I always check membershiprewards.com on the first of the month for new transfer bonuses. This one caught my eye, because its asbolutely ridiculous. Air Tran is running a “special” discount of a whopping 5 points per credit. Per their advertising the normal 1,125 transfer ratio is now 1,120:

This basically amounts to a less than .5% transfer “bonus”!

Well, its actually just a glitch, because when you click through, it clearly states there is a 25% bonus, which makes sense because Amex transfers to AirTran usually at 1 credit per 1,400 points:
Anyway, I got a chuckle out of the sloppy programming job.

    No it’s not an April Fool’s joke. The Air Tran joke has been up for over a month. Embarrassing.
