Q. What does a 50% bonus mean?
A. The regular ratio conversion of RBC Rewards points to BA Miles is 1 RBC Rewards point for 1 BA Mile. However, between 1 December 2009 and 1 March 2010, you will receive 50% more BA Miles when you convert your points. Take the amount of BA Miles you would receive normally and multiply it by .5. For instance, if you were converting 10,000 points, you’d receive 10,000 Miles PLUS an additional 5,000 BA Miles because 5,000 is 50% of 10,000. Thus, you would earn 15,000 total BA Miles.
