Some of them are known to work for double dips. With the Amex Offers available and these payouts scheduled to last for several…

1:1 transfers from Membership Rewards to Avios

Update: After publishing this post, a representative reached out to confirm that this is indeed a change, not a promotion. See below for more information. Right now, Amex is offering transfers to both British Airways Avios and Iberia Avios at a rate of 1:1. This appears to be an unadvertised bonus — we have no idea how long this will last, so I suggest transferring sooner rather than later if you have a need to book…

Update on British Airways Match.com Deal

Update: Many people are reporting successful refund/cancellation with Match.com today.  For those who spent more on the add-ons than on the actual subscription, this may be the easiest way to avoid the risk of overpaying for the miles.  As the official policy of Match.com is no refunds in most states, I would urge you to seek a refund sooner rather than later if you want to take that route. Yesterday, we posted a shopping portal…
