American Expres is once again offering a 25% transfer bonus on Membership Rewards points transferred to Air France / KLM Flying Blue. Flying Blue has a number of award chart sweet spots and they run regular promo awards with slight discounts on award tickets, which might make this appealing to those members who make use of them.
- Get a 25% bonus on Amex Membership Rewards points transferred to Flying Blue by 4/29/19
- Expires 4/29/19
- Must transfer in increments of 1,000 points
- There is no stated limit to the number of points you can transfer
Flying Blue is particularly popular for economy class redemptions to Hawaii (15K points each way from the East Coast on Delta) and for flights to Israel and parts of Northern Africa, which are considered part of “Europe” under the award chart (while most other programs consider those areas to be regions other than Europe). This means you can snag a pretty good deal in terms of award tickets to either location.
Ultimately, I’d probably only transfer if I had a short-term plan for the points since time will tell how readily available the lowest level redemptions will be. As always, we have added this to our list of Current point transfer bonuses.
This bonus was last offered from May to June 2018, which you can also find in the “expired” section on the Current point transfer bonuses page. Citi also ran a 30% bonus late last summer.
