Reminder: 35% Bonus On Transfers From Membership Rewards Points To British Airways Avios Ends Friday!

If you’re interested in cashing in the 35% bonus on transfers from American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios, the last day to do so is this Friday, June 7th.  I’ve discussed how to use Avios for amazing redemptions on short/medium-haul American Airlines flights (they’re better than American’s own miles!), so if you have any flights under […]

Notes And Updates For May 28, 2013

View from the Wing has a great write-up about the 5,000 and 10,000-point bonuses that some Amex charge card holders can earn by enrolling in Amex’s “Pay Over Time” feature.  I didn’t qualify for the bonus — and it’s unclear who does — but some people are reporting success and it’s certainly worth a try […]

The 75,000-Point Offer On The American Express Business Gold Rewards Card is Back. Again.

A couple weeks ago, I posted about an important mistake on the application landing page for the American Express Blue card.  The application page stated that Membership Rewards points earned on the Blue card could be transferred to American Express’s airline and hotel partners: Unfortunately, that’s simply not true: Membership Rewards points held in a […]
