RBC is one again offering a 30% transfer bonus to British Airways’ Executive Club. This offer has been running every 6 months ago lately. Conversion bonuses are an amazing way to boost account balances without any extra cost or effort (aside from already having transferable points readily available).
The promotion run from October 2, 2023 until November began on November 13, 2023. During the pandemic, we rarely saw transfer bonuses. Now it seems like the trend is back in action.
Minimum transfer requirement
There is a 10,000 RBC Avion points minimum transfer requirement, with goes in 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).
Notes that it may take up to 4 weeks for Avion points to be converted and for the Avios to appear in the British Airways Executive Club account.
Note that cardholders do need to have a valid RBC Avion co-branded card to qualify for the transfer bonus. The Avion cards alphabetically are as follows:
- RBC Avion Visa Business Infinite
- RBC Avion Visa Infinite
- RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege
- RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege for Private Banking account
- RBC Avion Visa Platinum
- RBC Commercial Avion Visa
- RBC Royal Bank Visa Business Platinum Avion
