Today’s the last day to take advantage of two bonus transfer opportunities:

    • 50% bonus when transferring Amex Membership Rewards to British Airways Avios
    • 50% bonus when transferring InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) points to United Airlines MileagePlus

 

Amex Membership Rewards to British Airways Avios

British Airways Avios are great for short-haul domestic travel as you can book American Airlines flights using them. The advantage of this is Avios short-haul flights can be booked with fewer miles than American Airlines short-haul reward flights (7,500 miles vs. 12,500 one way) AND you don’t have to pay the $75 dollar late booking fee. If you would like to take advantage of this promotion click here and follow the steps. To learn more about great redemption options and how to accrue more Avios check out Lee’s post.

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) to United Airlines MileagePlus 

Taking advantage of this promotion will give you 3,000 United miles for 10,000 IHG points. Generally, this promotion doesn’t make much sense but there are exceptions. If you have a lot of IHG points but not Chase or United, you could take advantage of this promotion to accrue MileagePlus miles as this would be cheaper than buying the miles from United. If you have a great redemption in mind and need a few more miles this promotion could be a great option. If you would like to take advantage of this promotion click here and follow the steps.

Final Thoughts

The Amex MR to British Airways Avios promotion is great as it can save you both cash and miles when booking short-haul or last minute flights, I have already taken advantage of this promotion and feel many can benefit from it. The IHG to United promotion is less advantageous but can still be worthwhile depending on the situation you’re in and your upcoming travel.
