Membership Rewards to add Aer Lingus as a transfer partner

British Airways, Iberia, and Aer Lingus “share” the currency called Avios, though each program has its own award chart and loyalty program. It has long been theoretically possible to move Avios between your accounts in each of the three programs (British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus, and Aer Lingus AerClub), but many people have had difficulty in doing so. Later this month, it will get a little easier to accumulate Aer Lingus Avios since they are…

Buy miles via Amex Membership Rewards

In general I don’t recommend purchasing airline miles, even at a discount, but if you have an immediate need for miles for a high value award, it can make sense. If you have an Amex Membership Rewards card, you can buy miles indirectly at a cost of only 2.5 cents per mile (or less when transfer bonuses are in effect). The best airline programs for these indirect mileage purchases, in my opinion, are: …

What is Membership Rewards First? Are good things coming?

Membership Rewards First

If you’ve recently signed up for the new Blue Business Plus Amex card, and you have a Platinum or Centurion card, you probably received a notice telling you that since you already have at least one eligible card enrolled in the Membership Rewards First program, they have automatically enrolled your new card in that program “as a special thank you.” When I first saw this, I thought the memo was about the ability to transfer…
