The trick–Join Executive Club, British Airways’ frequent flyer program, and start earning Avios miles. Earn 50,000 free Avios miles with British Airways Signature Visa Card (after spending $2,000 in the first three months) with no annual fee for the first year and a $95 annual fee thereafter. That 50,000 miles could get you up to 5 short haul round trips on American Airlines with 5,000 miles to spare. That’s because British Airlines is a code share partner with American Airlines and its Executive Club awards are mileage based. British Airways segments less than 650 miles cost only 4,500 Avios miles each way (as opposed to 12,500 American AAdvantage miles). Accordingly, you can fly from Chicago to Atlanta for just 9,000 Avios miles round trip. Chicago to Orlando would be only 15,000 Avios miles round trip. The beauty is your still flying on American Airlines through the miracle of code sharing. Bing, bang, boom—you just beat the man!!
