  • Earn an annual free night award after your card renewal month (with a redemption level of up to 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points - or 50,000 if you "top off" with up to 15,000 of your own additional points) with the opportunity to earn an additional free night award from spend
  • A solid 7% room rate discount at 8,500+ properties participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program
  • Complimentary Marriott Bonvoy elite status (Gold) and 15 annual elite credits with your card membership

Pros

  • Earn 4x Marriott Bonvoy points at a wide variety of everyday business categories, including restaurants worldwide, U.S. gas stations, wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers and U.S. purchases for shipping.
  • Free night awards galore! You'll earn one upon card renewal with the opportunity to earn an additional free night award after spending $60,000+ in a calendar year
  • Complimentary Gold elite status for 25% bonus points on Marriott purchases, 2 p.m. (based on availability) late checkout and space-available enhanced room upgrades

Cons

  • $125 annual fee
  • Free night award is capped at 35,000 points, although you can use up to 15,000 points of your own to increase that to a 50,000 point room

While Marriott Bonvoy dropped all award charts in favor of a dynamic pricing system, it hasn't gotten out of hand and the 5th night free on awards can still provide outsized value. It's also hard to beat the breadth of Marriott Bonvoy properties all over the world.

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.

Delta uses a fully dynamic pricing model on most awards, with the program aiming to offer you about 1.1 to 1.2 cents per point. However, you can still occasionally get much more value, especially during SkyMiles Flash Sales. Note that while you can book SkyTeam alliance flights with Delta SkyMiles, you cannot book international First Class on any SkyMiles partner.

  • Very high earn rate for all spend at Hilton properties (12X)
  • Comes with complimentary Hilton Gold elite status
  • You'll get up to $60 in statement credits each quarter at Hilton family hotels

Pros

  • If you stay at Hilton Hotels often, the 12X earn rate on Hilton Hotels will really add up.
  • You'll get up to $60 in statement credits each quarter at Hilton family hotels
  • Includes mid-tier Hilton Gold status, a way to spend to Diamond status, and you can spend your way to up to two free nights at any Hilton property in the world.

Cons

  • The card only earns Hilton Honors points, so you would not be able to redeem them for stays at other hotel chains.
  • Earning a specific type of co-branded point, like Hilton Honors points, limits your redemption opportunities and your points balance may be worth less over time if the program changes how points are redeemed.
  • The card no longer includes Priority Pass lounge access or the ability to earn Free Night Reward certificates

Since Hilton moved to a variable pricing model, on average you'll be offered roughly a 0.5 cent value per point. What is nice is that although the pricing is mostly variable, they still cap the "standard" redemption rate on all properties. With the 5th night free on all award stays and resort fees waived on award stays, it's very possible to well exceed this value - even getting 1-2 cents per point - when used wisely.

Delta uses a fully dynamic pricing model on most awards, with the program aiming to offer you about 1.1 to 1.2 cents per point. However, you can still occasionally get much more value, especially during SkyMiles Flash Sales.

Earn 40,000 Membership Rewards® Points after you spend $3,000 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.

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.
