I have 32k amex in wife's account that I need to cancel, so not to pay $250 amex gold AF.

I also have 64k amex in my account, thats no need to get rid of.

What's my best bet? Selling just my wife's, or selling both of our (if that helps)? Or just transferring to an airline or hotel, and if the last option, which program is the best?

TIA.

Thanks. Don't think I will apply for another card at the moment.

Was offered 1.05 for 32k amex. Definitely not selling for that rate. Which amex transfer partner would be the best one when selling points? Quantas (based on this threads wiki)?

I can always transfer more points from my account to sell more at a time.

The best value will be when you transfer them to someone’s account. You can get .006 per point. You’re limited to 100k transfer per a calendar year.

In my opinion the prices for miles are depressed because the cash prices are very low now.
