    Is that for redemptions by 30 April or travel by 30 April? And anyone know if the points transfer is instant or not?

    I've done numerous transfers from AMEX to different airlines and each one was instant (even though the terms say it can take more time), that said, I haven't done one to Air Tran. Sorry I can't answer the first question

    The transfer time is very much dependent on the program integration. I know of several which are instant but also a couple which are not. Without knowing that I'm hesitant (and I probably wouldn't do it anyways).
