I am interested to know if there is any restriction or means of getting Qantas Frequent Flyer Points over to the Starwood Preferred Guest Program (Sheraton). If it can be done, is it a 1:1 arrangment?
And according to Starwood you can move your points into UA MP at the rate of 1000 points to 600 UA MP miles. If you're earning AMEX points at the rate of 1.5 points per $1 spent, that isn't too bad a price to pay in the absence of any direct one-to-one transfer schemes from the major credit card companies.MetroAir said:Yes, 1:1 transfer.
Well I don't think so... this is from the AMEX (Australia) website:RTWFF said:Is it 1000 Amex = 1000 Starwood? I couldn't find it on the Amex Membership Rewards page
Sadly, I think you're correct....I misread the detail.M@rcoPolo said:Well I don't think so... this is from the AMEX (Australia) website:RTWFF said:Is it 1000 Amex = 1000 Starwood? I couldn't find it on the Amex Membership Rewards page
1,000 Membership Rewards points equals 330 Starpoints
Then for the transfer to UA this is from the Starwood website:
United Airlines Mileage Plus 2:1
So the way I read it I can either transfer my 1,000 AMEX Points to QF as 1,000 points or to UA as 165 miles...
Somebody please tell me I'm wrong as I'd LOVE to be able to transfer my AMEX points to UA but not at the above ratio...
