BA Executive Club Buy Avios Bonus only 50% for Canadian British Airways credit card holders

Last Wednesday we posted about the latest British Airways Executive Club buy Avios bonus that runs until May 18. The bonus as seen in other countries like the U.S. and U.K. is 50% for those members who don’t hold a British Airways co-branded credit card but was 75% for those who do have one. We weren’t 100% sure if that was the case for those in Canada who have the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card so we reached out to the Rewards Canada community to find out. One of our readers, Dennis C who has the RBC BA card logged into his account and only showed a 50% bonus. Based on this I would have to assume that this unfortunately means that Canadian BA credit card holders aren’t getting the same bonus as seen by those in the U.S. and U.K. This is really too bad as we’ve never seen a 75% bonus before from British Airways and as Dennis puts it:

“Which is not fair, but that is par for the course here in Canada!”

Anyways here’s a recap of the offer which now has the 75% wording removed from our site:
