Last seen this past spring, the Diners Club to British Airways
conversion bonus is back but with a higher bonus but the not highest we’ve seen. Last summer the
bonus was 50% and for this spring it is 30%, this time it is right in between at 40%. I may actually take advantage of it with a small transfer even though its not 50%. I’m still holding out for an Alaska transfer bonus from Diners but it has been a long time since they have offered one.
If you are thinking of redeeming soon for travel on British
Airways or any of their oneworld partners this may be the time to
This one is for those select few of us who have held onto to our Diners Club Mastercards
as the card isn’t technically available for new applications. The regular transfer rate is
1,250 Club Rewards Points to 1,000 Avios so with this bonus that equates
to 1,400 Avios. That equates to 1.12 Avios per dollar spent on the card.
Nothing special and it’s not great like the 1.25 you can earn on everyday spend with The Platinum Card from American Express or the category bonuses of 2 Avios per dollar with The American Express Gold Rewards Card
and that doesn’t even take into account the transfer bonus that Amex has right now. You can even more Avios with The American Express Cobalt card but for Diners it is still better than the regular transfer rate. Don’t forget that RBC has a transfer bonus as well right now to British Airways! Heck if you have multiple cards from these issuers you can really boost your Avios balance right now!
Remember you can use British Airways Executive Club to
fly to many destinations in the U.S. from Canada for between 15,000 and
25,000 Avios round trip (See here for details on that)
40% Bonus Avios when you convert Diners Club Club Rewards points to British Airways Executive Club. Full details Until Dec 31, 18
