Is It Worth Transferring AMEX Membership Rewards Points to Starwood and Then to Airline Partners?

Million Mile Secrets reader Joyce emails:

My husband traveled for his job so we always had miles and points to work with.  He is retired now so I am the person looking for the least expensive options for traveling on our dime.  Your posts are extremely helpful and I love investigating all of the options for accumulating miles and points.

My question is:  Can I transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to my Starwood Preferred Guest account?  And then transfer those same points from Starwood Preferred Guest to an airline with the 25% bonus (I know I will need to transfer in 20,000 point increments)?

Yes.  Joyce can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Starwood and then to airline partners.  She’ll get a bonus 5,000 miles for every 20,000 AMEX points she transfers.
