Earn up to a 100,000 Bonus Avios  for a new account

New British Airways Visa Signature® cardholders receive 50,000 Bonus Avios after charging $3,000 on eligible purchases during their first 3 months.

Spending a total of $20,000 on the card within the first year garners another 50,000 Bonus Avios, for a total of 100,000 Avios.

The card is available ONLY if you have not had this card and or received a new card bonus in the past 24 months.

Get Rewarded

British Airways Visa Signature® Card gives users:

  • 3 Avios for every dollar spent on British Airways, Iberia or Aer Lingus travel
  • 2 Avios for every dollar spent on hotel accommodations if booked directly with the hotel
  • For purchases on other items you still get 1 Avios for every dollar charged on the card.

Another premium feature is that there no foreign transaction fees when you travel abroad, whereas many credit cards assess a 3% charge simply for using the their card on foreign soil.

More Savings

Get a 10% discount on British Airways flights starting in the US when booking through the website specified in the welcome materials.

For tickets to London receive statement credits of $100 for Economy and Premium Economy – or $200 for Business and First Class seats – three times per year, up to $600, if booking a reward flight on British Airways using the British Airways Visa Signature® Card (taxes, fees and carrier charges not included).

As an additional perk every calendar year you make $30,000 in purchases on your British Airways Visa Signature® card, you will earn a Travel Together Ticket good for two years.

There is a modest $95 annual membership fee for the credit card.

Kawasaki Credit Card

Kawaski MotorcycleQualified buyers can ride away on a brand-new Kawasaki with no down payment.

Kawasaki offers up to 100% instant financing on most Kawasaki products with a Kawasaki credit card from Citibank at an authorized dealer.

In most cases, the credit approval process takes just minutes and you may be able to add credit insurance, accessories and the Good Times Protection Plan to your contract.

Note that the credit card is only a store brand card and will not be accepted where Mastercard or Visa Card are: it has no use other than at Kawaski dealerships.

Also cardholders must go to their dealer to use it every time, since it cannot be used online at any Kawasaki web site.

The finance charge for the card may be steep, so knowledgeable users immediately transfer balances to a card which offers promotional rates of 0% for transfer balances.

While the Kawaski Credit Card from Citibank gives immediate financing on your Kawaski purchase, beware of its limitations before signing up.
