Increased sign up bonus for the American Express AIR MILES Reserve Credit Card - now earn up to 3,800 AIR MILESEarlier today we brought you the details of the new welcome offer for the enhanced American Express AIR MILES Platinum Credit Card. Of course with that card getting a higher welcome bonus American Express had to also boost the offer on the American Express AIR MILES Reserve card since the new Platinum offer eclipsed the old Reserve offer.  The new bonus on the Reserve cards sees new cardmembers being able to earn 3,800 AIR MILES Reward Miles. To my best recollection this is the highest sign up bonus for an AIR MILES Credit Card ever seen. We’ve seen 3,000 before on competing AIR MILES cards and earlier today the 3,500 for the Platinum Card but never have we seen the potential to earn 3,800 miles. New American Express AIR MILES Reserve Credit Card Cardmembers earn a welcome bonus of up to 3,800 AIR MILES®* Bonus Miles – here’s how:Earn 1,400 Bonus Miles when you charge a total of $3,000 in purchases to your Card in the first 3 months of Cardmembership.Earn up to 2,400 Bonus Miles – In your first 6 monthly billing periods as a new American Express AIR MILES Reserve Credit Card Cardmember, you can earn 200 Miles for every $750 you spend in purchases in each monthly billing period (up to a maximum of 400 Miles per monthly billing period)…

Coveted 50% Transfer Bonus for RBC Rewards (Avion only) to British Airways Executive Club is back until Dec 15, 19RBC Avioners rejoice! The 50% transfer bonus to British Airways Executive has made a come back after three years! Last seen in November of 2016 (see our post here) many of us thought this awesome offer was never to be seen again! We have become accustomed to the 30% twice per year since then but are super happy RBC has brought back this dinosaur The offer is for all of you RBC Avion cardholders (Infinite, Infinite Privilege, Platinum, Business Commerical etc.) and runs until December 15. Despite a recent devaluation to award flight pricing on partner airlines, this promotion is still an amazing deal as BA Avios are a great option for flights to Asia (via Cathay Pacific), short to medium haul within North America (short haul offer is great on Alaska Airlines or American Airlines see this post here) and even though huge surcharges are added to their UK/Europe redemptions they can still be an alright value because of this bonus based on your spend with the credit card (see my post about Earn & Burn for an explanation)…
