Shopping portals are one of the best ways to earn miles on a consistent basis. In fact, you can often earn far more by shopping online sitting at home than you would by sitting on an airplane! 🙂 And for a couple more days, you can earn double Avios with this special bonus offer.

The Value of British Airways Avios
Even though British Airways basically eliminated the first tier of distances for reward redemptions for US flights (the lowest price is 7,500 Avios for one way flights up to 1,151 miles), there is still a lot of value to be had.
I recently redeemed for a few flights that were costing over $450 – but it only cost 7,500 Avios each. That is a handy redemption value of 6 cents per Avios!
