The buyer on the main site won't take them?

The brokers, who usually do longer-haul stuff, are shying away from Avios now.

Good luck!

I'm not very familiar with BA's ff program so please excuse me if this is a dumb question
I searched and nothing came up.
Is there any way to extend the expiration date on BA miles?

If you have the CC, even spending a $1.00 would do it.

In short, you need some activity.

It may, if you let the charge sit for long enough that the points get credited.

+1

I think that should also work.

Point expire at the end of this month but i guess it can't hurt to try. Is it confirmed that its' considered activity?

AMEX transfers to BA and the transfer likely counts as "activity."
