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

- You must be enrolled in the British Airways Executive Club in order to participate in this offer; visit to enroll.
- Minimum transfer of 1,000 Membership Rewards points into BA Miles.
- Redeem for this exclusive onetime offer by December 31, 2010, to receive 30% bonus BA Miles. - Bonus BA Miles will be awarded with the original transfer. Enrollment in a participating Frequent Flyer program is required.
- Allow up to 24 hours for transfer and bonus BA Miles to be awarded.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
