3 New Transfer Bonuses
The three new offers that came out today are as follows and all expire on 8/31/22:
- 20% bonus for Capital One Miles to British Airways Avios
- 25% bonus for Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles
- 20% bonus for Capital One miles to Flying Blue (KLM / Air France)
These include 3 of the more desired partner airlines so that is good to see. It has been tougher to find domestic space with partner airlines this year, but hopefully that changes into the fall. Internationally it has been easier to find space though, especially in economy. I wouldn’t transfer anything speculatively because of the struggles to find space but this is a good way to extend the life of some miles. It has worked for me in the past for LifeMiles even though it says in their terms it shouldn’t.
There seems to be quite a few more of these transfer bonuses coming this summer than normal. Especially from non Amex lenders like Citi, Capital One and even some from Chase. Transfer bonuses are always good to see and just makes our points more valuable. I think the airlines are pushing it more to get some extra income from these deals.
