Membership Rewards Transfers: Best, Rest, and Indirect


Transfer PartnersYesterday I added a new resource page to this site: Amex Transfer Partners.  This new page has several (hopefully) useful sections:


This section has suggestions for when to transfer points, who’s accounts you can transfer to, and more. I expect this section will grow over time in response to reader questions and suggestions.

Best Amex Transfer Partners

This section lists the transfer partners that I think are most worthwhile.  The transfer ratio is listed along with suggested best uses.

The Other Transfer Partners

This section rounds out the list of all Amex transfer partners.  Just because a partner didn’t make my “Best” list doesn’t mean that there are no reasons to consider them.

Indirect Transfer Partners

This is, to me, the fun section.  It’s often possible to transfer Membership Rewards to airline miles to hotel points; or to transfer Membership Rewards to hotel points to airline miles; or…

Many of the ideas in this section aren’t particularly advisable.  For example, I wouldn’t recommend transferring 285,000 points into 132,000 United miles + 25,000 Alaska miles, but you could.  This section describes how.

Other Resources

We will continue to maintain our Transfer Partner Master List Google Doc which lists all known transfer relationships.  But, over time, we will also add additional easier to read pages describing transfer partners for Chase, Citi, SPG, and more.  Stay tuned.
