On Business Points Value
British Airways On Business Points are worth about 3p each and are extremely more valuable than Avios. They have the best value when redeemed for economy and the lowest value when redeemed for business and first class tickets which is quite the opposite of most programs.
The purpose of On Business points is flexibility. You can use these points to book last minute business flights which can be useful if your plans were to suddenly change. You can also change, cancel, or upgrade your flight booking outside 24 hours before departures with no extra change or cancellation fees.
They can be used on British Airways, Iberia, and American Airlines flights.
The British Airways American Express Accelerating Business Card has a £250 annual fee.
