Update:The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.

For a limited time, you can transfer points to Qatar Airways Privilege Club and receive up to 25% bonus points. This sale includes U.S.-based banks HSBC, Citi, and American Express — but it won’t last long.

Here’s everything you need to know to take advantage of this offer.

Limited-Time Transfer Bonuses to Qatar

The first of 2 transfer bonuses ends on November 30, 2023. From now until the end of the month, U.S.-based travelers can transfer points from HSBC rewards and Citi ThankYou Points to Qatar Airways Privilege Club for a 25% bonus. You can also see a full list of participating international banks in this transfer bonus.

If you hold a Membership Rewards-earning American Express card, you can score a 10% bonus when transferring points to Qatar. This transfer bonus ends on December 3, 2023, giving you a little more time to make the transfer happen.

The Membership Rewards transfer bonus is offered by Qatar, not American Express, and isn’t advertised on Amex’s website. As always, points must be transferred in 1,000-point increments.

Note that Qatar says it could take up to 45 days for Avios to post to your Privilege Club account.

How To Earn Transferable Points

Transferable points from credit cards remain one of the best ways to travel on points and miles. Better yet, transfer bonuses like this one to Qatar help your points can go even further.

If you don’t have enough points to spare this time around, don’t worry. Transfer bonuses come around often and change from month to month.

If you’re in need of Amex or Citi points, you may be interested in the American Express® Gold Card or the Citi Premier® Card.

Capital One and Chase also offer credit cards that earn transferrable points, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card. With Chase Ultimate Rewards and Capital One Venture Miles, you can transfer to dozens of airline and hotel travel partners.

Bottom Line:

Transfer HSBC points and Citi ThankYou Points for a 30% bonus, or Amex Membership Rewards points for a 10% bonus to Qatar Airways Privilege Club for a limited time.

Final Thoughts

If you have Membership Rewards, ThankYou points, or HSBC points and you’ve been looking forward to a ride in a World’s Best airline, now’s your chance. If you’re on the fence and not sure how you could use Avios on Qatar, read the best ways to redeem them for the best value here.
