AMEX Transfer Partners

Every so often American Express would offer transfer bonuses to certain Airlines or Hotel programs. Right now, American Express has a limited time offer of 30% transfer bonus to Flying Blue and TrueBlue (TARGETED). If you have an award redemption in mind for the near future with either program, this is a good time to transfer your American Express Membership Rewards points.

Here are the terms and conditions for transfers to TrueBlue:

Trueblue

In order to be eligible for this offer, you must be the named recipient of this mailing and be enrolled in TrueBlue. In order to participate in this offer, visit www.jetblue.com/trueblue to enroll. American Express is not responsible for availability of flight, accommodations or any other rewards in the merchant program. Once you have transferred Membership Rewards® points, they become subject to the Terms and Conditions of the merchant program and cannot be transferred back to your Membership Rewards program account. Taxes, fees, charges and surcharges, including airline surcharges, JetBlue redemption flights and upgrades. See TrueBlue Terms and Conditions for details. Individual air carrier restrictions may apply.
Minimum transfer is 250 Membership Rewards points. Redeem for this exclusive offer from 12:00 a.m. CT on November 1, 2015 to 11:59 p.m. CT on November 30, 2015, to receive 30% additional TrueBlue points. For each conversion of points into the Frequent Flyer program of a U.S. airline, a fee of $0.0006 per point, with a maximum fee of $99, will be charged to your Card account. We charge this fee to offset the federal excise tax we must pay on such conversions.
The fee may be more or less than the actual amount of the excise tax we pay on any individual conversion. We may offer you the option to redeem points to cover this fee.

 

Here are the terms and conditions for transfers to Flying Blue:

FlyingBlue

Bottom Line:

Even though this bonus offer is not to the most lucrative Airline programs, sometimes you can find some great deals when booking JetBlue flights with TrueBlue points. You get a one-way transcontinental flight from JFK to LAX in economy for as low as 10,700 TrueBlue points.
