30% Transfer Bonus for RBC Rewards (Avion only) to British Airways Executive Club is back until December 31

Many of you have been asking when this bonus would return as you took
advantage of that great RBC Avion card sign up offer we had featured on
our site earlier this year (and the new one that just launched earlier this week) We are happy to let you know this much
transfer bonus from RBC Rewards to
British Airways Executive Club is back.  As we have now become accustomed to, the bonus offer is 30%. It really looks like 50% has gone the way of the dodo.

The offer is for all of you RBC Avion cardholders (Infinite, Infinite Privilege and
Platinum) and runs until December 31. Despite the BA devaluations and only being 30%, this
promotion is still a decent deal as BA Avios are a great option
for flights to
Asia (via Cathay Pacific), short to medium haul within North America 
(short haul offer is great on Alaska Airlines or American Airlines
see this post here) and even though huge surcharges are
added to their UK/Europe redemptions they can still be an alright value
because of this bonus based on your spend with the credit card
(see my post about Earn & Burn
for an explanation). As always though with any frequent flyer program
you will have to be flexible in your options when redeeming due to seat
availability issues (ie it may be hard to get tickets to Europe in
Summer etc.) so take this into consideration before transferring.

Also consider reading our post on  How you can easily get a free flight between Toronto and Dublin, Ireland (pre taxes/fees) or 4 flights for $240+fees as this transfer bonus will work well with it. With the 30% you only have to
transfer 20,000 RBC Rewards points to get to the 26,000 Avios level to
redeem for these Dublin flights. Compare this to the 65,000 RBC Rewards
points it would take to get the same flight and you can quickly see why
there is value in the BA program. Heck if you have 65,000 RBC Rewards
Points that’s three flights to Dublin and back! Remember as well that Aer Lingus is launching Montreal-Dublin flights next year and those will start as low as 20,000 Avios round trip in Economy!
