Credit Card Points Transfer Partners Chart

The Chart below includes American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and Marriott.

Abbreviations: BA= British Airways; AA= American Airlines, AS= Alaska Airlines, QF= Qantas, SQ= Singapore, UA= United Airlines, AC= Air Canada, DL= Delta, AF= Air France, and EY= Etihad.

  • (e.g., If it says BA, that means you can use British Airways’ award system to find award space. You can then book that award space with either British Airways or another OneWorld Partner airline such as American Airlines.)

Fuel Surcharges– Some airlines charge a fee called a fuel surcharge on an award, which can add hundreds of dollars to your “free” ticket with points. However, some programs don’t pass on partner’s fuel surcharges for all partners (e.g., United or LifeMiles), but some programs pass on fuel surcharges for some partners and none for others. It is pretty complex, so visit our fuel surcharge page.

  • Abbrevations: $ (under $100), $$ ($101-200), $$$ ($201-300), $$$$ ($300-400), and $$$$$ ($400+)
