American Express offers 15% to 20% bonus on Velocity transfers


American Express has launched a new promotion offering 15% to 20% bonus points when you transfer Membership Rewards Points to Velocity. The bonus offer is running from now through to the end of February.

The bonus is open to members that can transfer from Membership Rewards. In most cases, cardmembers will get a bonus of 15%. However, Platinum or Centurion charge cardholders will get a boosted offer of 20%.

In order to get the bonus, you will need to make a transfer of at least 2,000 Membership Rewards Points. The transfer rate from Membership Rewards is 2:1. As a result, those 2,000 Membership Rewards Points will convert into 1,000 Velocity Points.


With a range of international redemptions now available, including on Singapore Airlines, some may be looking for a bit of a point boost to book some tickets. As such, it may be a good time to take advantage of an offer like this.
