I’ve gotten several questions about the new British Airways Visa offered by Chase that I wrote about yesterday.
The most common one is about the annual fee. I speculated that it would remain $75, as the card is currently priced. But it’s a good question.
Jennifer Saranow Schultz has confirmed (in the comments to her post) at the New York Times’ Bucks Blog that the card will in fact still have the same $75 annual fee.
I’ve put a question out to Chase’s reps on this whether someone who has had a British Airwaays Visa in the past, but is not a current cardholder, might be eligible for the signup bonus?
Chase cards generally restrict signup bonuses to first-time cardholders, once for each card product. So whether a former BA Visa cardholder can receive the bonus for signing up for this card may depend on whether Chase consider this to be a better offer for the same card, of a new card product. But that’s just speculation. We’ll see what they say when they get back to me — I for one am hoping to take advantage of the 100,000 mile signup bonus, but I have had a British Airways Visa at one time in the distant past…
