RBC is offering a 30% transfer bonus to British Airways’ Executive Club, which is the same offer from just over a year ago. Conversion bonuses are an amazing way to boost account balances without any extra cost or effort (aside from having the transferable points readily available).
The promotion began on October 3, 2022 and is coming to an end next week on November 16, 2022.
Keep in mind that the most recent Avion points that are pending only posts after the monthly closing statement, not before. So if your next statement does not close on time, you will want convert before the November 16 deadline.
Minimum transfer requirement
There is a 10,000 Avion points minimum transfer requirement, with increments of 1 point thereafter. With a 1 to 1 transfer ratio, normally 10,000 Avion points equates to 10,000 Avios. Now with the 30% additional bonus, the minimum 10,000 Avion transfer now nets 13,000 Avios. The transfer bonuses can really add it with large conversions (e.g. 50,000 Avion comes out to 65,000 Avios, and so on).
Avios have become a valuable currency to Canadians as it is arguable the second easiest frequent flyer programs (after Air Canada’s Aeroplan) for Canadians to accrue without flying as there are a wide variety of ways to earn. Then Avios can be redeem to a wide variety of rewards options, especially being a member of Oneworld Alliance. So it is nice to see this bonus opportunity again!
