Hoping the AFF community can offer some recommendations where to transfer my 69,000 Amex MR points.

Need / Background:

I need to fly to Turkey next April as my son was lucky enough to get his name drawn out in the Gallipoli ballot. I need to get two rewards tickets, hopefully business class for myself and economy for my son (his girlfriend is coming as well who will be travelling discounted economy)

My frequent flyer memberships include:

- Bronze Qantas club member with 310,000 frequent flyer points
- Silver Velocity member with 156,000 frequent flyer points
- Gold Aegean miles and bonus member with 66,000 award miles

Well MH have a 15% bonus if you transfer by 31st Oct 2014.

69,000 by 1.15 = 79,350.
If you are not yet a MH Enrich Member you will get 1,000 points for joining for free = 80,350

You can get two business seats one way for 102,000 (51,000 each) plus taxes.

You can pay extra $ to bridge the gap at an attractive rate.

Or if you have an AMEX Edge which earns at three points per $, then to get the extra 21,650 then a few days prior to 31 Oct spend 21, 650/ (3x1.15) = $6276. However points to MH go in 500 increments and in this case have 15% added a few weeks later =575 points.

So you will need to transfer 22,000 points. Spend $6377. You can bu gift cards fora wide range of future spend from groceries to movies to petrol to department stores and many more.


For you other one way flights use some of your points in other programs to redeem one way redemptions.
