Got the same page after completing my app.

I have Debix, so I should be getting a call on my "special phone number" asking for my "special passphrase" to allow access to my credit file.

Trying to look for an excuse to go for the card but so far no luck. BA is not useful out of PDX not to mention the exorbitant fuel charges even if it were. How about any transfer opportunities? Can you transfer BA miles into any hotel programs like you can with AA? I would definitely go for the card if that was the case but I haven't found any such opportunities...

Just applied and also got the 15 day response after I completed the application. Not usually one to jump on most CC offers but I just could not pass this up since BA flies out of all three airports that I use for international flights (BWI, PHL and IAD).

I would think that you have to be logged into your account since the offer is currently only supposed to be open for current Executive Club members.

Visa Platinum Receiving Bonus?

One concern I do have is in the terms:

"1 You will first be considered for a Visa Signature card. If you do not qualify for that product, you will automatically be considered for a Visa Platinum card, which has different fees, benefits, and credit availability. For pricing details, please see Pricing & Terms. For benefits details, please read your credit card benefits materials which will be mailed after your account is established."

Chase has the same sort of clause with the Chase United Mileage Plus Visa card--and back in college when I applied for a 20,000 mile bonus offer for the Signature card, I was given the Platinum card--and the bonus as well.


Any experiences with Chase and the BA Executive Club Visa in this regard? In the event that someone is denied the Signature card but approved for the Platinum card, will he/she still receive the 100,000 bonus and the companion certificate (with $30,000 in spending)?

How about just using the 100,000 BA miles for award travel on AA and/or AS?

It sounds like, with what others have said, BA doesn't give you many, if any, options for non-BA metal. If I knew I had a good chance of getting some cheap AA award I would definitely go for it. So is there some trick to getting an AA, or AS award via the BA booking? My BA learning curve here is pretty much a flat line thus far...

I'm not a BA expert, but it seems that you can redeem for the (overpriced) oneworld award even if BA metal awards are available. It would be nice if someone can confirm this. Also, can you get non-TATL AA metal awards if BA metal is available? Is pricing for this different from the oneworld awards?

For example, IB-only and AY-only award tickets for US-Europe travel from Zone ABC to Zone XYZ price out the same in miles as they would if on a BA-only US-Europe award tickets for Zone ABC-Zone XYZ trip.

I've used BA miles for award travel between the US and South America on AA-only and LA-only itineraries.

I have as well. BA availability on AA tends to be similar to whats shown on AA.com although I haven't been able to get BA to ticket convoluted routings that AA would (e.g. JFK-DFW-MIA-SSA). Also its worth noting that BA change/redeposit fees for award tickets are much less than for awards using AA miles.

... and no rapid redemption fee for booking awards on short notice either. [Just make sure to book your award travel at least one full business day (or maybe two) before your desired date of departure.]

A good use of BA miles is 100k in J NA to East Asia or 150k in F (can fly CX, JL or AA) or South America 80k in J or 120k in F (LA or AA)

pdx-sea-lhr and return. Fees & taxes look to be about $166. Add the annual c.c. fee and it looks like a good deal. Or use on AA & AS. Of course, you could just churn the CITI AA card and get 30K miles a month with no c.c. fees.

Does BA let you redeem for other airlines even if there is BA metal available?
