I always managed to transfer SPG to different accounts with different names. Perhaps with MR might still work too.

+100
Spoke to large broker this morning and he is saying its a no go. Amex automatically populates the AH name when trying to link a FF account as the members name and if it doesnt match then it wont link.

Wonder if that'll last with the amount of AU this will bring to Amex.
