  • Certain online purchases are also eligible for redemption. Sites like Amazon may offer 0.7 cents per point.

How to Transfer Amex Points to Chase

American Express Memberships Rewards is considered a flexible point program, which will make points transfers easy. However, you cannot simply transfer Amex points to your Chase account. Instead, you have to "pool" points into a partner program that works with both Amex and Chase.

Here are popular programs where you can pool your Chase Ultimate Rewards points and American Express Membership Rewards points:


Aer Lingus

Air Canada

British Airways




Singapore Airlines

Virgin Atlantic

World of Hyatt

IHG Rewards Club

Marriott Rewards

Note that transfers can take 48 hours - 1 week to process. This can make things tricky as air prices fluctuate suddenly. Not only that, there aren't a lot of options for pooling Chase Ultimate Rewards points and American Express Membership Rewards points. There are other ways to get the most out of your Amex points.
