BAEC enrolment rules relaxed.

I see BAEC have relaxed the rules for enrolment,you do not need to have flown or booked a qualifying flight to join.
Has this been the rules for a while or just new?

Oh so it has. ^

Strange how this policy has ebbed and flowed over the last two decades. Enrollment can now be completed online and account becomes active triggered by posting of initial transaction.

It's back to the policy of old... because even I'm a BAEC member. You know how much I love the EC program and the BA service, such that I almost never fly BA. Yet they keep offering me the BA Visa card with mileage bonus for application.

Perhaps I should churn it, re-apply once every five weeks and quickly accumulate enough mileage to redeem annually in international F without spending a dime on BA tickets! Now that would be an awesome plan! The BA YM would not be pleased.

Applying for the Chase BA Visa card automatically enrolls you in the BAEC if you're not already a member.

Must be pretty new, as i tried to sign up mrs antichef about 2 weeks ago, and she didnt have any flights then. now been able to sign her up. booked her up for 3 flights today so she would have got in now anyway.

nice to get the seats sorted as a Silver for us both, even though we are in Y.
