Transferring Amex Points to Hilton HHonors
Last week I wrote about transferring my American Express Membership Rewards points to Virgin Atlantic and then transferring from there to Hilton HHonors, doubling the number of points since Virgin Atlantic to Hilton HHonors converts 1:2. I also wrote that Virgin Atlantic claims the process can take up to 30 days but that many on Flyer Talk said it happened faster. I am pleased to report my 50,000 Amex Membership Reward points posted as 100,000 Hilton HHonors points yesterday – about a week after converting from Virgin Atlantic! 🙂
Not my ideal use for those points but I am happy I’ll be able to book my Hilton HHonors AXON award for my Japan trip before the Hilton devaluation at the end of the month.
