One of our favorite transfer bonuses is back.

Right now you can get a 30% bonus when you transfer your American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways Executive Club Avios or Iberia Plus Avios.

That can represent huge savings on award flights, so let’s take a look at the offer.

Offer Details

Normally Amex Membership Rewards points transfer to British Airways Executive Club and Iberia Plus Avios at a ratio of 1:1, but right now members get 30% more Avios when transferring points.

Amex Membership Rewards points can be earned from Rakuten, everyday spending, and welcome offers on cards such as The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, and American Express® Gold Card.

This offer is valid through August 31, 2023, so that is almost 2 months to find some flights and then earn and burn some MR points.

British Airways Sweet Spots

British Airways has always had some sweet spots, especially on short-haul U.S. domestic flights, but with Qatar Airways adopting Avios as its rewards currency, there are even more opportunities now.

Thanks to that partnership, you can book and fly the famous Qsuites on long-haul international flights for as low as 70,000 Avios each way! That means with this 30% bonus promotion you could be flying in one of the world’s best business class seats for just 54,000 Membership Rewards points!

A cash fare for a one-way business class flight from New York (JFK) to Doha (DOH) is over $10,000, so you would be getting an incredible deal and one of the best point redemptions out there.

Hot Tip:

Our transfer partner calculator makes it easy to see how many points you’ll receive for your redemption!

Final Thoughts

Having a flexible point currency like American Express Membership Rewards points is great for opportunities like this 30% bonus to British Airways or Iberia.

By taking advantage of transfer bonuses, you can leverage the already attractive partner rewards structure for additional discounts that can unlock bucket-list-level redemptions.

If you have been waiting for a good opportunity to book Qatar Airways’ Qsuites, it doesn’t get any better than this.
