Amex miles

Amex miles

  1. DrBob

    I plan on closing my business gold American Express card I have 125000 miles and they no longer transfer to United. I often times fly JetBlue would this be a good transfer for my AmEx miles?

    Well, personally i find Amex transfers to SQ KrisFlyer, AF FlyingBlue or Aeroplan to be a better value since I can redeem for premium cabin flights.

    Keep in mind that Amex transfer to jetBlue are 1 to 0.8 so your 125k Amex points becomes 100k jetBlue points. Also, Amex charges a tax when transferring points to any US based airline loyalty program. Lucky has said that generally 1 jetBlue point is equal to 1.5 cents, though it fluctuates depending on the ticket. jetBlue is not the best transfer option but if you can make use of it, then it’s good for you.

    Welcome [USER=3358]@DrBob[/USER], like David says, the best transfer is the one that makes the most sense for you. Just keep in mind that miles in some programs (like Singapore) have hard expiration dates so if you don’t have a specific use in mind for those miles you may be better off with a program you know you’ll use and/or where the miles will not expire.

    I understand that JetBlue miles don’t expire. Is that correct?
    Thank you
