American Express Membership Rewards bonus for transfers to British Airways and Virgin Atlantic

No comments

It’s good to be a London-based airline, at least if your frequent flyers want to transfer in American Express points.

From now until year-end, receive a 20% bonus on points transfers from the American Express Membership Rewards program to British Airways, and a 30% bonus on transfers to Virgin Atlantic.

These periodic bonus opportunities are a very effective way to get the most from your American Express Membership Rewards points.

Here are a few expert tips:

  • Remember that British Airways levies hefty fuel surcharges on some award tickets
  • British Airways Avios points can be redeemed on partner airlines, including in the Oneworld alliance
  • Virgin Atlantic points can also be redeemed on other Virgin brand airlines, such as Virgin America and Virgin Australia
  • Virgin also has airline partners, including Air New Zealand, Hawaiian Airlines, Jet Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines and South African Airways
