How long does it typically take to transfer from RBC to BAEC? Looking to book a flight with the current BA reward promo which ends Jun 17. Will the transfer be instantaneous?

Nice! I've been waiting for this too.

Now if they also have a bonus amex rewards transfer that would be perfect!

Can 2 different cards transfer to the same Avios account?
Mind you, the names on the RBC card and the Avios account should match. Last time they cancelled my conversion well after the deal period was over saying my business card name and avios account name didn't match.

Does the West Jet bonus transfer promo usually follow after the BA promo?

Please allow upto 4 weeks for the points conversion to be processed. Got this from my email when I converted last time.

Names won't match but same address if that counts lol. But I know Amex allows transfer to different aeroplan accounts even if names are different. Was hoping this would be similar

Thanks OP,

Remember you can set up a household plan at BA to pool your points.

British Airways Household

An excellent resource for using BA points on partners is:

TPG best uses of 100k avios

BA is a one world partner plus Alaska, Air lingus and Meridiana.
One world includes

Lots of options but often you have to call BA to book. For example:
booking YYJ/OGG would involve looking for saver space on American, then checking that route on Alaska, then calling BA to book the flights on Alaska.

Isn't there a discount of 50% off Avios points flying to London, maybe it can be double dipped here?

Or you could do differently. BA has household Avios, you can transfer the avion to different avios account but use them combined as household avios.

I guess 30% is the best we can get now. They used to have 50% bonus, but haven't seen that for quite sometimes
I think it is somewhat expected considering how cheap CAD compared to USD right now.
it is essentially 75 US cents spent per Avion/Avios, or 58c with bonus.

Is this the most valuable way to spend RBC points?

How far off were your names? Missing middle name or a lot different? My credit card only had first and last name but my ba account has middle name to match my passport...

I find a lot of availability for flights to HKG for off peak season and rescheduling a flight through avois is very affordable 58 cad per trip flat rate. But finding tickets to USA is mission impossible. Anyone has similar experience?
