Calculate the transfer of rewards between different loyalty programs. Covers transfers between airlines, hotels, bank rewards, rail, and car rentals.

Transferring Rewards

There are many programs that allow you transfer rewards between programs. This gives you alternative ways to earn reward points and miles in your favorite programs as well as allows you to easily top off your loyalty account if you're a few rewards short of a redemption. This page lists all the points and miles transfer calculators on this site.

Transfer To Airlines

Airline miles can be earned transferring bank, hotel, and car rental rewards directly to your frequent flyer account. More times than not, bank rewards programs will be the better way to earn points over co-branded airline credit cards. For the most part, airline credit cards are more for the benefits that come with holding the card than the earning rate itself.

The Airline Transfer Partner Calculators will calculate the transfer of points to airline miles. Each calculator also lists all transfer partner credit cards and shows the earning rates and sign up bonuses in airline miles based on the transfer ratio. This lets you easily find partner credit cards that may be of interest to you.

Credit cards reflect airline miles based on the transfer ratio to help you find the best transfer partners.

Bank Rewards Transfers

There are currently four Bank Rewards Programs that allow you to transfer points to airline miles and hotel points. Those programs are held by American Express, Chase, Citi, and Capital One. If you're looking to build rewards on everyday spend and travel, these are the programs you will want to take a look at.

The Bank Rewards Transfer Calculators will calculate the transfer of points to airline miles and hotel points with their partners. Each page lists out the alliance of all airline partners and provides a side-by-side comparison of transfer partners against other bank rewards and top hotel program transfer partners.

Hotel Points Transfers

Hotel points can be transferred to airline miles and, in some cases, rail points. Points earned with hotels can usually be earned in the masses through hotel stays, elite status, and co-branded hotel credit cards. With that being said, Marriott has the best transfer ratio of all the hotel programs and is usually compared with the bank rewards programs. Hyatt has a pretty good transfer ratio as well, but it's a lot harder to earn Hyatt Points in the masses. IHG Rewards Club is a close third due to the amount of points you can earn. Outside of those programs (U.S.-based only), I would only recommend transferring points if you needed to top off your account.

The Hotel Points Transfer Calculators will calculate the transfer of hotel points to airline miles and rail points. Most of the pages feature a breakdown of all airline partners by alliance and a side by side comparison transfer partners against top bank and hotel programs. The transfer calculators that only feature a calculator are marked with a (†).
