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.

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

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:

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.
