American Express runs limited time promotions from time to time with Membership Rewards. Two current bonus offers give members the chance to increase the number of points they can transfer to travel partners by 20-30%. The two transfer bonuses being offered now are a British Airways 20% bonus on transfers and a Virgin Atlantic 30% bonus on transfers. These are both for a limited time, so consider these bonuses if you were thinking about transferring American Express Member Rewards points to one of these programs.

British Airways 20% Transfer Bonus

American Express normally transfers points to British Airways Executive Club at a 1:1 ratio. With this limited time promotion, members will receive 1.2 Avios points for every 1 American Express Membership Rewards points transferred. British Airways Amex Transfer Bonus 2013

British Airways Avios Points are best used for short haul flights. For example, members can redeem as little as 4,500 Avios Points for a one-way coach award. Along with this decent 20% transfer bonus, it is easy to get Avios Points with the British Airways Visa Signature® Card that offers a 50,000 signup bonus
after meeting minimum spending requirements. The transfer offer is valid through December 31, 2013.

Virgin Atlantic 30% Transfer Bonus

American Express normally transfers points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club at a 1:1 ratio. With this limited time promotion, members will receive 1.3 Flying Club miles for every 1 American Express Membership Rewards points transferred. This offer is valid through November 30, 2013.

Virgin Atlantic rewards come with high taxes and fees, so consider that before transferring points to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account.

Bottom Line

If you were considering transferring points into British Airways Executive Club Avios points or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles, consider doing it during this promotional period.

  1. When using Virgin Atlantic miles to fly on Delta, then do you get a stop-over and open jaw like on regular Delta awards? Also, when using Virgin Atlantic miles to fly on ANA or Singapore Airlines, are there fuel surcharges?
