The (bmi) Diamond Club - BAEC Avios Transfer Tool : Report successes / issues

Please use this thread to report any issues with the transfer tool.



To find the Transfer Tool in your BA account, click on "Manage my Account" :


Then "Combine my Avios" :







ISSUES FOR RESOLUTION

1) 2-way transfers

For example 100 destinations miles could be transferred into 100 Avios points and vice versa.
When will the BA to BD transfer function be available ?

First issue may be finding it .

For those new to Exec Club and looking for a special link for us you may share my disappointment that it is in the presumably 'old' Iberia/BA transfer tool with DC added. The following is where I ended up when looking for it here.

Re discussions elsewhere on checking the identities match:
  1. I have no idea if my DoB matched.
  2. The system seems to be designed for your email addresses being different, as it says it is mailing a confirmation to both.

But the move of 1000 miles worked just fine .

I thought earlier blurb had talked about being able to move miles/points both ways, but here is a warning on the screen that it is only one-way: DC->Avios .

Transferred my first 500,000 and no issues.....strange thing though as in my DC accoun, it shows as 2 entries:-

02-Jul-2012 Redemption Redemption certificate #1753114 for BTTRWD-BTT Reward at British Airways Executive Club -469508 0

and

02-Jul-2012 Redemption Bonus: Redemption certificate #1753114 for BTTRWD-BTT Reward at British Airways Executive Club -30492 0

so nett and a 6.5% "bonus" to equate to the number of miles transferred

Mine went in two lumps as well but in a different proportion to the above...

02-Jul-2012 Redemption Redemption certificate #1753165 for BTTRWD-BTT Reward at British Airways Executive Club -72013 0
02-Jul-2012 Redemption Bonus: Redemption certificate #1753165 for BTTRWD-BTT Reward at British Airways Executive Club -49020 0


Not a problem at all though, must be some back end shenanigans going on but as long as the right amount of Avios show up at BA it doesn't really matter.

Just did the transfer for both myself and the wife's account. Saw the same wierdness as surturminn (2 transactions, one normal and one a 'bonus'). Seemed to work fine from our household account into two non-household BA accounts. Also seemed happy enough to transfer non-transferable miles which is nice since mrs marble has had a few thousand sitting in her account.

Failed at the first hurdle. The Combine My Avios tool has a drop-down with two options - Avios (ie ex-Airmiles) and Iberia Plus. I'm guessing bmi Diamond Club should also appear in this list?

+1. Hopefully will be sorted when it 'officially' goes live tomorrow.

I managed to sluice mine across, but it's now gone for me too. Did manage to get an MFU in, in the meantime...

Hehe I love that the BA/BD IT team probably thought they'd just quietly test out the live functionality for half an hour and didn't count on FT users immediately finding it and getting lots of transfers done

Some of us have been checking obsessively, ever since early morning (Singapore time) when 7 (!!!! Seven!!!) seats became available in F for a flight in a few days time...
