American Express 25% Bonus on Point Transfers to JetBlue!

One of the key features of flexible points is the ability to transfer them to a bunch of different airlines or hotels instead of being locked into earning points with just one program. Sometimes there are bonuses to entice you to transfers points and currently, American Express has announced a 25% bonus on all point transfers to JetBlue from now to September 15th!

Normally, the ratio to transfer American Express Membership Rewards points into JetBlue TrueBlue points is 5:4 and you must transfer in increments of 250 points. Without this promotion, to get 10,000 JetBlue points you would have to transfer 12,500 Amex points but now to get the same 10,000 JetBlue points, it would only cost you only 10,000 Amex points!

Combining this deal with the separate 25% off JetBlue award flights deal I posted last night, there are some incredible deals to be had! One example is a trip down to Florida – this would normally cost 25,000 miles with all legacy carries (United, Delta, American or US Airways) but with these two promotions from Amex and JetBlue, a roundtrip flight is only 10,000 miles. That is less than a one-way domestic flight on most airlines (which is 12,500 points). That’s a really, really good deal.

This is only 10,000 JetBlue Points which means you could transfer 10,000 Amex MR points to JetBlue for this flight

Before transferring any points over to JetBlue though, research the cost in points on JetBlue’s website. There are no blackout dates so every flight is available for points but some are better deals than others. Once you have settled on the flights you want, at that point only, should you transfer your Amex MR points to JetBlue. Transfers between Amex and JetBlue happen instantly so you could book the flight immediately after transferring the points (you might need to sign out and sign back in to see the points).

Please followup with any questions!
