American Express Membership Rewards- 30% Transfer Bonus to British Airways

Nov 2, 2010

This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.

Until December 31, 2010, get a 30% bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways.  No registration is needed (the ratio shows 1,300 BA = 1,000 Amex).

While British Airways has a somewhat inflated award chart, there are some gems. I just booked a client on JFK-MIA-EZE roundtrip in business class for 80,000 BA miles (vs. 100k AA). With this promo, you’d only need 62,000 miles for that award- not a bad deal! British Airways also has upgrade, one-way and cash and miles awards.

And as I wrote about here, the new British Airways first class cabin is absolutely fantastic.
