Chase surprised the miles and points world in the last week of April when it launched its first ever Ultimate Rewards transfer bonus. Now, almost 8 weeks later, the 30% bonus on transfers to the British Airways Executive Club is about to end.
Here's a hotel promotion that really couldn't be any simpler: Between now and the end of the year travelers can collect up to 1,000 bonus Avios each time they stay at one of Marriott's European properties.
American Airlines has launched its latest miles sale which runs through to the end of the month and this time around it's selling its currency at the lowest rate we generally see - 1.72 cents/mile. If you're short of AAdvantage miles this is probably the time to buy as you're unlikely to find a better deal - even the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale didn't offer a price as low as this last year.
American Express is currently on a bit of a roll with multiple transfer bonuses to Membership Rewards partners running right now. Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, JetBlue True Blue and Qantas all currently have Amex transfer bonuses available and now, if you're fortunate, you can add British Airways to that list.
United has launched a flash mileage sale which lasts through to the end of the day on Thursday June 13th and, as the sale is offering the highest bonus we generally see United publish and as United has increased the number of miles you can buy to 175,000, this may be one of the better times to top up an account if the math works for you.
American Express has launched a 40% bonus for transfers between Membership Rewards and JetBlue's True Blue program but no one should be rushing over to the American Express website to see if they've been targeted for this promotion without reading one very important warning first.
American Express added Qantas as the 19th airline transfer partner for its Membership Rewards program late last week and we already have our first conversion bonus on offer which is valid for transfers made through 30 June 2019.
I'm very new to British Airways status (having given up on American Airlines status last year) so I'm still learning the finer details of what my Gold status gets me in the British Airways Executive Club but, after a few months of paying closer attention than normal, I'm finally starting to feel like I'm getting on top of everything I really need to know.
When I discover something I didn't previously know about a loyalty program I rarely use I'm generally not very surprised because modern-day loyalty programs have so many nuances that it's almost impossible to keep on top of all of them...but today's discovery genuinely caught me off guard - I had no idea that you could credit Japan Airlines (JAL) flights to the Flying Blue program (and vice versa) and this is something I would expect myself to know.
Virgin Atlantic has launched a miles sale which is offering bonuses of up to 40% through 30 June 2019. Don't let your dislike of Virgin's often outrageous surcharges put you off buying miles because, if you know where to look, there's a fantastic use for Virgin Atlantic miles that offers truly great value.
