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.
Via One Mile at a Time, the AARP discount on British Airways flights has been extended through October 31, 2015.
AARP Members Can Save up to $400 on British Airways Flights
Even if you aren’t 50, you can still join AARP and save up to $400 on British Airways flights.
The 20,000 point sign-up bonus (double the usual offer) for the Chase Freedom will end on December 17, 2014.
Chase Freedom is 1 of my favorite no annual fee cards because of the 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards point categories.
And because you can transfer your points to partner airlines and hotels when you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Plus, or Ink Bold.
The Chase Freedom Is Great for Earning 5X Points on Rotating Categories Each Quarter
But should you rush to apply now?
Are you planning a ski trip or an escape to the tropics in the New Year? If so, you could get away for fewer miles!
United Airlines is having a sale on award tickets to certain US cities, plus Hawaii, Canada, and Mexico. You’ll save 20% off the usual number of miles required for a saver level coach class award ticket. But you have to book by December 30, 2014.
There are also discounts on United Airlines Business Class partner award tickets to Europe, India, and Central Asia. But that deal might not last long!
You Could Fly to Colorado for a Ski Getaway for 20% Fewer Miles
There are a few restrictions on the 20% off sale. I’ll explain!
