Step 4: Go back to the Exchange Points page and click on the "use to get miles" section again. Once the page refreshes, your preferred airline partner appears, and you can enter the number of points to transfer in the exchange rate section.

If you have an American Express Credit Card, you can transfer the membership rewards points to the Honors Program as well. The ratio of transfers depends on your region, but most transfer partners use a ratio of 1:2. This means that for every 1000 membership rewards transferred, you receive 2000 Hilton points.

However, the numerous options in the market may make it impossible to settle on one deal over the others. Plus, comparing the different options could be time-consuming if you lead a busy life. This is where third-party sites come in.
