Is there a limit to the number of transfers you can do with this bonus?  Is it for first time transfers only?

Thanks.

Nope. It's built into the MR transfer, and acts as if the standard Amex > BA ratio is 1:1.5

I just sent them a request to see what they can do about the 150k points that I transferred a week before the promo started. I'm keeping my fingers crossed (or to be more exact, in the shape of the star of david).

They denied me, and I requested s/t as a goodwill gesture.
Think it's worth calling, or are the odds against it?

it says the transfer is instant, but how long should it take to show up in my BA account? 10 min an hour?

Sometimes they don't show up online, but they are there when you call.

Did you confirm that the points were deducted from AMEX?

I'm assuming you tried logging out and back in again?

Sometimes the points balance will show as updated, but the points won't show in BA until next day. Go to points summary and see if the transfer is marked as "Confirmed" or as "Pending".
If you have my email PLEASE don't PM me :)
