If you travel frequently or spend 30K/year it's a good deal. 30K/yr gets you a free companion ticket. I would say trying to use the BA web site to redeem miles isn't the best way to go. Call the BA Executive Club, you'll be on hold for a while, and get them to help you schedule your flight. You won't be disappointed.

We signed up for this card a year ago to earn British Airway bonus miles. A year later, we're going cancel it for two reasons. One, BA is devaluating their AVIOS program by 50 to 100% meaning it will take 50% more AVIOS for a business class ticket and 100% more AVIOS for a first class ticket, starting April 28th, 2015. This is quite the devaluation of  AVIOS points. Then the cherry on top is we just received a letter from the CC company stating that charges will earn one AVIOS per dollar from 1.25 AVIOS per dollar charged. There are better FF programs and CC programs out there now.
