Amex is offering a new transfer bonus. You can now get 30% more Flying Club miles when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 5/22/17. Flying Club is the loyalty program of Virgin Atlantic.
- Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.
- Redeem for this exclusive offer from 12:00 a.m. MT on April 17, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. MT on May 22, 2017.
- Additional Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles will be awarded at the time of transfer.
The normal transfer rate between the two programs is 1:1 so this bonus gives you 1,300 Virgin Atlantic Miles for every 1,000 Membership Rewards points that you transfer.
Virgin Atlantic miles are not the most valuable, especially after the January devaluation, so you should probably skip this one. However it might be useful to some that have a specific redemption in mind. It usually takes up to two days for the points to transfer.
