Hi everyone,
Points required and taxes are pretty high for apartments from Aus to EU long haul.

Are there any ways to use Amex MR points to get either down lower?
All I seem to see is about 400k amex MR points converted to etihad guest and $1500aud in taxes/surcharges

In the old days (i.e. before July 31st this year) I would transfer 400K to SPG for 200K SPG points and then wait for the transfer bonus to American (20K SPG -> 32.5K AA points) which would give me 325K AA = 1 Apartment return to EU plus $600 taxes approx.

Doesn't help you (or me) now with the forthcoming Amex -> SPG devaluation.

ahh, so you essentially got apartments for 400k MR points +$600 in taxes,
a rough saving of $1000 AUD

very good,

but I cant find any and I seem to keep on gravitating towards kris program!
