In light of the recent re-evaluation of the Membership Rewards transfer ratio to British Airways Avios, Amex is going the extra mile, and there is now a 40% bonus on transferring Membership Rewards points to Avios, so your transfers from Membership Rewards to either BA or Iberia Avios will net you 1.4 Avios for each Membership Rewards point.
Key Terms and Conditions
The offer is very straightforward with few terms and conditions:
- Offer is valid through September 17, 2017, at 11:59 pm MT
- Earn a 40% bonus on transfers with a minimum of 250 points, giving you 350 Avios
While generally it is not recommended to transfer or buy points speculatively, this promotion can be very handy. It is on the higher end of the usual Avios transfer bonuses, with the highest we have seen at 50%, so if you need to top up your Avios for a specific award redemption, now is the time to do it.
On the other hand, if you do not have any redemptions planned but you current Avios are getting close to expiring, prevent your Avios from expiring by transferring Membership Rewards points to your BA account, and resetting your expiry clock.
If you want to collect Avios directly and not transfer points from The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, you can always pick up the British Airways Visa Signature® Card, which will let you earn Avios directly for everyday spending.
The British Airways Avios program is one of the better frequent flyer programs out there. While it does not always have the best-priced awards, it does have some excellent sweet spots that may be worth exploiting. Whether or not you take advantage of this promotion depends on your travel plans, although in all likelihood quite a few people will be taking advantage of this offer.
