Can You Convert the AMEX Blue Card to an AMEX Everyday Card to Transfer Your Points to Travel Partners?

Million Mile Secrets reader, RS, commented:

Can I convert my American Express Blue card (10 years old) to an AMEX EveryDay card?  Currently the points are not much value to me other than cash.  I have collected a lot of points from Costco purchases and would love to be able to transfer them to airline and hotel partners.

I would lose history if the card is converted right?  What happens to my points?

Yes, you should be able to convert your card!

Keep Your AMEX Membership Rewards Points Active With No Annual Fees

Million Mile Secrets reader, Karen, commented:

One question which I haven’t seen addressed anywhere is what card you recommend to keep from having our AMEX Membership Rewards points disappear.  My understanding is that if you don’t have an active AMEX Membership Rewards card, the points are forfeited.  Once the Costco AMEX disappears, what should we replace it with to keep our AMEX Membership Rewards points active?  Thanks.

Great question, Karen!

You need at least 1 card that’s linked to your AMEX Membership Rewards program number or you will lose ALL your points.

Having the Costco AMEX won’t help you because it does NOT earn AMEX Membership Rewards points, only cash back.  So Karen must have another card that DOES earn AMEX Membership Rewards points.

Keep Your AMEX Membership Rewards Points Active With No Annual Fees

You’ll Lose ALL of Your AMEX Membership Rewards Points Unless You Have at Least 1 Card Linked to Your Membership Rewards Program Number

The best way to keep the points active and transferable is to open an AMEX EveryDay® or AMEX EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card.

I’ll explain!

Hello Daraius!  Could you do a post or list here all of the airlines that don’t assess fuel surcharges for award tickets?  Thanks for all that you do.

Hi Robert!  That sounds like a good idea!

Some airlines add fuel charges to their award tickets.  These extra charges can add hundreds of dollars to your “free” award seat!

Which card(s) have the most benefits for annual spending?  I spend more than $5,000 a month on credit cards these days, but I feel like I ran out of options for sign-up bonuses as I’ve had most of the cards in the past.
