American Express and British Airways are running a limited time offer to give 50% more Avios to those transferring Membership Rewards points between now and October 10, 2016.
This is a great opportunity for those looking to take short haul domestic or last minute flights on American Airlines as British Airways is a oneworld partner. I particularly like British Airways and American Airlines for short haul trips as they discount short distance flights. British Airways is also great for booking last minute travel as they do not have a late booking fee, saving you $75 per ticket.
- A trip between New York City and Washington DC would normally cost 12,500 Amex Membership Rewards. When transferring points with this promotion the same flight would cost just 8,500 Amex Membership Rewards points. This can save hundred of dollars, especially on last minute bookings.
Although Amex and British Airways offers similar promotions regularly, this is one to go after as the bonuses is 20% higher than the typical offer.
