Can You Convert the AMEX Blue Card to an AMEX Everyday Card to Transfer Your Points to Travel Partners?

Million Mile Secrets reader, RS, commented:

Can I convert my American Express Blue card (10 years old) to an AMEX EveryDay card?  Currently the points are not much value to me other than cash.  I have collected a lot of points from Costco purchases and would love to be able to transfer them to airline and hotel partners.

I would lose history if the card is converted right?  What happens to my points?

Yes, you should be able to convert your card!

Save 4,000 British Airways Avios Points for Short Flights With This Trick!

I wrote that British Airways will be eliminating 1 of their best award deals by increasing the cost of short-haul (under 650 miles) partner flights in North America.

Currently it costs 4,500 British Airways Avios points for a 1-way, short-haul coach award flight on Alaska Airlines and American Airlines in the US.

After February 2, 2016, this will increase to 7,500 British Airways Avios points each way. Many folks are looking for an affordable substitute for award travel on flights under 650 miles.

While British Airways Avios points are still a good deal, there’s an alternative!  By transferring British Airways Avios points to their partner, Iberia, you can book short-haul, round-trip coach award flights in the US for fewer points!

Hooray! There’s Still a Way to Get a Cheaper Deal on Short-Haul Award Flights in the US Using British Airways Avios Points!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Robert, commented:

Hello Daraius!  Could you do a post or list here all of the airlines that don’t assess fuel surcharges for award tickets?  Thanks for all that you do.

Hi Robert!  That sounds like a good idea!
