Title: Transferring Starwood Points to Avios
Post by: Aeajda1 on December 02, 2012, 08:39:37 PM
Hello All

I need to transfer Starwood points to Avios as I understand to fly from NY to Toronto, it is only 9000 points RT. I also know that there is typically a 25% bonus on transferred points. If I transfer only 7200 Starwood points to Avios, will that net me 9000 points? Does anyone know if I need to transfer a minimum number of points, in general?

Looking for any and all guidance.

Thanks

Every second person on the street should have Amex, do a simple trade with someone. I believe people will be interested.

Don't you need a membership rewards account? And if you do, don't you need an MR linked card to get one?

No. Have the seller transfer it str8 to your Avios account
