I haven’t seen this before.

Amex is offering varying transfer bonus offers to different cardmembers on transfers from Membership Rewards to AsiaMiles.

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

I was offered a 10% bonus as you can see, which is kind of *yawn*, but others have reported up to 30% bonuses. Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles were recently devalued with regards to premium cabins and round trip awards, but they are still a viable option for Oneworld partners, especially if you lack American Airlines miles.

Caveat: You can also transfer to Asia Miles from Citi ThankYou. I always think it’s a good idea to check your balances and try to retain a balance across programs. For a 30% bonus and a current need, I think it’s great but for 10%, I’d probably sooner transfer my Citi to Asia Miles than Amex points.

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

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.
