How to Advance Yourself Delta SkyMiles

Once upon a time there were a number of programs that were willing to advance you points before you earned them, or at least let you lock in an award as long as you ponied up the required amount of miles and points before travel started. There are still a few that do that, though to my knowledge fewer than in the past. However, one such program that kicked off this year comes from your Delta Amex cards, as they…

Fly from Just 3,000 Points Using Amex Transfer Bonus to British Airways

Periodic transfer bonuses are part of the stable of miles and points tools that my family uses to really stretch what we have for travel that we otherwise couldn’t afford. You can’t predict most transfer bonuses, but you can choose to utilize them when they become available. Along those lines, through September 17, 2017, there is a 40% transfer bonus from the Amex Membership Rewards program to British Airways Avios that increases the transfer ratio from a one to one ratio to 250…

Best No Annual Fee Credit Card for Simple Points Earning

Right now I use different credit cards for our dining expenses, travel charges, gas purchases, groceries, hotel-specific spending, department store purchases, and yet another for any remaining larger purchases since I am working on a minimum spending requirement or two, or actually three. Oh and that doesn’t really count the cards my husband is using. Our system at the moment is a little complicated in order to maximize our spending. When my toddler was a baby it wasn’t this complicated because…

Limited Time 40% Transfer Bonus from Amex to British Airways

It has been a little while since I was legitimately excited about an Amex transfer bonus, but I think I am actually excited about one that was just launched today! As you may have already noticed, late last week Amex quietly bumped the everyday transfer rate to British Airways up from a 5 Membership Reward points = 4 British Airways Avios ratio to an even 1:1 ratio. This 1:1 ratio is where it has been until late in 2015, but it…

Amex Improves Transfer Ratio to British Airways!

In late 2015 American Express changed the transfer ratio from Membership Rewards to British Airways and Iberia Avios from the longstanding 1:1 ratio to an inferior 5:4 ratio. Obviously, that was bad news. Periodic transfer bonuses would nudge it back up to 1:1 or slightly better, but long gone were the days when a 50% transfer bonus would bump it up to something great like 1,000 Membership Reward points = 1,500 British Airways Avios. However, Amex has apparently had a change…
