Through April 1st, earn a 15% bonus when transferring Membership Rewards to Avianca LifeMiles.  Avianca miles are a great currency for intra-region Star Alliance flights, especially throughout North and South America.

American Express partnered with Avianca LifeMiles in November of last year.  As of today, Membership Rewards can be transferred to 22 airline partners, including JetBlue, Virgin Atlantic, and Aer Lingus.  Citi ThankYou Points and Capital One Miles are also transferrable to Avianca, so we have plenty of options to put our hard-earned points to work.
