The Fine Print

  • Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points. Redeem for this exclusive offer from 12:00 a.m. CT on October 1, 2016 to 11:59 p.m. CT on October 31, 2016, to receive 25% additional Alitalia miles.
  • Additional Alitalia miles will be awarded at the time of transfer.

Our Verdict

Historically American Express have only offered one transfer bonus for Alitalia MilleMiglia Club and that was for 25% and might have been targeted. So if you want Alitalia miles then now is probably the best time to transfer. You can view all of the previous transfer bonuses for all programs they have offered here. They are also currently offering the following transfer bonuses:

Honestly I’m entirely unfamiliar with these miles, if anybody has more experience with the sweet spots then please let us know in the comments below.

It’s up there with Aeroméxico as some of the best pricing if you can deal with the headaches involved. 80k round-trip to Europe.

80k Biz to Europe and North Africa is one sweet spot.

Biggest downsides, and why it doesn’t get much attention is the restriction on RT travel only and frustratingly incompetent agents.
