is there a way I can trade off BA miles, since I am unable to use it before expiry
You can check out coupon connection on flyertalk, but you need 90 posts and to have been a member for 90 days, iirc.
It's possible in theory, but you should know that it's against the terms of the program, and if they catch you, they can do things like take away the miles and close your account. Be careful.
Perhaps an easier approach might be to refresh the expiration date. The link includes all the ways to do it, but earning or spending a few miles with a partner is usually the easiest. That'll give you another 36 months.
According to the Inside Flier mileage converter, it appears you can move points and miles into BA, but not out of it. So, if you have points in a hotel or credit card account, look at the exchange rate to move them to BA and increase your balance to a level that is usable for you.
Straight out trading with other people, especially with people you don't know, is high risk behavior- airline revenue management teams are on top of those things, and you can lose your entire balance.
If you shop at Tesco you can get BA miles. Check out this link, which should help you keep your account alive as long as the program goes.
Yeah, be careful.
I think it would be nice if MP had a similar forum to Coupon Connection. CC has been invaluable to me over the years, trading what I had for what I really needed.
My understanding is that something like this will eventually be added to MP. In the meantime, offers of complete freebies are allowed here and I've seen a few already, although obviously not for real valuable stuff.
Yep. I've gifted some AA 10% off codes in the AA forum.
Can I shop at Tesco in the USA?
