A trip to the United Kingdom can be within reach with the latest British Airways and American Express offer. For a limited time, eligible American Express cardholders who are enrolled in the British Airways Executive Club can participate in this 30% bonus Avios offer. Here’s how to take advantage of the offer before it ends.
Earn 30% Bonus Avios
To earn the 30% bonus Avios, eligible cardholders must transfer American Express Membership Rewards® points to Avios. Here’s how to earn the bonus:
1. Click the ‘Transfer points’ link.
2. Scroll down to British Airways and click “Show Details.”
3. Click “Log In” under the British Airways section and log into your American Express Membership Rewards® account.
4. Link your British Airways Executive Club account (if you haven’t already) and enter the number of points you would like to transfer. You can get one here if you don’t have a British Airways Executive Club account, which is free to join.
Note that the minimum transfer amount is 1,000 Membership Rewards points. Additionally, this offer ends at 11:59 p.m. MT on 08/31/2023, so the transfer needs to be done before then.
While the Avios are generally awarded at the time of transfer, it can take up to 72 hours to complete the transfer. Once Membership Rewards points are transferred, they cannot be transferred back.
Benefits Of Joining The British Airways Executive Club
One of the many benefits of the British Airways Executive Club is the ability to pool your Avios with family or friends. Members can share Avios with up to six people who live in the same residence, including kids. Having a Household Account can help members travel and earn rewards.
Other benefits include earning Avios not only when flying British Airways but also when flying with their oneworld® airline partners. These partners include:
- Alaska Airlines
- American Airlines
- Cathay Pacific
- Japan Airlines
- Malaysia Airlines
- Qatar Airways
- Royal Air Maroc
- Royal Jordanian
- SriLankan Airlines
- Fiji Airways (oneworld connect Partner)
- Oman Air (future member)
Earning Avios isn’t limited to flying, either. Booking holidays, hotels and car rentals with British Airways Holidays also earn Avios. Additionally, several partner hotels, credit cards, car rental agencies and online shopping sites earn Avios. You can even earn Avios on airport parking and rail transfers!
Avios can be redeemed for upgrades, flights, hotels and car rentals. You can also pay for travel using part cash and part Avios.
However, note that Avios do expire after three years. To keep your Avios, collect, spend, buy or transfer at least one Avios every 36 months.
A 30% transfer bonus on Avios can help you travel more. You can also visit British Airways’ Avios flight calculator to get an idea of how many you’ll need for your next adventure. Take advantage of this offer before it expires on August 31, 2023.
