    Hi lucky,
    How often does American Express and/or ultimate rewards offer transfer bonuses? I'm looking particularly at british airways and Virgin atlantic. I knew about the 40 percent ba avois transfer recently from Amex but didn't pull the trigger because I was unsure of my travel plans. I know now that I'm going to Europe in October 2015. Is it worth waiting for another transfer bonus or book now?
    Thanks in advance

    @ Jared leary -- Ultimate Rewards almost never has transfer bonuses, while Membership Rewards seems to have them with some frequency. Historically we've seen them fairly often with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, so I wouldn't be surprised if we saw one again soon. That being said, if you see good flights available now and don't have a lot of schedule flexibility, I might book ASAP.
