It has been a very long time since American Express has had a transfer bonus to one of their frequent flyer program affiliates. However, as of today, American Express Membership Rewards points are transferring at a 1:1.25 ratio to British Airways Avios! This is a 25% bonus on the normal 1:1 transfer.

Some credit cards have a “minimum spend,” that is, to get the sign-up bonus, or to reach a bonus tier, you have to spend X amount of $ in Y time to get the bonus. For example, to get the 60,000 MR points offered with the AMEX Platinum card (this is a referral), you have to spend $1000 in 3 months. Business cards typically have much higher minimum spends, and occasionally, we have seen minimum spends reaching $10,000 (was an offer from the RBC Avion Visa).
