Amex – ANA, then booking for someone else

Amex – ANA, then booking for someone else

    My friend wants to transfer Amex points to his ANA account and then book an award flight for his son. Can this be done?

    I know the workaround would be to make his son an authorized user and then transfer points to his son’s ANA account, but he doesn’t have the 90 days required for that.

    Thanks!

    Create a ANA account for the son and add the son as a family member. Then you can move the miles from the father’s ANA account to the son’s ANA account.

    An ANA frequent flier (AMC member) can book ANA award travel for immediate family and “relatives within two degrees”. So yes, he can transfer Amex MRs to his AMC account and then book for his son.

    No need to move the miles from his AMC account to his son’s account. Though AMC does allow transfers between family members. This is helpful because AMC account holders can only book awards on partner airlines for the immediate account holder.
