A quick heads up that tomorrow is the last day to initiate a transfer of American Express Membership Rewards points from American Express to British Airways, Virgin Flying Club or Club Carlson to benefit from the (targeted) 20% – 30% transfer bonuses.
Personally, I have transferred 53,334 points to Club Carlson. With the 25% bonus, that will get me 200,000 points which is 4 x 5-star hotel nights in London. These will be handy for friends and family over the coming year. Note that these points took five days to arrive.
I also sent 19,000 points over to Virgin Flying Club. That takes my balance to 50,000 and gives me the flexibility to book a one-way in Upper Class to most places, if I get a chance to get away without the family. It would also be a good partner for my 50,000 American Airlines miles.
I didn’t send anything to BA as my Avios balance is high enough for the time being.
