100,000 BA Miles Posted and the $75 Annual Fee Waived

The 100,000 miles from the Chase British Airways Card Promtion posted to my BA mileage account. I will probably use them for American Airlines flights within America to avoid the hefty taxes and fees when flying with British Airways. That was one great signup bonus. Congrats to all who got it.

To make it even sweeter... Chase was kind enough to waive my $75 annual fee! Now the 100,000 miles was totally free!

You can try to get your fee waived too. When activating the card, many people were mistakenly informed that the card would be free the first year. I sent Chase a message using Secure Message Center on Chase.com, asking for the fee to be removed. A few hours later I got a response that the fee will be refunded. Write a few lines mentioning that you were told that the first year would be free, and hopefully you will get the same response.

You don't need to pay the bill in order for the miles to post. My miles posted a couple of days after the statement closed.

they did not want to refund me the annual fee. stating that there is no british airways card without one.
any suggestion what to write back to them?

Reply that the point isn't if there is such a card or not, but rather that Chase informed people that the card would be free the first year

Therefore, you would appreciate it if they would refund the fee.

Also, the refund is just for the first year. You have no problem with the annual fee, it's just the first year that's meant to be free.

Good luck!
