Introducing the world’s first current account to link with Avios
Track and maximise all your Avios in one place, straight from your Monese app. Plus exclusive and exciting benefits coming soon to you!
By Mihnea on February 17, 2019
In a world first, we’ve joined forces with Avios to seamlessly link this popular reward currency with your Monese account.
You can now link your British Airways Executive Club account to effortlessly track and manage your Avios balance, straight from your Monese app. Once connected, your Avios will appear as a separate account alongside your UK or European current account.
You can get a straightforward overview of how to make the most of your Avios – whether you’re collecting or spending – through a few simple taps. You can make the most of all your Avios, including those earned on any credit cards. All in one place. Via one, simple-to-use app.
We know our customers are people on the move, who love to travel the world. This partnership is a new, seamless financial and lifestyle management service. And we’ve designed it with mobile people like you in mind.
Exclusive Avios benefits
We’re not done yet! We have some very exciting Avios benefits in store for you, as we make the service even smarter and stronger over the coming weeks. These will be exclusive to Monese customers and will help you get the most out of collecting and spending your Avios.
Exclusive Avios benefits coming soon to your Monese app:
- Collect Avios for referring friends
- Exchange Avios with friends and family who are also using Monese
- Link your Monese card to Avios in-store offers to collect Avios every time you shop at selected retailers
What are Avios?
Avios are reward points that you can collect when you spend money on flights, hotels and car rentals with British Airways and hundreds of Avios partner brands (you can find a full list here).
Once you’ve collected enough, you can spend your Avios on rewards such as flights, upgrades, hotel stays, travel experiences, or even cases of champagne!
How it works
Fire up your Monese app and head over to the ‘Account’ section. Tap on the ‘Avios’ button and follow the on-screen instructions – you’ll be asked to log in with your British Airways Executive Club account, or create a new one on the spot.
Once set up, your Avios account will appear in your Monese app as a separate account, just like your UK or European ones, and you can seamlessly switch between them whenever you like. If you don’t have a Monese account yet, there’s never been a better time to sign up!
Here are Norris (our CEO and Founder) and Andrew Crawley (CEO of Avios Group) to tell you more about our plans:
We’re extremely excited to launch this integration, giving you a smart, portable and seamless way to manage your lifestyle, as well as your finances. Stay tuned for more on this, as we continue to build a financial service that helps you make better decisions, wherever you may be in the world.
