With American Express’s point transfer guide, transferring your American Express points to a loyalty program is as easy as one, two, three. Seriously, there are only three steps that Pointsters need to follow to transfer American Express points to their loyalty program of choice.
Step one: Link your accounts — Though it seems obvious, the first step is linking your loyalty account to your Membership Reward program account, if it’s not linked already, that’s it.
Step two: Select our transfer account — Select an amount of points to transfer!! Before transferring points, you’ll want to double check that you have enough points for your flight or hotel reservation before you complete your transfer. All transfers are final and will not be refunded, so don’t cut corners on this step!!
Step three: redeem your points — Double check your loyalty program account to verify that your points have been successfully transferred. Next, redeem them directly with the loyalty program.
