I didn't see this on the forum but i just got an offer to buy Avios with a bonus of up to 6,000 avois if I buy 24,000 at about $685 for 30,000 net avios which is what 2.28 cents for avios. Seems like a decent deal if you need to top off an account. Basically they are giving a 100 bonus it you buy from 1 to 6k in avios, buy 7k to 12k you get 1k bonus, 13 to 18k gets 2k bonus, 19 to 23k gets 4k bonus and if you buy the maximum 24k you get a 6k bonus. Any thoughts on this? Obviously the true value would be to use them domestically to avoid taxes on some short hauls. My goal it to have 45k for a certain trip and I'm sitting on about 17k right now. I'm thinking I would be better off going for the BA credit card 50k sign up in early 2013 instead but I'm always tempted by this bonus deals.
