and haven't been able to figure out why.

I received a 2500 point bonus and in the BA app it shows it listed as "Finance Card - Contactless offer"

I use it with Google Pay all the time and pay with my phone and they had just sent me a new contactless physical card a couple of months ago, so maybe they were having a promo if you used it that way?

Mine also shows as "Finance Card - Contactless offer", and it was the first month where I used the contactless functionality of the card. I suspect the mystery is solved.

I received an email about the promotion (long deleted so this is from memory), 500 bonus points per contactless transaction, up to 5 (2500 Avios max).

I received that one and when I tried to register my husband's card for it I received a message that it was not available for him.

I also got the 'contactless offer' but also 1692 Avios for "BA EC Spend" ... any idea what that is? This was in addition to the Avios based on my CC charges ... "VISA Avios".

Same here. Would be interested to know what was this secret offer for which I was super-secretly eligible...

On my last statement I had a credit for 2000 Avios for using contactless payment .... and right under it, the Avios were taken away!
