    BA Amex Cards: Get 7,000/13,000 BA Miles Bonus! (Refer-a-friend)

    BA Amex Cards: Get 7,000/13,000 BA Miles Bonus! (Refer-a-friend) 12th Jan 08 at 4:08 PM
    Hello All!

    This is my first post to the MSE Forums, I'm a long time lurker, quite shy, haven't posted until now as I haven't had much to share, however that's just changed and thought I would share this with you all in the hope that others will benefit from this offer.

    American Express have a new "Member Get Member" refer-a-friend campaign running. For the British Airways Amex Cards it works like this:

    The person who is applying for the card gets:
    7,000 BA Miles if they're referred & accepted for the Premium Plus card. (Possibly 13,000; see below)
    2,000 BA Miles if they're referred & accepted for for the standard BA card. (Possibly 3,000; see below)


    The person doing the referring gets (for a successful referral):
    2,000 BA Miles if they hold an Amex British Airways card.
    4,000 BA Miles if they hold an Amex British Airways Premium Plus card.


    This compares to the standard 1,000/6,000 'first card use' miles advertised on Amex's site.

    HOWEVER, when my father in law applied for the BA card - he received his 2,000 referral bonus instantly - AND, when he spent on the card for the first time, the 1,000 standard/advertised bonus was also awarded! He is now showing 3,030 miles (the bonus points plus his £30 spend points.) Therefore, although I'm not promising, you could receive upto 13,000 BA Miles for the Premium Plus if referred by a friend! (7,000 refer-a-friend bonus + standard 6,000 first use bonus.).

    Another good reason to get the cards now is, once you have the card, you're more than welcome to refer your parents, inlaws, brothers, sisters, relatives, friends to get their own cards to boost your own BA Miles balance! Think of the possibilities! ;-)

    I'm of course more than happy to be a friend to anyone here and refer you for a BA or BAPP credit card so you can get the bonus miles. Please PM your name and e-mail address and I'll fire you off an email.

    I will be happy to make a donation to charity for each referral, as recommended by this site's rules. I'm thinking £5-10 per referral. This is much higher than the 10% recommended.

    Here is the link for existing cardholders (to refer a friend with):
    http://www.americanexpress.com/uk/mgm/default.cgi

    All the best,
    Speedy

    P.S. it also appears that if you place a Quidco cookie on the Amex site thru following the Quidco link, and THEN use the email link from your friend to signup, you'll be awarded both the bonus miles and the £25 Quidco cashback on top! 13,000 BA Miles is worth £91 based on MSE's loyalty points checker - twice that if you are redeeming a 2-4-1 voucher.

    I have a referral link for the AmEx prefered rewards gold credit card
    http://amex.co.uk/refer/lucystutH?CPID=100200078
    This will give you an extra 2000 membership reward points on top of the standard 20,000 and will be credited as soon as you spend 2000 in the first 3 months of cardmembership, I will receive 9000.
    These points can be converted into many different rewards including air miles with various airlines or hotels.

    Hi all, would be great if someone could use my referral link.
    Being referred is a great way to get extra points (22,000 instead of 20,000)
    Also if you get the amex gold card you don't need to pay the membership fee for the first year, also you get access to the lounge at the airports which is a great bonus.
    My link is
    http://amex.co.uk/refer/merryf9jer?CPID=100200082

    Would also be happy to offer a bonus from my side, please do pm me for more info

    WARNING: DO NOT USE "cogitoergosum"
    Hello all,

    Just a quick warning: DO NOT use the referral code from "cogitoergosum"...

    He promised 40 on referral of the BA Premium Plus card, but never paid out. It's been almost 3 weeks since I've been approved for the card and I've already received the bonus Avios from AMEX. I've sent multiple messages to him, which have all been ignored.

    I have proof, which is available on request.

    Hello


    Is there a reason why referrals are being deleted - am I breaking some sort of rule.

    Hey

    Use the below link to sign up for the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Credit Card

    and you will receive:

    22,000 Membership Rewards points/Avios Points when you spend 2,000 in the first 3 months.

    Link: amex.co.uk/refer/robergnhjc

    This is an EXTRA 2,000 on top of what you would receive if you signed up without the link!

    You will also get 1 membership reward point/Avios (they can be converted 1 to 1) for every 1 spent. Plus 10,000 bonus points if you spend 15,000 in the first year.

    The card is free for the the first year and then you can cancel it before having to pay anything.

    Hi everyone I have referrals for my Amex gold credit card as others have mentioned if you spend 2000 within the first three months you will get 22000 points.
    I only have a few weeks before I need to transfer my points into air miles and cancel my card before yr2 fees.! I can forward my link if anyone is interested. Thanx

    Did you know you can refer yourself?

    Follow your own referral link and change the card type.

    For example, you can go for the BAPP which will give you 26000 Avios if you spend 3K in 3 months, plus 9000 Avios for the referral.

    It comes with a fee of 195, but is popular for people who want to earn a two for one voucher. And once you get the voucher, you can cancel and get a pro rata refund.

    You will not get the sign up bonus if you have held a BA card in the last six months.

    Not for the card you already hold. But you can refer yourself for other cards.

    Also look out for bonus points for adding a supplementary card holder to your account.

    Shame! It is what it is.
    o.k will have a look at that.

    BTW I have a Green charge card - Can I still benefit of a referral?
    Gold made more sense BUT im new to the AMEX scene so wanted to try it out - suppose I can always upgrade in the future?
