Membership Rewards 40% British Airways transfer bonus!

American Express Membership rewards has announced a 40% transfer bonus to British Airways Avios through January 31, 2014! This means if you transfer 100,000 Membership Rewards points you will receive 140,000 British Airways Avios.  This is one of the best transfer bonuses for BA Avios I have seen.  I jumped on a 30% transfer bonus to BA right before I cancelled my Amex Gold card and netted a cool 122,000 Avios which I then used for my trip to Mexico and many more trips as well. If you have read our article on When to use American AAdvantage Miles vs British Airways Avios then you know how valuable BA Avios can be!  I use them all the time for domestic and Central American travel and you should too!

Amex Membership Rewards Transfer 5

If you don’t know how to do this then check out our article on How to transfer your American Express Membership Rewards points to Airline Miles.  This turns the 40,000 Amex Platinum bonus into a 56,000 Avios bonus and the 25,000 Amex PRG Bonus into a 35,000 Avios bonus.  Both of those bonuses are lower than ones I have seen so now probably isn’t the right time to apply though.  But if you have an Amex card that has membership rewards then now is a great time to transfer some miles to Avios!
