AMEX points to Aeroplan

American Express Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to the Air Canada Aeroplan at a 1:1 ratio. This means that transferring 1,000 Membership Rewards Points will give you 1,000 Aeroplan Points.

This transfer ratio makes the Membership Rewards Program one of the best ways to quickly build Aeroplan Points through intro bonuses and everyday spending. There's several categories featured across Membership Rewards credit cards that will earn you more points than Aeroplan's own co-branded credit cards.

AMEX points to British Airways Avios

RBC holds the only British Airways credit card available in Canada and while it's a solid option, it's not the best when it comes to earning Avios as you'll only earn 2X Avios on British Airways purchases and 1X on everything else.

You can easily earn more points using AMEX's top credit cards which features multipliers as high as 5X points per $1 spent.

AMEX points to Delta miles

Delta does not offer any co-branded credit cards for Canada-based members, so your best bet for earning SkyMiles across everyday spending is going to be using the Membership Rewards Program.

Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to Delta SkyMiles at a 4:3 ratio meaning that transferring 1,000 points will give you 750 Delta SkyMiles. This transfer ratio isn't as good as Aeroplan or British Airways, but it's still a solid option if you need to build points for Delta.

If you enjoy flying Delta, you'll want to consider the The Platinum Card. Not only will you earn the equivalent of 2.25X SkyMiles on dining and 1.5X SkyMiles on Delta spend based on the transfer ratio, but you'll also be able to access Delta SkyClub Lounges when flying Delta thanks to the American Express Global Lounge Collection featured on the card.

AMEX points to Marriott

AMEX Canada Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to Marriott Bonvoy at a 5:6 ratio meaning that transferring 1,000 Membership Rewards Points will give you 1,200 Marriott Bonvoy Points.

Marriott has two co-branded credit cards available to members based in Canada that are great for both benefits with Marriott and earning points spending at Marriott properties. But when it comes to earning points outside of Marriott, both cards earn a decent return, but you'll earn more points using Membership Rewards credit cards.

Out of the available cards, you'll want to consider the The Platinum Card which will earn you the equivalent of 3.6X SkyMiles on dining and 2.4X SkyMiles on travel after the 5:6 transfer ratio. Plus, The Platinum Card offers complimentary elite status with several hotel chains including Marriott Bonvoy.
