  • With a $300 annual travel credit and 10,000 miles (worth $100) each year at renewal, the credits you receive are actually worth more than the annual fee.
  • Free authorized user cards where the authorized user gets full airport lounge access of their own is unheard of.
  • No Preset Spending Limit; Earns Capital One Miles

Pros

  • The annual fee is more than covered by annual credits
  • Comes with access to Capital One lounges, Priority Pass lounges, Plaza Premium lounges - all with generous guest policies
  • Free authorized users also get the same airport lounge access benefits and Hertz status as the primary card holder
  • No Preset Spending Limit

Cons

  • The annual fee, while effectively negative $5 after credits, can feel like a lot.
  • Aside from bonus points for booking through Capital One travel, there are no bonus categories. Still, all eligible purchases do earn 2X miles per dollar spent which is great.
  • Points don't transfer to any domestic airlines, although you can use other partners to book domestic award tickets on domestic airlines.

It's worth noting that some Capital One cards earn 2 miles per dollar on everything, making the 1.6 cent per mile value an understatement as you'd be earning a 3.2% yield on every day spend. However, this assumes you will learn how to utilize the Capital One airline and hotel transfer partners, most of which transfer 1:1. The minimum value is 1 cent when used to book travel in their portal or to  cover previously paid for travel, however, our calculator assumes you will use Capital One's air and hotel transfer partners when calculating a 1.6 cent per point value. We also have a Guide to Capital One Miles.

Earn 80,000 Membership Rewards® Points after you spend $8,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership. Terms apply.

Get a 40% transfer bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Hilton.

Offer expires on May 31, 2024

** For personal Amex Platinum cardholders only **

Platinum Card┬« Members get 40% more Hilton HonorsÔäó Points when you transfer Membership Rewards┬« points through from May 9 to May 31. Offer is only available to current Platinum Card Members on a Platinum Account opened on or before April 20, 2024. Terms apply.

Please note: This transfer bonus is part of the American Express 40th Birthday celebration for The Platinum Card┬« from American Express. Only personal U.S. Platinum Card┬« cardholders are eligible. It seems that those holding personal Platinum cards like the Schwab Platinum Card are elso eligible – however, many people that are eligible are not seeing the offer in their account so make sure you see the 40% bonus before transfering!

While it’s always hard to recommend speculative transfers, Hilton points have gotten more attractive since announcing that SLH hotels will be fully integrated into Hilton Honors (See Dave’s recent musing about his thinking on how Hilton points may be becoming more valuable). And as long as you have at least the lowest tier Hilton status, the 5th night is free on any award and resort fees are also waived on award stays.

We value an Amex point at 1.7 cents and a Hilton point at 0.5 cents and while those values are average, with a 5th night free award you can definitely do well transfering 1,000 Amex points for 2,800 Hilton Honors points.

Our advice is to run some sample searches for potential redemptions to see the value you’re likely to get before transfering.

Get a 20% transfer bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Aeromexico Rewards.

Offer expires on May 31, 2024

Here’s an interesting one. Aeromexico Rewards points are worth *roughly* 0.75 cents each but with a wide range of ways to redeem.

Normally, you get 1.6 Aeromexico points for 1 Membership Rewards points so that bumps to 1,920 Aeromexico for 1,000 Amex under this ptomotion – so almost 2.1.

Aeromexico uses a range of redemption options including standard fixed awards and flexible awards – and you’ll see what’s available by searching and that does not require an account.

The last Aeromexico transfer bonus was in 2019, so these are pretty rare – though 20% isn’t a total game changer.

You can search here (use Google Translate in your browser if available as it’s in Spanish) to check possible redemptions.

Importantly, note the Aeromexico Rewards cancellation policy which is that, well, you can’t cancel it. You can change it, though.

Award Ticket may not be cancelled or reimbursed. If the Member decides not to use the Award Ticket and does not have a flight date scheduled, their Award Ticket will be open for a future flight on the same route, season and cabin.

The Award Ticket will be open for 1 (one) year after the original issuing date, so the trip must be completed within said validity period. Route or cabin changes are not applicable to new Award Tickets. However, there might be a tax and Premier Point difference between the original Award Ticket and the new one. Said difference must be covered when the new Award Ticket is issued. The issuing of the new Award Ticket is subject to seat availability on the desired flight.

  • With over $1,800 in available statement credits, this is a premium travel rewards card with benefits galore. (Terms apply.) Note: Aside from the listed bonus categories, earn 1X on all other eligible purchases.
  • The Platinum card hasn't shed its travel roots, but itÔÇÖs expanded beyond to become a lifestyle card with perks like Uber, Saks Fifth Avenue, Equinox, and more. (Enrollment required)
  • Amex Membership Rewards points are extremely flexible, with the option to redeem for travel directly through Amex Travel or transfer to a wide range of airline and hotel partners.

Pros

  • A wide array of travel and lifestyle credits and exclusive access that can enhance your life.
  • There is no better card for the breadth and variety of airport lounge access worldwide. Plus, the Centurion Lounge network is the largest amongst credit card issuers.
  • One of the best cards to earn points on airfare: 5 points per dollar on airfare purchased directly with airlines or through the Amex Travel portal (on up to $500,000 of airfare purchases per calendar year).

Cons

  • High annual fee that will require a bit of work to fully maximize.
  • Besides airfare and select hotels, it's not the best card to use for other purchases as it only earns 1X on categories outside of flights booked directly with the airlines (5X) or through the Amex Travel portal (5X on up to $500,000 of airfare purchases per calendar year) and 5X points for prepaid hotels booked with Amex Travel.
  • Car rental insurance is only secondary, not primary as it is with premium cards from Chase and Capital One.

Instant Transfers as well as solid transfer partners. The value would go up if they had any hotel partners with a fair exchange rate. ANA (an exception to instant transfers), Virgin, Air Canada and Avianca are top airline partners for maximizing your points. They can also transfer to Delta if you wish and while the rates aren't ideal, they can transfer to Marriott and Hilton as well.  ANA provides almost unbeatable value for booking a Round the World flight all in Business Class. The stated value also assumes you will take advantage of transfer partners rather than book via their booking portal, where they are only worth between 1 and 1.5 cents. We've also created a Guide to American Express Membership Rewards.

  • Amazing Membership Rewards points earning rate for 6 popular business spending categories
  • No Preset Spending Limit
  • Card membership includes the very well regarded American Express customer service

Pros

  • You can't beat the 4X points on 2 out of the following 6 categories each month: U.S. advertising and media, U.S. gas stations, U.S. electronic goods retailers and software & cloud system providers, U.S. restaurants, U.S. wireless telephone service providers, and U.S. Transit
  • Although the annual fee seems high, if you max out the 4X on $150,000 in purchases, that earns you 600,000 Membership Rewards points which Your Best Credit Cards values at around $10,000
  • Card membership includes the very well regarded American Express customer service

Cons

  • The high annual fee, despite being worth it for high spenders
  • If you spend well over $150,000 a year in these categories, you may max it out and remaining spend earns at just 1X.
  • Car rental CDW coverage is secondary to your own auto insurance

When used on Wanna Get Away fares, 1.3 cents is the approximate value you get. On certain international routeswith high taxes, however, you may be able to yield close to 2 cents. Those are the exceptions to the rule, though, so I peg the value at 1.4 cents.

Hyatt award rates range from 3,500 to 45,000 points per night at their regular hotels and resorts. At all-inclusive resorts and Miraval, the prices can reach as high as 58,000 points per night, Almost without fail, during even remotely peak times, we can find roughly 2 cents per point in value. You can even book Suites for incrementally more points (Premium Suite costs twice as much as a room, for example). I tend to find these are one of the best ways to spend Chase Ultimate Rewards points which transfer 1:1. They are the only major hotel program in the US with fixed award charts making it a great program to be able to set goals for your redemptions..

Since AAdvantage moved to revenue based redemptions, they are a bit less valuable than they used to be. However, they can still book First and Business Class seats on oneworld partner airlines like Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines, and we also find that they can have occasional deals with forward cabin seats on American.

Bonus Offer

Earn 60,000 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $6,000 in 6 months. Terms apply.

Get a 40% transfer bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Hilton.

Offer expires on May 31, 2024

** For personal Amex Platinum cardholders only **

Platinum Card┬« Members get 40% more Hilton HonorsÔäó Points when you transfer Membership Rewards┬« points through from May 9 to May 31. Offer is only available to current Platinum Card Members on a Platinum Account opened on or before April 20, 2024. Terms apply.

Please note: This transfer bonus is part of the American Express 40th Birthday celebration for The Platinum Card┬« from American Express. Only personal U.S. Platinum Card┬« cardholders are eligible. It seems that those holding personal Platinum cards like the Schwab Platinum Card are elso eligible – however, many people that are eligible are not seeing the offer in their account so make sure you see the 40% bonus before transfering!

While it’s always hard to recommend speculative transfers, Hilton points have gotten more attractive since announcing that SLH hotels will be fully integrated into Hilton Honors (See Dave’s recent musing about his thinking on how Hilton points may be becoming more valuable). And as long as you have at least the lowest tier Hilton status, the 5th night is free on any award and resort fees are also waived on award stays.

We value an Amex point at 1.7 cents and a Hilton point at 0.5 cents and while those values are average, with a 5th night free award you can definitely do well transfering 1,000 Amex points for 2,800 Hilton Honors points.

Our advice is to run some sample searches for potential redemptions to see the value you’re likely to get before transfering.

Get a 20% transfer bonus when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Aeromexico Rewards.

Offer expires on May 31, 2024

Here’s an interesting one. Aeromexico Rewards points are worth *roughly* 0.75 cents each but with a wide range of ways to redeem.

Normally, you get 1.6 Aeromexico points for 1 Membership Rewards points so that bumps to 1,920 Aeromexico for 1,000 Amex under this ptomotion – so almost 2.1.

Aeromexico uses a range of redemption options including standard fixed awards and flexible awards – and you’ll see what’s available by searching and that does not require an account.

The last Aeromexico transfer bonus was in 2019, so these are pretty rare – though 20% isn’t a total game changer.

You can search here (use Google Translate in your browser if available as it’s in Spanish) to check possible redemptions.

Importantly, note the Aeromexico Rewards cancellation policy which is that, well, you can’t cancel it. You can change it, though.

Award Ticket may not be cancelled or reimbursed. If the Member decides not to use the Award Ticket and does not have a flight date scheduled, their Award Ticket will be open for a future flight on the same route, season and cabin.

The Award Ticket will be open for 1 (one) year after the original issuing date, so the trip must be completed within said validity period. Route or cabin changes are not applicable to new Award Tickets. However, there might be a tax and Premier Point difference between the original Award Ticket and the new one. Said difference must be covered when the new Award Ticket is issued. The issuing of the new Award Ticket is subject to seat availability on the desired flight.

Instant Transfers as well as solid transfer partners. The value would go up if they had any hotel partners with a fair exchange rate. ANA (an exception to instant transfers), Virgin, Air Canada and Avianca are top airline partners for maximizing your points. They can also transfer to Delta if you wish and while the rates aren't ideal, they can transfer to Marriott and Hilton as well.  ANA provides almost unbeatable value for booking a Round the World flight all in Business Class. The stated value also assumes you will take advantage of transfer partners rather than book via their booking portal, where they are only worth between 1 and 1.5 cents. We've also created a Guide to American Express Membership Rewards.

Hyatt award rates range from 3,500 to 45,000 points per night at their regular hotels and resorts. At all-inclusive resorts and Miraval, the prices can reach as high as 58,000 points per night, Almost without fail, during even remotely peak times, we can find roughly 2 cents per point in value. You can even book Suites for incrementally more points (Premium Suite costs twice as much as a room, for example). I tend to find these are one of the best ways to spend Chase Ultimate Rewards points which transfer 1:1. They are the only major hotel program in the US with fixed award charts making it a great program to be able to set goals for your redemptions..

Alaska miles have a few things going for them that make them worth a bit more than the average mile, especially to Asia, Fiji, and the South Pacific where they still have separate charts with great rates on First and Business Class. However, since joining Oneworld, they are increasingly making awards more expensive as they integrate new programs. They also partner with luxury Taiwan based Starlux. Additionally, only Marriott points transfer to Alaska making them harder to acquire than most.
