British Airways-Airline Of Choice Right Now with Chase 30% Bonus Transfer & Devaluation Coming May 30, 2019 By TheTravelSavant, Alexander Deutsch

Recently, Chase has launched its first-ever transfer bonus with British Airways.  Through June 16, 2019, transfers from Chase Ultimate Rewards to the British Airways Executive Club are processed with a 30% bonus.  British Airways is processing the bonus on its end, so you’ll only see the bonus Avios when you log into your BA account.  You can make as many transfers as you wish before the deadline.  What does this mean for a traveler? 

If you are traveling in the near future, you can fly within Europe in Business/First Class for 10,000 points a person.  That isn’t a bad redemption at all.  How about travel to Hawaii for 20,000 British Avios roundtrip in coach.  British Airways and American Airlines are partners and depending on route and date there could be an amazing deal. 

However, British Airways announced on April 29, 2019 that it will change the cost of redemption on most partner airlines from May 30, 2019.  BA said awards on the following airlines will change:

  • Alaska Airlines
  • Air Italy
  • American Airlines
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Finnair
  • Japan Airlines
  • LATAM
  • Malaysia Airlines
  • Qantas
  • Qatar Airways
  • S7
  • Sri Lankan
  • Royal Jordanian Airlines

The tip of the day is to look at flights two months before you want to travel.  Unless you can transfer and make your award bookings before May 30, 2019 this may very well impact whether this could be a great deal for your travel vacation.
