American Express Membership Rewards seems to be doing more targeted transfer bonuses recently. Not a trend I much like to see (well, I suppose I shouldn’t mind as long as I’m being targeted!).
I received an email this afternoon about a 50% bonus on transfers from Membership Rewards to Starwood Preferred Guest.
Still not in my view worth doing. It goes from taking 3 Membership Rewards point to get 1 Starpoint to 2 Membership Rewards points per Starpoint.
When I get these offers I’ve started to copy the link into a different browser, one where American Express doesn’t know who I am, to see whether the bonus comes up and is thus available to everyone or not.
This time, no dice. It’s available on my account, it may be available on your account, but seems not available if I’m not logged in at least unless they know who I am.
Does the offer come up for you?
