Until December 31, 2010, get a 30% bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways.  No registration is needed (the ratio shows 1,300 BA = 1,000 Amex).

While British Airways has a somewhat inflated award chart, there are some gems. I just booked a client on JFK-MIA-EZE roundtrip in business class for 80,000 BA miles (vs. 100k AA). With this promo, you’d only need 62,000 miles for that award- not a bad deal! British Airways also has upgrade, one-way and cash and miles awards.

And as I wrote about here, the new British Airways first class cabin is absolutely fantastic.
