One thing many owners of hybrid credits cards look forward to are transfer bonuses. See hybrid cards offer points you can redeem via the credit card or give you the ability to transfer those points to frequent flyer and frequent guest programs and its transfer to those programs that are anticipated. Of the bonuses, people always look forward to the RBC Avion transfer bonus to British Airways Executive Club and this bonus, the American Express Membership Rewards transfer offer to British Airways Executive Club!
Much like the past the two the current bonus for transferring Membership Rewards points to British Airway Executive Club is 25%. The minimum transfer is 1,000 points with no stated maximum.
British Airways Executive Club offers many excellent redemption options which is why the transfer bonuses to the program always get so much attention. We talk about the North American redemptions in our feature Utilizing British Airways’ Executive Club for flights in North America which sees one way flights starting at only 7,500 Avios (15,000 round trip)
Another redemption to look at is the Toronto-Dublin option we seem to always bring up as that is only 26,000 Avios, or 21,000 Membership Rewards points with this transfer bonus. If you have the American Express Gold Rewards card that means you could only spend $10,500 on the card to get that latter flight. No other card could provide a flight to Ireland for that little amount of spending. Of course you then have the business class and first class redemption option on British Airways, Cathay Pacific and so many more of the oneworld Alliance airlines! Too many options to list here!
The good news is that if you travelling abroad British Airways still has
the 4,500 Avios Short Haul option in Europe and Asia so you can utilize
this bonus for those short hops overseas!

Personally I need to figure out how much I will want to transfer as I am also looking at taking advantage of the bonus for transferring Diners Club Club Rewards points to British Airways Executive Club!
Here are the best two cards for earning Membership Rewards Points and if you apply for them now and get your spending on them completed by mid-October you should still be able to get in on the transfer bonus!
