American Express Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to a handful of airline and hotel rewards programs. The programs you can transfer your points to will depend on which Membership Rewards credit cards you have.

All but Marriott and Air New Zealand has a transfer ratio of 2:1 which means that every 2,000 Membership Rewards Points you transfer will earn you 1,000 airline miles or Hilton Honors Points.

The American Express® Platinum Card and Centurion Card members will have the ability to transfer points to Qantas Frequent Flyer as part of the Ascent Premium program.

You can also opt in to earn Qantas points instead of Membership Rewards Points with both the David Jones American Express Platinum Card and David Jones American Express Card.

How To Transfer AMEX Points

In order to transfer your Membership Rewards Points to partners, you'll want to make sure that you have an account with the program you're transferring your points to. You'll also need to link your Frequent Flyer or Hotel Rewards account to your Membership Rewards account.

Here's the steps:

  1. Go to the AMEX Frequent Travellers Partners page.
  2. Find the program you want to transfer your points to and click Transfer My Points.
  3. Log into your AMEX Account if you have not already.
  4. Input the amount of points you wish to transfer to the selected partners.
  5. Review the information and confirm the transfer request.

Transfers can take anywhere from 1 business day to 15 days so be sure to note this if you're trying to transfer points to immediately redeem them. AMEX lists the estimated transfer times on the Frequent Travellers Partners page as well as the minimum amount of points you'll need in order to transfer your points.
