British Airways Executive Club Award Sale - Save 40% on award tickets between Canada and London!


Wow the American Express 25% transfer bonus from Membership Rewards to British Airways Executive Club just got a whole lot better! How so?

British Airways has just launched a reward sale that discounts Executive Club award tickets between Canada and London by 40%.  Simply book your award travel by September 27 for travel between October 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016.

Here is Toronto to London for travel November 11-18:

This means you can get this round trip flight for 12,500 Membership Rewards Points (15,625 avios) plus the fees and taxes. Sure the taxes and fees have always been consider high but now that you only have to use 60% of the regular amount of points and add in the 25% bonus from the Amex transfer this is a deal to consider! For example the same flights bought with cash would cost $973.68 so the redemption will give you a 2.85% return on your Membership Rewards points (saving the $360) or 5.70% if all those points were acquired with the 2x multiplier on the American Express Gold Rewards Card! If this sale wasn't on I personally wouldn't look at these redemptions as a very good option to use this 25% transfer bonus on.
