Some of you may have applied for the Amex Platinum card with the 100K bonus, so I thought it would be a good time to review all the Amex Membership Rewards airline and hotel transfer partners.  I was recently looking at my American Express online account and thought the list of transfer partners were hard to find.

Most of these transfer at a 1:1 ratio (meaning 1,000 Amex Membership Rewards points transfer to 1,000 miles/points) unless otherwise noted. American Express also periodically offers limited time transfer bonuses for transfers to certain partners.

List of Membership Rewards Airline Partners

Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Partners: Membership Rewards Airlines

  • Aeromexico (1,000 Membership Rewards = 1,600 Premier points)
  • Air Canada Aeroplan
  • KLM and Air France Flying Blue
  • Alitalia Mile Miglia
  • ANA Airlines
  • Asia Miles
  • British Airways Avios  (250 Membership Rewards =  200 Avios)
  • Delta Skymiles
  • El Al  (1,000 Membership Rewards = 20 Matmid points) (horrible transfer ratio)
  • Emirates Skywards
  • Etihad Guest
  • Hawaiian Airlines (limited time 25% transfer bonus: 1000 Membership Rewards points = 1000 1250 HawaiianMiles through 6/21/17)
  • Iberia Plus  (250 Membership Rewards points = 200 Avios)
  • JetBlue TrueBlue  (250 Membership Rewards points = 200 TrueBlue points )
  • Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
  • Virgin America Elevate (200 Membership Rewards = 100 Elevate points)
  • Virgin Atlantic FlyingClub

List of Membership Rewards Hotels 

Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Partners: Hotel Partners

  • Choice Privileges
  • Hilton HHonors  (1,000 Membership Rewards points = 1,500 Hilton HHonors Points)
  • SPG Starwood Preferred Guest (1,000 Membership Rewards points = 333 Starpoints) (bad ratio)

Although they transfer at a great ratio, I would not transfer my Membership Rewards to Hilton HHonors since there are 2 Amex cards and 2 Citi cards that earn Hilton points so they are very easy to earn elsewhere.  I would rather transfer my Membership Rewards points to one of the airline programs.

Here is a link of all the Membership Rewards transfer partners on the American Express website. You can also see if any Amex transfer partners are offering a limited time transfer bonus.
