American Express is offering a 25% bonus on transfers to Air France/KLM Flying Blue, a great way to get from the U.S. to Europe – or even Hawaii.

This transfer bonus runs all the way through Nov. 30, so you’ve got some time to cook up the best way to use the extra miles. The Points Guy broke the news about this promotion.

These transfer bonuses are great because they’re basically a way to get free airline miles. Just keep in mind that you need a card that earns American Express Membership Rewards points like the American Express Platinum – your co-branded Delta SkyMiles credit cards from American Express won’t do the trick. Read our guide on how to transfer Amex points to airline and hotel partners.

We’ll never turn down some free Flying Blue miles. It’s a great way to fly to Europe and back – especially with Flying Blue Promo Rewards, the monthly list of discounted routes between the U.S. and Europe. With this ongoing promotion, you can currently fly from Chicago-O’Hare (ORD) to almost anywhere in Europe for just 32,000 miles round-trip. Factor in this transfer bonus, and you’d need just 26,000 Amex points to make it happen. 

But our favorite way to use this bonus is to fly from the continental U.S. to Hawaii. No matter whether you’re flying nonstop from the West Coast, making the long trek from New York City (JFK) or Boston (BOS), or starting from a tiny airport in the Midwest, you need just 35,000 miles to book flights on Delta to the Hawaiian islands and back.

At that rate, you could transfer only 28,000 Amex points and have enough for a trip to Hawaii. That’s a steal.

 

Bottom Line

Transfer bonuses like this one are great – it means you need fewer points to book your next getaway. And a 25% bonus when transferring Amex points to Air France/KLM Flying Blue is a great one.
