Up to 100K Avios - 50K after $3K spend/3 mos. plus 50K after $20K spend in 12 months($95 AF) New benefits (August 2019):

Now with up to $600 in statement credits for award taxes and fees PER CALENDAR YEAR. 3x$200 or 3x $100 depending on class booked. See the details for flight restrictions, etc, here:
https://www.chase.com/personal/credi...atement-credit

The calendar year restriction means that you can use it twice in the upcoming months, 3x on or before Dec 31 and 3x again after Jan 1 or a total of up to $1200.

10% back on flights booked at BA.com using the code CHASEBA10.
The details are here: https://www.chase.com/personal/credi...save-10percent


Avios can be combined or moved between Iberia and Air Lingus accounts.
Chase also offers sign up bonuses on Air LIngus and Iberia co-branded airline credit cards. (As of August 2019's offers both are tiered 100K Avios offers) This allows big spenders that are under 5/24 to get up to 300K in sign up bonuses, plus combine points to book at BA.com for flights and get the fuel surcharge refund and 10% off.
See the BA forum and this thread in the Chase forum for Avios earnings strategies: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/chas...os-points.html

Spending $30,000 will earn a Companion Fare "Travel Together" ticket.
Details are here: https://www.chase.com/personal/credi...ravel-together

Downgrades: Chase offers a no fee BA card. It's not available for new applications but can be accessed via a downgrade from the standard, $95 a year card. When the annual fee comes due you can downgrade/ product change to the British Airways rewards credit card with no annual fee and thereby preserve your card number, credit line and Average Age of Account. It's unclear whether the fee free card will get the new perks (August 2019) of an award fee rebate. Perhaps someone with the fee free card can make a dummy booking and update us here at FT.


Q. Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously? How long do I have to wait before reapplying? Should I call if my application is held for further review and not approved instantly?
A. See the wiki and related discussion in Applying for Chase Credit Cards, 2017 onward
Q. Once I meet the card's initial spending requirement, how soon will I receive my signup bonus points?
A. Bonus points typically accrue at the close of the billing period in which you incur the corresponding charges. Points should appear in your hotel/airline account within a few days thereafter.

NOTE: If you complete your required spending in the last 7-10 days of the statement period, the bonus may not post until the following month's statement, even if the regular per-dollar points post on the first statement. This is normal behavior for Chase and is not worth a phone call.

You beat me to it by about a minute. Public non-targeted landing page http://www.britishairways.com/travel...penxtype=click and application https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...ID=&PROMO=DF01

Not for me but a decent deal with no fee and 1.25 Avios per dollar

I thought all the past offers incurred a $95 first year annual fee. This offer includes the first year annual fee waived.

In the past (as recently as one month back, when I did my AOR) the first year fee was not waived.. they have now waived it till 30th September.. and while the emails made me feel that it's targeted, a quick click on chase website confirmed that it's an open offer..

It will be interesting to hear from other recent BA Visa applicants if Chase will be willing to refund the 1st year annual fee.

I've been holding off on applying for the BA card, but will likely pull the trigger during my next churn with no 1st year annual fee now.

It wasn't the standard offer. It had a $95 fee first year.

50K Avios will net you 10 one way tickets on BA partners (I like AS/QX) if the distance is =<650 miles.

I know. I said it "wasn't", as in the past.

The previous standard offer was 50k / 1k spend in 90 days. So for another 1k spend now you get the AF waived.

I think the chance at an extra 50k (if another 100k bonus happens) is worth risking the $95 annual fee waive, so I'm gonna wait =)

Can you open a Visa Signature with Chase under a $5,000 credit limit?
