“Though not coming close to our 1.2 valuation, for such small amounts, this can make sense (and/or makes little difference), and I have been known to be an Avios buyer for that needed coffee on board.”
Buying wine with Avios is also inadvisable. “BA also offers various promotions to buy wine via the Executive Club website,” Kelvin detailed.
“Though it depends on what wines you’d get, the current offers range from 9,500 Avios to 14,800 Avios for six bottles.
“At our valuations and those rates, you’re effectively paying £114 to £177 for six bottles.
“To some extent, whatever the quality, there are bound to be better deals not using Avios.”
