Here's how to get the 1000 points.And voila! Free 1000 Avios points.Upto 7 account can be linked together- so you have potentially 7000 free AVIOS points.
The British Airways AVIOS program is distanced based. So for 7000 points you could easily get a one way domestic ticket, with the smallest amount needed being 4500 Avios points [britishairways.com]. (For example - NYC- Boston)

Cheers. Wink

P.S- keeping the points in the British Midland Account won't be of any use because they've been acquired by British Airways.

DEAD (code is not working anymore)

#############################

REMEMBER to use the voucher code1JA1KD when creating your BMI account!!laugh out loud

And if you are going to be creating 6 other accounts, make sure that the HOME address matches. Give some the same last name... Wink
Play it safe and you'll avoid the dreaded "Ex-Gratia". nod

Ex-Gratia is what appears on your account when BA is auditing your account, when it believes that you got your points through means that they don't approve off.

Like- Buying a roundtrip ticket and not flying the return. Or creating a multi-city itinerary and skipping out on the last leg.
Or selling your points (if they see that you've used your points to buy tickets for others MANY times)
OR creating FAKE accounts to add to your Household account. Wink

Check this out- "Help BA just cancelled all my avios" [flyertalk.com]

Having problems combining miles?
  • If you are having trouble Merging your Avios,
  • Log in to your BA account.
  • From the menu above - select Executive Club then click on Manage Account.
  • Then on the page you will see a Combine My Avios Link and that will work for you. (Mamon)
If you have problem finding the "Combine My Avios" Link, update your profile with DOB, save and go back to manage my account, you will see the link appear after that.


When you created your BA account if you did not fill out the details under Advance Passenger Information it does not have your birthdate. Without that the system thinks you are under 18 and is preventing you from having the option to combine miles.
Update that then from your main page select Manage My Account. once there in the center panel at the bottom you should see "combine my avios".


_________________________________________________________________________

Just contacted Executive Club - was told that this activity does extend expiration of miles for another 36 months.

When I signed up (20 minutes ago), the points were already in my account. As soon as I hit "Join Diamond Club" and it took me to the welcome page, the points were there.

This is for NEW accounts. The only way you can get the points is by creating another new account. I don't think there should be any problem creating a new account, unless if you've ALREADY COMBINED your old BMI account to your BA account.

my points were not added instantly - the combine avios points just took me to my avios account page.

HOWEVER, my 50K points from the visa card posted today - so that was a nice surprise. nod

Thanks Op. I would think this should also extend your membership for another 18 months in case of non-activity.

I go to your link, then I click combine my avios and it just takes me to my account. What to do then?
