Now alright let's move on to talking About American Express adding a new Transfer Partner that would be Qatar Airways yes Amex quietly added them as a New Transfer Partner and that takes American Express's Airline Transfer Partner is up to 18. now the reason I Think that they have been added now is That last year Qatar switched from their Own loyalty program points currency to Avios which is the Loyalty currency of British Airways Iberia and Air Lingus Which are all owned by the same company Now all three of those airlines are Already Transfer Partners of American Express and you can actually already Transfer your avios from British Airways To Qatar so it kind of makes sense just To add Qatar to Amex so that you can Transfer directly transfers are at a One-to-one ratio and the avios arrive Instantly in your Qatar account but There is a reason why you may not want To use Qatar Airways as a direct Transfer partner and you may want to Transfer the British Airways first and Then on to Qatar and that is transfer Bonuses and guess what right now American Express is doing a 30 transfer Bonus to British Airways so every Thousand Amex points you transfer over To ba you get 1 300 avios if you were to Transfer 50 000 over you'd get 65 000 Avios to transfer those over to Qatar
You'd then go to British Airways log Into your account and go to manage my Account and then combine abios and then There's a page where you can transfer to Either Iberia or Qatar now the current Promotion with British Airways runs Until August 31st so if you want to Transfer Amex points to Qatar before That date do it first via ba so that you Get that 30 bonus but what can you do With Qatar avios well you can book the Famous Q Suites business class now you Can book Q suites with British Airways Avios too okay through British Airways You can book Qatar however booking Directly through Qatar airlines with Their own avios will give you better Rates on flights that have connections For example let's say you want to go From New York to the Maldives via Qatar Okay so you switch planes in Doha Qatar's home airport you'll be able to Fly Q Suites on the JFK okay to Doha leg And then probably some other type of Qatar business class seat on the Doha to The Maldives leg to Malay which is the Airport in the Maldives but it will be Cheaper to use Qatar avios rather than British Airways avios to book this Itinerary because there is that Connection in Doha British Airways Prices the flights that are direct Pretty much exactly the same as Qatar Avios but Qatar avios will prove cheaper
If there is a connection just remember We always say only transfer your points Over once you have a flight that you Want to do and you've actually found Award availability for that flight you Don't want to get points stuck in a Certain airline with no use for them and Do also remember that Qatar avios unlike British Airways avios do expire 36 Months after they hit your account That's three years also in the past both Accounts had to be open for at least 90 Days in order to transfer avios that was The same with Iberia too I couldn't find Anything in the terms and conditions Mentioning that so maybe it's not a Thing anymore I then went and did a test Transferring one Avio from British Airways over to my brand new Qatar Account which I literally opened Yesterday for this video and one Avio Transferred over so it seems that that 90 day thing perhaps isn't a thing Anymore if anyone knows anything more About that do leave a comment anyway Guys that is the video for today don't Forget to get protected online and Protect your credit score something very Important if you want to play the whole Credit card points and Miles game like We do protect yourself with a two-week Free trial of Aura link to that is in The description below and the QR code on Screen now as always please subscribe on
