More news from Diamond Club as the programme is slowly being wound down in its current form:
No miles for spending with the following ex-Partners with immediate effect:
- Earning and spending your destinations miles on bmi hotels (Expedia Portal)
- Earning and spending your destinations miles on car hire with Europcar
- Earning destinations miles with Purple Parking
If you want to convert your Diamond Club miles for Gifts and Treats (Why? They’ll be perfectly good Avios soon enough), you’ve got until 17 June 2012.
For those who have or used Electronic Gold Upgrade Vouchers (eGUV’s), those as of today are now worthless and have been withdrawn and you will no longer be able to use this on any flights with immediate effect.
Lifetime BMI Golds have also been delivered the bad news that they’ve been accepting: British Airways will only match for a minimum of 1 year Gold for a lifetime BMI Gold (treated as the rest of the BMI Golds).
BMI with BA today have also confirmed they’ll be allowing Diamond Club Destination Miles to Avios conversions, at a rate of 1:1 with an only tool. The tool will be available from 3 July 2012, to allow transfers between Diamond Club and Executive Club accounts.
Overall, it’s not surprising these changes are as the wind-down begins and aircraft transfer, with members expected to transfer over in due course to BA’s Executive Club.
