You can transfer your AMEX Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and Starwood Preferred Guest points to the Flying Blue program to take advantage of these sales.
After the discount, here’s a look at how much you’ll pay for 1-way award flights between Europe and:
- Houston in coach – 18,750 Flying Blue miles
- Montreal in World Business Class – 46,875 Flying Blue miles
- Toronto in Business Class – 46,875 Flying Blue miles

You Can Save 25% on Award Flights to Europe This Winter
To get the discount, book by September 30, 2015, for travel from November 1, 2015, to December 31, 2015.
Keep in mind, Flying Blue awards also come with taxes and fees. So do the math to see if this is a good deal for you!
Fly to the City of Lights in Coach for Just 18,750 Flying Blue Miles and ~$94 1-Way
If you need Flying Blue miles, you can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and Starwood Preferred Guest points.
And when you transfer Starwood points to airlines in increments of 20,000 points, you’ll get a 5,000 point bonus.
So you could sign-up for the Starwood Preferred Guest from American Express personal and small business cards, and earn the increased sign-up bonus of 30,000 Starwood points on each card when you complete the minimum spending.
Then when you transfer the 60,000 Starwood points to Flying Blue in 20,000 point increments, you’ll have 75,000 Flying Blue miles (60,000 miles + 15,000 bonus miles).
With this month’s Flying Blue Promo Awards, that’s enough for 2 round-trip coach tickets or a 1-way Business Class flight to Europe!
