Received this question from ML:

I am planning to close my British Airways Credit Card.  Now I have 8000 Avios balance in my British Airways Executive Club account. What could I do with it?

There are two beauties in British Airways. 

  1. British Airways has award ticket that  costs as little as 7500 Avios for US domestic travel and 4500 Avios for international travel.
  2. British Airways allows you to household accounts.  It is FREE to create, and means you can pool your Avios with up to six people who live with you, letting you make full use of the Avios.  Although it mentions in the site that household individuals have to live together, British Airways does not enforce this rule and anyone can household together.

Don’t waste your miles.  It is always a way to keep it active and alive.  Please ask before your miles expire.
