Amex Membership Rewards Avios Transfer Bonus – Analysis

40% is a great transfer bonus. You get a ratio of 1:1.4, but we have seen bonus up to 50% in the past. This is still a good opportunity to pad your Avios account balance.

Avios are quite useful for shorter flights around the world and North America. Even some longer routes make a good amount of sense to book with Avios (on routes with no full surcharges), especially considering the nice 40% bonus.


This Amex Membership Rewards Avios Transfer Bonus usually surfaces at least once a year.

  1. I’m looking at booking three tickets to Israel in February 2020. I have United, Delta, and American Airlines miles. I also have amex and ultimate reward. I have been redeeming miles for years but have never transferred amex points or ultimate rewards to BA or flying blue, etc to book international travel. I am a little hesitant to try it because I don’t feel confident in locating the awards, transferring the points over and getting the award seats on these flights while they’re there. I have read MANY articles about this. Any advice?
