British Airways' shopping portal is doubling earnings at all stores for about 23 more hours (ends July 8 at 4pm Pacific), making for some sweet shopping deals!
BA Avios are a great currency for shorter flights. They are a OneWorld alliance member, so Avios can be redeemed on partner flights with several airlines including American, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways, Qantas, and more. They are also a transfer partner of Chase & Amex, so it's easy to top off the balance for future redemptions.
You'll need a BA account, which you can set up very quickly here: https://www.britishairways.com/travel/register-now/public/en_us?source=PHP-Register-Top
Don't forget to stack the shopping portal bonus by paying (when possible) with MileagePlus X or Gyft (via Paypal with the Ink Cash card) to earn even more!
Everything is increased, so you need to go look for yourself. But here are some deals that stand out:
-Nike: 12x Avios (best stack is MPX app for another 5x)
-Apple: 6x Avios (I've never seen it this high! Not stackable)
-Overstock: 14x Avios (stack with MPX app for another 5x)
-Target: 4x Avios (stack with Gyft/Avios/Ink Cash trick if you can)
-eBags: 20x Avios (no stack)
-And many, many, many more.
