Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points to Avianca LifeMiles with a 15% transfer bonus

From now until the end of October, American Express transfers to Avianca LifeMiles will get you 1,150 miles for every 1,000 points you transfer.

Is this a good deal?

We’ve seen much better transfer bonuses from LifeMiles recently. Just two months ago, there was a 25% transfer bonus from Capital One to Avianca. They also constantly run Buy Miles sales for under 1.2 cents a piece.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

So, no, I don’t think this is anything to rush for but I’d keep it mind were I going to book a LifeMiles award anyway and was deciding which points to transfer. Definitely don’t speculatively transfer on this one.

You can also get up to 60,000 LifeMiles with boosted bonuses from Avianca’s Vuela and Vida LifeMiles Credit Cards.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
