Jun 4 Update: Amex Canada not changing conversion rate to British Airways like in the U.S. and Not all Travel Points and Hybrid Credit Cards are created equal

Good news today for those who convert Membership Rewards points to British Airways!

News, Tips & Tricks
There is news in the U.S. that is blowing up and that is the change in the conversion rate from American Express Membership Rewards to British Airways Executive Club. As of October 1st those living to the South of us will lose their 1:1 conversion rate in favour (or should I say favor) of 1.25:1 ratio where they convert 250 MR points to 200 Avios. I reached out to American Express here in Canada and the good news is there is no plan for them to follow suit and will keep the 1:1 ratio.

And if you missed it somehow we released an updated and bigger version of our Yoga Infographic looking at the flexibiility of proprietary travel rewards credit card programs! We built it into a new feature that looks at just how flexibile or inflexible these programs are. You can find the entire feature at
