Certainly! The process of transferring Membership Rewards points to airline and hotel partners typically involves the following steps:

  1. Log in to your American Express account: Start by logging in to your online American Express account. If you don't have an account, you will need to create one.
  2. Navigate to the Membership Rewards section: Once you are logged in, navigate to the Membership Rewards section. This can usually be found under the "Rewards" or "Membership" tab on your account page.
  3. Select the transfer option: Within the Membership Rewards section, locate the option to transfer points to airline and hotel partners. This option may be labeled differently depending on your specific American Express card, but it generally can be found under a tab like "Travel" or "Transfer to Partners".
  4. Choose the partner: Once you have accessed the transfer section, you will see a list of American Express airline and hotel partners. Select the partner you wish to transfer your points to. Popular partners include Delta Air Lines, British Airways, Marriott Bonvoy, Hilton Honors, and many more.
  5. Provide recipient details: After selecting the desired partner, you will usually be asked to enter the recipient's details. This may include providing your frequent flyer or loyalty program account number, as well as your personal information.
  6. Transfer points: Once all the required recipient details are completed, you can specify the number of points you wish to transfer. Make sure to review and double-check the details before proceeding.
  7. Confirm the transfer: After specifying the transfer amount, you will be prompted to confirm the transfer. Confirm the transfer and be aware that the transfer process may take some time depending on the partner.
  8. Verify the transfer: After the transfer is completed, verify that the points have been successfully transferred by checking your loyalty program or frequent flyer account.


It's important to note that the process may vary slightly depending on the specific American Express card you hold and the partners available to you. Always review the terms and conditions and any applicable fees associated with transfers before proceeding.
