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!
Until December 21, 2014, American Express has increased the sign-up bonus on the Gold Delta SkyMiles (personal) and Gold Delta SkyMiles (business) cards.
On the application page, click on “Are You a Business Owner?” to see business offer.
You’ll get 50,000 miles after you spend $1,000 in the 1st 3 months. And if you make a Delta purchase in the 1st 3 months, you’ll also get a $50 statement credit.
Normally, the sign-up bonus is 30,000 miles, so this is a very good deal!
These aren’t my links, but I’ll always tell you about better offers, even if they don’t earn us a commission.
Ending Soon: 50,000 Mile Sign-Up Bonus and $50 Statement Credit on the AMEX Delta Gold Card
The annual fee of $95 is waived for the 1st year. But there’s less than 1 week left to apply.
