    Can anyone help me? I am one of 4 partners in a business. We are looking to use a credit card that will allow us to have airline reward programs. We would like the points to be uncapped for the frequent flyer program. Also allowing each partner to access the points accumulated and then use them for flights on any airline (prefer QF). I have phoned several banks - but typically I haved had the run around. Can anyone suggest the best credit card to allow us to redeem points uncapped and then share the points.

    As far as I know there is no credit card membership reward program that will allow you to transfer points to multiple FF accounts. Typically the name of the card holder would need to match the name of the account holder in the FF program.

    There are ways around this by moving credit card membership reward points to SPG hotel guest program and then within SPG you can move points around to different accounts and then to the required FF program. By taking this path you lose some value in credit card points. For example 1,000 Amex points converts to 330 SPG points and then 20,000 SPG points converts to 25,000 AA miles, KrisFlyer miles etc.

    There is a wealth of information on this website. Whis is best suited to you? That is for you to decide. If you do a search of AFF you will find mention of credit cards that have no cap on the amount of points you can earn, point laundering (eg Amex to SPG to KrisFlyer) and FF programs.

    Good luck.

    Diners will let you transfer to:

    QF: 1 reward point = 1 QFF point
    NZ: 100 rewards points = 1 airpoints dollar
    SQ: 2 rewards points = 1 KrisFlyer mile

    As JohnK stated, I believe card holdres name must match name attached to FF program

    I am not sure but you might like to call ANZ about their BusinessOne program. I think that our company uses their CC for payments and the is able to transfer points to various people.

    This is only what I have heard and I can't confirm it but I thought you might like to follow it up anyway.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I will give ANZ another go. They gave me the run a round last time I tried.
