Is it possible to transfer Membership Rewards or Citi Rewards points to a Skywards account in a different name?

I am looking to transfer Amex points (or Citibank rewards if necessary) to my partners Emirates Skywards account. It seems this is possible in the US if the partner is a secondary cardholder, but it appears this isn’t the case in Australia.

Is there anyway to transfer points into a an account held in a partners name?

I’m not familiar with Emirates Skywards, but I do know that as of about 12 months ago, it was possible to transfer Amex MR points between different accounts for a flat fee of about $20-40.  If it’s worth your while, the best thing might be to have your partner open up their own Amex account?  Make sure it’s a card that earns MR points, not airline points/miles.

Interested to hear your experiences with Emirates Skywards.  From what I’ve seen, redemption rates are high, presume you’d in most cases be better off crediting Emirates flights to Qantas, even for future Emirates redemptions.

  • I thought about that however my partner took advantage of the 100000 bonus points with the Velocity Platinum card last month so not really keen on applying for another Amex card only weeks later, bad timing it seems.

    Joined Skywards a few years ago when there was some decent deals with the Citibank Emirates card but both the card and Skywards has gone downhill. While availability is always quite good, the redemption rates just keep getting higher so once these points are gone I’ll probably focus on other programs.
