AMEX transfer partner Fuel surcharge
I was targeted for AMEX Gold card for 50k with 1000$ spend in 3 months…
I wanted to check which AMEX airline partners charge fuel surcharge on Award redemptions and in case I want to transfer them to jetblue, is there any way to bypass the 99$ transfer fee..
Also in case I want to cancel my card what would be the best program to transfer them to or is it a way to merge them to my existing AMEX blue account..
Hi Naif – the Frequent Miler put together a Google Doc spreadsheet of transfer partners among the various currencies. The post is old but the spreadsheet is kept up to date. You can find the post here: [URL]http://frequentmiler.boardingarea.com/2014/06/24/transfer-partner-master-list/[/URL]
Last month MMS put together a list of airlines and indicated whether or not they charge fuel surcharges. You can find that list [URL=’http://millionmilesecrets.com/2015/11/08/dont-pay-fuel-surcharges-save-money-when-you-book-award-tickets/’]HERE[/URL].
Combine the two and you should be good to go!

Just chiming in to say [I]please[/I] don’t transfer your membership rewards points to JetBlue. It’s not a good value 99% of the time.
Thanks MidSouth Skier and Tiffany…
The reason for transfer to Jetblue was to use it on Emirates..but just checked that Emirates is not a redemption partner of Jetblue so no way I am going for it now
