    I have roughly 16K BA avios and they are set to expire in September. The problem is I don't foresee taking a trip on BA by then and I'd like to keep the account/avios active. Should I purchase 1000 avios for $53 or does transferring miles in from an AmEx account work as well?

    Thanks in advance.

    AMEX transfer should work, and you know you can use those Avios on ANY oneworld airline, right?

    Not sure where you are based but w/distance based you can redeem for a US flight starting at 9k (ie PHL to YYZ) or 15k (PHL to MCO)

    Buy something from the BA online shopping mall? Mileage usually takes about a month to post, but it's pretty reliable, IME.
