Amex to Air France 25% Transfer Bonus until 4/29/2019
One of the great things about American Express is they frequently offer transfer bonuses to their partners. Case in points. Until April 29th, you’ll get a 25% bonus when you transfer into Flying Blue. This creates a great opportunity to score business class seats across the pond for under 50k each way. It is worth noting that Air France levies a few hundred bucks for taxes and fees. However, you’ll earn 5x points when you pay those with an Amex Platinum…one of the 10 reasons I think the card is worth the $550 annual fee.
The Amex 25% transfer bonus to Air France:
I flew from Paris to Washington D.C. for 55k miles and $330 in taxes and fees. With this transfer bonus just 44k miles
Sure the taxes and fees aren’t nothing, but my goodness, that’s a helluva deal at 44k and it’s a fabulous business class.
Don’t forget Amex is also offering a 15% bonus on miles transferred to Avianca.
