Termos e Condições

Ganhar um Vale de Acompanhante

  1. You can only receive a Companion Voucher if you are a Member of the British Airways Executive Club and are the main Account holder within a British Airways American Express Card Account (a “Cardmember”).
  2. Holders of Supplementary (additional) Cards to the main Account holder’s British Airways American Express Card Account are not eligible to receive a Companion Voucher. Any amount spent on any Supplementary Card(s) will count towards the main Account holders' spend target.
  3. To be entitled to receive a Companion Voucher the Cardmember must have reached their required spend target within a 12 month period ending each year on the anniversary of their Card Account start date (e.g. if a Cardmember opens a Card Account on 20 June 2009 then they must have reached their spend target by 19 June 2010 so that they can begin earning towards their next Voucher on 20 June 2010). Anniversary date details can be found on the Card Account statements, or online by logging in at americanexpress.co.uk or by calling the number on the back of the Card. The spend target varies depending on which British Airways American Express Card the Member has:
    — Classic - £20,000
    — Premium - £15,000
    — Premium Plus - £10,000
    Please note that qualifying spend does not include Cash Withdrawals, Interest, Balance Transfers and Fees.

  4. Only one Companion Voucher can be earned in any 12 month period. If the Cardmember reaches their spend target within 12 months of their Card Account start date then further spend will not accumulate towards another Companion Voucher. Cardmembers can begin earning towards their next Companion Voucher after their 12 month Card anniversary date.
  5. When the Cardmember has reached their spend target an e-voucher (“Companion Voucher”) will be added to their British Airways Executive Club account. The Companion Voucher will be valid from the date on which it appears on the Cardmembers Executive Club account and will be valid for:
    — Classic – 12 Months
    — Premium – 12 Months
    — Premium Plus – 24 Months
