The airline has launched its first-ever buy Avios sale at up to 40% bonus through November 17, 2022, but does it make any sense?
You can access this offer on Qatar’s website here.
Buying the maximum Avios allowed at a 40% bonus:
The price of Avios is 2 US cents each.
You can buy Avios at roughly a bit higher than 1 euro cent through BA buy Avios subscriptions or at 1.2 euro cents each during frequent sales at a 50% bonus.
My Privilege Club account appears to be in the US, while the Executive Club one uses an address in Europe.
I probably should switch the Privilege Club account from the US to Europe to see if a better buy Avios offer is available.
It makes zero sense to purchase at this price when you can buy it considerably cheaper through BA.
