Are you sure? When? The wikipost history above shows a targeted 50% offer for a couple of weeks in November 2012, but nothing in 2013 and nothing ever above 40% that was open to all.

Be careful what you wish for. Last time FB had a transfer promo, they devalued the points shortly after.

hey guys. waiting for a BA transfer promo but my annual fee for my AMEX PRG just hit and I have 30 days (what CSR told me) to transfer out and cancel the card to get the fee reversed. any ideas on some alternatives? My only other Amex is the Amex BCP which I am also downgrading to the BCE Mar/Apr so I have nowhere to park the points.

same here, but I am disappointed with BA availability on the BOS-DUB route. (Aer Lingus metal) There is absolutely nothing available this summer. Last summer I had no trouble finding the availability I wanted. Maybe some will open closer to summer...

I also can't find much for CLE-NYC on AA metal... last year it seemed to be more plentiful.

How do I check availability? Do I have to call?

I'm look at going either next fall or spring 2015. Also, can I book 2 tickets at once?
