AMEX MR Points Airline Transfer Times Master Thread
« on: August 24, 2010, 01:32:01 PM »
Post here with:
-When you initiated the AMEX MR transfer.
-Which airline you transferred to.
-When the miles reached the airline account.
-If you transferred to an airline account with a different name or a matching name than the AMEX account.

I made a transfer last week from AMEX to Continental.
The names on the 2 accounts were different.
The miles posted immediately.

 Dan is it a good idea to post that the pts went to an acct that it shoudlnt have. No problem if  these threads are put into TP. Otherwise its alerting MR whats going on and that the pts might be being sold, in which case if tehy see it happening alot from alot of people maybe they will stop it from happening.

OK alittle paranoid on my part, but I like being Safe then being Sorry, a sit will affect those who arent selling the pts but still have needs to move them to other accts. eg using your Miles in your acct to get an Award tkt for someone that doesnt have the Status you do and then they will simplytransfer the pts into your acct via MR. No sale taking place just helpinga friend where if that loophole is closed it will shut this down from happening as well

Also, maybe (eventually) we can have a summary at the beginning of the feedback in the posts.

AMEX knows their points can be transferred to anyone.
It's discussed openly on FT in many thread as well as other forums.

If they stop allowing it, it won't be because of this thread.  ::)

So if I have 30K MR points under my name and I'm missing 5K and 7K to reach awards on 2 seperate airline accounts under my name and 2 5K and 7K under my wifes name, I can use those 30K to fill in the gaps even under my wifes name? Do I put in her name on the tranfer (when it's to her account airline account but my MR points) or mine? Or does it not ask you for name?

Thanks

You put in her full name as it apears on her airline account. No problem using your MR.

Aeroplan, Continental and Delta - all diff. names - all instant - you just need to sign out and back in to your account to see the points.

As for Delta, with promo's like the 20-25% transfer bonus, my personal experience was that the bonus posted instantly along with the miles (even though it says the bonus will post in 4-6 weeks) however a friend mentioned that his bonus points did not transfer instantly.

A word to the foolish, like me, who thought that the amount of points I needed to transfer to get to 100,000 with a 25% bonus, would be 75,000, but as you probably realized by now, this is not true. You would actually need to transfer 80,000 to get the 100,000.
