Can't check now but I think AMEX does allow you to transfer their points to Avios miles. I would wait for a promotion by AMEX since they usually give bonus miles like 30% that I remember seeing recently. Yes, you should be able to book through AA website using Avios miles.

Yes, you can also get the British Airways card by Chase. It's not as lucrative like earlier in the year but can be rewarding if you can meet the minimum spend for 100K points.
Ah the reason Id cancel it would be due to an unfortunate set of circumstances I had with this card several years ago. Also I've never been too happy with their CS although an emotional response closing the account probably isnt the best idea.

I did see something where if you transfer your AMEX points you can get more points into Avios... Maybe 30%. http://thepointsguy.com/2012/12/30-a...nuary-14-2013/ Ah there it is.

Just to make sure British Air avios and AA use different forms of mileage rewards... But if you go through BA you can redeem your Avios for AA flights correct?
