Transfering AmEx MR Points to another person

Transfering AmEx MR Points to another person

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to transfer American Express points to either

    – the American Express Membership rewards point account of a friend


    – the SPG account of a friend?

    You cant transfer MR points from your account to someone else’s MR account.

    You can transfer MR points to someones SPG account if they are an authorized user on your AMEX MR account. However, the rate is 1000 MR points for 333 Starpoints. Not great, not recommended.

    Thx for your reply.

    Yeah the transfer rate is not great at all. I was just figuring out how to transfer MR points to Alaska Mileage Plan from a german AmEx Card. The transfer partner in Germany are not really interesting for me.

    At the moment you could get 30k MR points when you sign up for an AmEx and a friend gets 30k as well for the referral. Therefore I was looking for a way to join those 60k points in one account.
