There is an Amex transfer bonus of 40% that will let you book some great deals, like Qatar QSuites for just 50K Amex points!

American Express is running a great transfer bonus of 40% on transfers from Amex Membership Reward points to Avios. Here are the details on this transfer bonus.

New Amex Transfer Bonus to Avios – 40% Bonus

This bonus – Amex to Avios – has been around on and off over the years. The current bonus of 40% is really good and opens up a lot of opportunities for award redemptions, especially with I (and many others) regard as the best business class in the world. No, it is not British Airways! 🙂 It is the Qatar Airways QSuites.

From last week until May 15, 2022, you can transfer your American Express Membership Reward points to British Airways Avios with a 40% bonus. Once there, you can transfer them to the new Qatar Airways Avios program at 1:1 or book directly from British Airways for flights on their partners or their own flights.

One of the best deals with this offer is the ability to book from the US to Doha, Qatar (or the reverse) on Qatar Airways for just 50K Amex points. Qatar Airways charges 70,000 Avios for this journey and you can see all the costs for various trips right here on the Qatar calculator.

To make this transfer, simply go to the Membership Rewards site (you can also do this through the direct Amex site) and login with your Amex credentials. Go to Transfer Points and, if you have already linked your account, just go ahead and select your British Airways account. If you have not yet linked your account, you will need to do this before you go further.
