Airlines have the best redemption value depending on availability but I would hold them on the AmEx platform as long as you can for flexibility

Whatever you do Amazon is the worst value. Best is transfer to airlines and redeem for international business class travel. I routinely get 4-6 cents per point this way.

I have 150k points in Delta, 500k in American, 150k in SPG, 150K IN Marriott, 50k in Hyatt....any of these offer better transfer options for Amex rewards points??? Thank you.

Damn, use those SPG points before the merger.

I fly AA so I mostly transfer Amex to delta to fly my girlfriend from NY when we go on trips

I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight.

Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
