50% Bonus British Airways Avios Points for Amex Membership Rewards transfers

Up here in the Great White North we don't see many American Express Membership Rewards transfer bonuses like they do in the U.S. or even places like Australia. So when one comes along it is newsworthy and in this case the deal is pretty good as well!

Normally when you convert 1,000 Membership Reward Points into the British Airways Executive Club program you receive 1,000 Avios points, with this promotion you will receive 1,500 Avios points. On a normal spend with your Amex card to get 1.5 BA Avios points is pretty amazing but if you take into account multipliers from The Platinum Card from American Express or even more so the American Express Gold Rewards card this a really great conversion promo! If you are one of those cardholders who has used your Gold Rewards Card to earn 2x points for Gas, Grocery, Drug Store and Travel purchases this transfer bonus actually turns into 3 Avios per dollar spent! What does this mean? Well you only need to transfer 6,000 Membership Reward points (as little as $3000 in spending on the Gold Rewards Card) to redeem for a British Airways short haul partner round trip flight between Toronto and New York.  Some other options for Avios points use include
- Canada to London for 40-50,000 Avios depending on which city you leave from
- Use Avios to upgrade fares to the next fare class, ie purchase Economy to London and redeem miles to upgrade to Economy Plus for 20-25,000 Avios depending on which city you leave from

This offer runs until May 31, 2012. For complete details visit American Express Membership Rewards
