[PROMOTION] 25% Transfer Bonus from American Express to British Airways Avios

It took a while, but American Express Membership Rewards is finally offering a transfer bonus! You can now receive a 25% bonus when you transfer Membership Reward points to British Airways Executive Club for Avios points.

The last time we saw an American Express and Avios bonus was from March 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013, but it was a 50% transfer offer. The current offer is valid until September 30, 2015.

Normally you can transfer at a 1:1 ratio at a minimum of 1.000 points. With the promotion the same 1,000 Membership Rewards gets you 1,250 Avios.

I am really happy to see this promotion, not really because it is a good promotion because we have seen 50% transfer bonuses, but because we finally see some signs of life from American Express and one of its transfer partners.


      1. Oopsiee.. This took me to Candian website. For a sec, I was so happy thinking that its for US. 🙁

  1. And don’t forget that on October 1, 2015 the Amex -> Avios transfer is undergoing a devaluation from 1,000 Membership Rewards Points to 1,000 Avios to 250 Membership Rewards gets you 200 Avios. With this deal ending on September 30th this is as good as you’re going to get.

    1. I believe that it may only be for the U.S. transfer ratio. I believe the Canadian one is remaining untouched for the time being.

  2. does not work for US. 1:1 ratio

    not to mention the last transfer bonus was 40% and within the last 7 months

    1. Might be a targeted thing then – I just looked and see the bonus offer on my US based AmEx card.

    1. I know!! But my expectations have gone so low that anything is better than nothing at this point.
