Purchasing Avios - a question

I know it's not the most effective way of doing things, just curious, I see BA are offering a 30% bonus at present on Avios bought, is this the biggest bonus BA offer when selling Avios, or have you seen a higher bonus?

From memory there have been 50% (?) bonuses in the recent past. When this promotion launched I recall seeing something on HeadforPoints noting that it was a poor speculative offer, unless you had an immediate need to top up to hit a specific target.

Hi,

I have seen a 35% bonus ( and possibly recall a special 40% once but not 100% sure)

Regards

I have taken advantage of a 50% previously, so I wouldn’t go for this unless you had a specific flight in mind and have done the maths!
