This is the Weekend Update:
- 40% American Express Transfer Bonus to British Airways ends TODAY 1/31/15 (we haven't seen a bonus this big in a long time!)
- BA Avios devaluation this week is not so bad – read more from Gary and Lucky. I wasn't surprised to see this at the same time they offered the 40% transfer bonus from Amex

- If Lyft is not in your area yet, there are other car service free rides available: Uber $30 Free Ride, Gett $20 Free Ride (we'll both get a free ride if you use my link – many thanks!!)
- AwardNexus.com offers an award search engine and several other tools to help you find your next award seat. Free memberships are available to members of flyertalk.com, milepoint.com, or if you have a travel related website. Sign up and get some free help with your next award booking.
