Get in on 1,000 FREE British Midland Miles While You Still Can

British Midland, International (BMI) a favorite loyalty program for Star Alliance award redemptions, was finally acquired last month by IAG, the owner of Oneworld Alliance alirlines British Airways and Iberia.  The announcement of IAG’s proposal last December proved quite controversial, as many including Virgin Atlantic owner Richard Branson are afraid the move will increase British Airways’ monopoly of Heathrow Airport–among the busiest in the world.

Politics and economics aside, this means the transition of British Midland Dividend Miles into highly criticized British Airways Avios seems inevitable. Currently BMI is giving away 1,000  for new account sign-ups:

BMI Sign-Up Bonus

British Airways household accounts can be combined for up to seven members residing at the same address.  So theoretically earn up to 7,000 miles through this way.  Then, as As Ben of One Mile at a Time suggests, ONCE they transfer over  to Avios you could then combine miles for a short-haul, one-way award ticket.

Anyway, I would get in on  FREE miles with BMI, while you still can!

Tip of the hat to One Mile at a Time.
