American Express Offering 50% Bonus on British Airways Avios Points
American Express Membership Rewards has announced a 50% bonus on point transfers to the British Airways Executive Club frequent flyer program. Transfers can be made in increments of 1,000 Membership Rewards points
American Express and BA most recently offered a 30% bonus in November.
For example, a round-trip business-class award ticket from New York JFK to London costs only 80,000 Avios or, with the bonus applied, 54,000 Membership Rewards points. (You’ll even end up with 1,000 extra Avios since 54,000 MR points converts to 81,000 Avios.) The same trip in first class costs only 120,000 Avios, or 80,000 MR points.
The bonus offer is valid until May 31, 2012.
