Save $75 or $100 on All British Airways Flights Through October 1st

British Airways is sending emails to certain Executive Club members offering a $75 discount on World Traveller (economy) flights or $100 discount on World Traveller Plus (premium economy) flights if booked by March 31st. You can travel now through October 1st.

What I find interesting about this email is that they claim this is an exclusive discount that can only be booked using the dedicated link in your email. However, I found that anyone can use this link and it does not have to clicked from the targeted user’s email to access these discounted fares. By clicking this link, you will see the right-hand side of the webpage show the promotion and when searching for flights, you will see flights appear with the word “discounted” in red.

Here is the link to use to access this promotion.

I did a simple search for a roundtrip flight from NY to London for May to see if I really did save $75 or $100. While searching, I noticed the majority of flights were eligible for this promotion but not all such as the American flights with a BA codeshare (though the terms do seem indicate these should be eligible as well). In short, the fares are truly $75 or $100 cheaper when going through that dedicated page to book flights.

This certainly isn’t a can’t miss deal but if you plan on booking paid British Airways flights you should at least be able to save $75 or $100.

Here are the full terms and conditions if you are interested:
