I have points in my AMEX Membership Rewards account that I want to transfer to Qantas. Does anyone know how long it takes for the transfer to clear? There is a flight I want to book, but I think it might be gone within the next day or two, so don’t want to transfer the points if it takes a minimum of 2 days. I can’t find any recent info on transfer times anywhere.
I was looking at this a couple of weeks back - I swore I read a page that said 1 business day, but I can’t find it now.
In any case, I made the transfer at 8:15am and received the points between 6:00 and 6:45am the next morning.
You might need to log in to view that link though. If that link doesn’t work, log in to your account and proceed to the rewards page as if you would if you were transferring points. When they show you a selection of transfer partners, click on terms and conditions on the right of the “login to redeem” page.
