It’s a new month, and March brings new transfer bonuses!
Chase: 50% bonus to Marriott March 1 – May 15, 2023
Marriott points are worth less than Chase Ultimate Rewards points, even with this 50% bonus. I don’t recommend transferring Chase to Marriott unless you need to top off your Marriott points for an award stay.
Citi: 20% bonus to Avianca Lifemiles March 1-31, 2023
You can use Avianca miles on Star Alliance flights. I’ve used Avianca miles to book an international flight on United. Unfortunately, Avianca’s website and customer service aren’t the best.
Note: Citi also has a 30% bonus to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club February 18-March 18, 2023.
Capital One: 30% bonus to Virgin Red March 1-30, 2023
You can transfer Virgin Red points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, which has sweet spots for ANA round-trip flights and Delta One flights (if you can find availability). You can also use Virgin Red points to book a Virgin Voyages cruise.
My Thoughts on these Transfer Bonuses for March
Truthfully, I was hoping that Chase or Capital One would offer a transfer bonus to Iberia or British Airways this month, as I’m getting ready to book award tickets to Europe. I’m going to keep checking Delta award space to Europe to see if I could benefit from the Capital One Virgin Red transfer bonus.
As with all transfer bonuses, I don’t recommend you transfer unless you see award availability first.
What do you think of these new transfer bonuses for March?
How does my family travel so much? We use miles and points from credit card bonuses. See my Travel Hacking 101 post as well as current credit card offers here.
Just used the Citi bonus to book an economy flight LAS-LHR for 11,500 points and $150 in taxes with Virgin Atlantic this summer! Big win in my book 🙂
I will also top off my Marriott account with some Chase points for a redemption this summer. I was going to do that anyway so I was happy to see that it will cost me even less with the bonus!
@Tammie I’m glad you are able to take advantage of these transfer bonuses. That’s a great price for a flight to London!
