Here is a current list of Amex Membership Rewards airline and hotel transfer partners.
List of Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Partners
Currently, American Express Membership Rewards has 20 transfer partners – 17 airline partners and 3 hotel partners.
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. (right now there is a 30% transfer bonus to Hilton Honors).

Although they transfer at a great ratio, I would not transfer my Amex Membership Rewards points to Hilton Honors since there are several versions of Amex Hilton cards that earn Hilton points so they are very easy to earn elsewhere. I would rather transfer my American Express Membership Rewards points to one of the airline programs.
Here is a link of all the Membership Rewards transfer travel partners on the American Express website.

Would like to transfer some our points to Hyatt hotel program. How do we go about this?
Hyatt is not an Amex Membership Rewards partner so you cannot transfer. Do you have any Chase Ultimate Rewards points? Hyatt is one of the best transfer options of Ultimate Rewards: https://thetravelsisters.com/chase-ultimate-rewards-transfer-partners/
I need to transfer my membership points to an airline partner before closing my account. I don’t have any specific destination or plans at this moment. Which airline partner is the most flexible? Which airline partner has lowest fuel/surcharge? I’d like to transfer to United or American Airline until I figure out what to do. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
I would recommend applying for the Amex Every Day Card before cancelling your card. The Every Day card has no annual fee and that way you can keep your membership rewards points in your account indefinitely even if you open and close other Amex cards. All your membership rewards points pool into one account even if earned from different credit cards.
If you still need to move points, American Airlines is a good option. You cannot transfer to United.
I would like to transfer some of my AMEX Membership Rewards Point to RJ Royal Plus Millage.
I would like to obtain tickets on emirates air to fly to Africa in may 2018. How soon can I make reservations? May I use Amex points?
Can I transfer my Amex points to my Qantas frequent flyer point scheme?
No you cannot transfer Amex points to Qantas. You can book Qantas flights using British Airways so you could transfer to them.
