Is it to keep the points from expiring? It’s better to open a different card that maintains the points instead of speculatively transferring without a planned redemption

Some of the gift cards are at a real good discount through Amex points- old navy, BBB, HD etc

I found out on Oct 7 that an in person “summit” was planned my job. I signed up for back up care so that I could send my LO there while I went to the meetings. That hasn’t panned out and I’ve found out that others got notified last minute that the back up care couldn’t be honored. My flight is tomorrow. I’m stressing about what to do in this situation. Additionally, my husband’s probation period at his new job isn’t over so he can’t take off and we don’t have any family close to help out.
