Remember the era of the 90+ day churn cycle? That’s gone out the window. In an Avios crisis with the Amex MR devaluation, I applied and was approved for the British Airways card which gives 50k Avios after 2k spend. No it isn’t the 100k offer that I had once before but it will raise my balance to 80k Avios, a decent amount of points to sustain me through the cold winter.
As the October 1st devaluation draws nearer, I still may transfer a few MRs to reach the symbolic 100k mark but that’s a decision for another day.
Till then, keep churning my friends.
