Get a free flights from your normal spending with the Lloyds TSB airmiles Duo credit card.

Massive new credit card freebie! Do normal spending for totally free flights
Get a free BA Europe return or earn serious AirMiles towards long haul trips, provided you've a reasonable credit score & as there's no time limit on when you use it, the strikes won't impact it.

New Freebie: With Lloyds Airmiles Duo you get both an Amex & Mastercard and until June apply via Lloyds* website and for the first 3 mths you earn a massively accelerated one AirMile per £1 spent on the Amex (max 1,500). After that it's back to the normal 1 per £10 spent (still reasonable).

Keep it free: Set up a direct debit to repay in full every month, so there's no interest, or it's 15.9% APR. Then use it for your normal day-to-day spending to build up AirMiles.

1,500 AirMiles gets... Two BA Paris/Amsterdam returns or one return to most European (Italy, Spain, German, Czech Republic etc) airports BA flies to, including ALL taxes & charges.

Easier but with strings: Get the same card via AirMiles* website, spend just £10 on the Amex for a 1,500 Miles voucher, yet here you must book at least one night in a hotel via AirMiles website, which can be costly.

More Freebie Flights: With BMI Amex* spend £250 in 90 days for a Europe Biz return or on Flybe spend just £1 for two standard flights. Yet with both, taxes aren't included and can be large & repay in full or the APRs are 16.9% &18.9%.

Just found this, it shows how many points are needed for different destinations - airmiles.co.uk/spend

Good luck flying with BA . . .

I've never owned a credit card before but everyone says I should get one just for the security for when I book holidays etc, this seems like a good deal. So if I spent £1500 on the credit card, my direct debit that I set up will automatically deduct £1500 from my bank account so I don't get caught up interest?

Nice if they would stop striking.

Yes. If you're getting a credit card, phone as soon as you've got it and ask to set up a direct debit to pay in full every month (they all offer this but few advertise it) and then use it exactly as if it were a debit card. Do NOT use it to borrow money! (There's plenty of 0% APR cards around if you wanted to do that).

Having a credit card and paying in full and on time every month costs you nothing, earns you rewards and improves your credit rating in case you need a loan (or a mortgage) in future.

Thanks for your help!

Shame i don't use credit cards - heat added

Looks like a great deal initially but after the introductory offer I'm less convinced. I do pretty much all my shopping on my Amex card and reckon I spend about £7000/year. So I'd get 700 airmiles per year, almost enough for 1 European flight. Living in Glasgow that presumably means to London. So every 4 years me and mu family could fly to London? Alternatively I'd earn about £300 in cash on my current Amex card; we could stay right here and eat a ot of chips 'n' cheese!

Hot if you're gonna spend £1.5k in the next 3 monthswith businesses that accept Amex.

Oh yeah, and it has one of those annoying 0% APR on balance transfers for 6 months. Except that there's a fee of 3% so that's actually an APR of 6%!

What amex card do you have? im on the platinum cashback card which gives you 0.5-1.5 % max, so a £7000 spend will give you £70? unless you have a different amex card
