I’m looking at closing my Amex account to then reopen in 18 months and (hopefully) secure a sign-up bonus of circa 100k. (Based on my calcs/spend the total points earn surpasses just keeping the Amex open, but happy to be corrected.)
Assuming I’ll lose my points if I close the Amex, I’m looking at where to move my points.
I generally use Velocity FF and would be looking to buy an international flight in the next 2-3 years. Given award availability and destinations, I’m thinking that transferring Amex to Krisflyer as a ‘holding’ account would be better than transferring to Velocity and then having to transfer on again to Krisflyer once I decide on destination.
Are there any other options I should be aware of?
