Both Air France Flying Blue and JetBlue True Blue have new Amex transfer bonuses of 25%.

Air France is offering a 25% transfer bonus from Amex Membership Rewards until November 30, 2019.

Many people find Flying Blue far more useful for booking SkyTeam partner awards (and Air France / KLM awards) than Delta, for example, as the rates tend to be more reasonable (although you do have to watch out for surcharges! You can also transfer from all transferable bank programs, so it’s easy to piece together enough for an award.

Marriott Bonvoy Credit Cards from American Express and Chase

This is not the first or only time a transfer bonus to Flying Blue has happened and I doubt it will be the last, so I generally advise you only transfer if you know how you will use the points in a reasonably short time frame.

Until December 21, 2019 you can transfer Amex points to JetBlue’s TrueBlue program with a 25% bonus

Generally, I wouldn’t bother with this unless it’s to “top up” for an award.  I generally value JetBlue points at about 1.4 cents each so you could extract about 1.75 cents per point transferring, but really, you can do better with your Amex points. Much better.
