American Express is now offering a 50% transfer bonus on transfers of AMEX Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios until 10/10/2016. This is a good deal that doesn’t come around that often, although we’ve seen it before.
Back in October 1st, Amex reduced the transfer rate to Avios by 20%, to 250 MR = 200 Avios. With this increased offer, you will get 250 MR =
200 300 Avios. That’s a transfer rate of 1.2 instead of 0.8, but just a 20% increase compared to pre-devaluation.
Membership Rewards points must be transferred in increments of 250.
If you have a redemption in mind, then this is probably the best time to transfer MR points to Avios. You won’t see a higher transfer rate.
