(EXPIRED) Double Qantas transfer bonus? (get a 44% bonus, maybe more, maybe not)

There is currently a 20% transfer bonus from American Express Membership Rewards to Qantas. Qantas then sent out an email overnight advertising a 20% transfer bonus. While one might have assumed that this was the same bonus, readers at Dan’s Deals have confirmed that the bonuses are stacking.

Yesterday, we reported that Qantas has become an Amex transfer partner.

Chicago to Australia from $427 RT on Qantas

There was some terrific airfares available right now from Chicago to select cities in Australia (including to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane) from just $427 round trip.
