capital one british airways transfer bonus

Capital One just launched a new transfer bonus to British Airways Avios from credit cards that earn Capital One miles.

The normal transfer rate is 2:1.5 but with this bonus you’ll get an even 1:1 transfer. Meaning that 1,000 Capital One miles gets you 1,000 British Airways Avios.

As a reminder, British Airways Avios are best used for short flights on any oneworld carrier – AA and British Airways, obviously, but also Iberia, Finnair, JAL, Qantas and more. As another reminder, if you have a cash back card with Capital One, you can (generally) convert that cash to miles in your online account. One dollar = 100 points.

The promotion runs through August 31st, 2021.

Here’s the complete list of Capital One transfer partners:
