Domestic Round-Trip for 7,000 Points With AMEX to British Airways Transfer Bonus!

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.

And with this bonus, you could get a domestic round-trip, coach class ticket for just 7,000 points.  I’ll show you how!
