You can get a 40% bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios until January 31, 2015.
These bonuses don’t happen very often. It’s been over a year since American Express has had a British Airways transfer bonus.
This is a very good deal! Especially for folks who use their British Airways Avios points for award tickets on partners, such as short-haul, domestic flights on American Airlines, US Airways, or Alaska Airlines.
British Airways Avios Are Best Used on Partner Airlines!
You’ll get 1,400 Avios points for every 1,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points you transfer.
And with this bonus, you could get a domestic round-trip, coach class ticket for just 7,000 points. I’ll show you how!
Did you know that you can fly around the world by applying for just 3 credit cards and paying $89 in annual fees?
By applying for 2 Citi American Airlines cards and the Barclaycard US Airways card, you’ll earn 150,000 miles (plus extra from meeting minimum spending requirements). And that’s more than enough for a round-the-world trip!
3 Cards Get You a Round-the-World Trip!
Depending on your routing, you might even have miles left over! I’ll show you how to do it.
Are you planning a trip to Hawaii?
Via, Mommy Points, The Kauai Humane Society needs your help.
Even if you are NOT interested in adopting a dog, you can help save a dog’s life without paying a dime!
If you’re flying on Alaska Airlines and returning non-stop to 1 of these West Coast cities:
- San Diego
You can help the Kauai Humane Society shuttle a dog from Kauai to the mainland where the dog has a much better chance of being adopted.
It’s easy and free!
You Could Save the Day for Dogs Who Need a Home and It Won’t Cost You a Dime!
So how can you help?
If you live in the US and collect British Airways miles (called Avios), most likely you’ve signed-up in the British Airways Executive Club frequent flyer program. That program is open to folks worldwide, regardless of where you live.
But there’s another Avios program that is open to UK residents only. And sometimes they run different promotions and sales from the British Airways Executive Club program. But to take advantage of these promotions, and transfer Avios from your British Airways Executive Club account, you’ll need to jump through a few hoops.
I’ll show you how to sign-up for UK Avios so you can get the EXTRA deals shown only to UK residents!
