    Hi,

    According to a set of T&Cs I have with my Amex card, it used to be possible to transfer your membership rewards points to another persons account if you close down your account, unfortunately this clause now seems to have been removed from the latest set of T&Cs. Can anyone confirm whether this is still possible please?

    Many thanks.

    It's not possible, and I believe the reason for this is that there were issues with people buying and selling points from each other.

    However, depending on how you want to use them, there are transfer routes via partner schemes. For example we quite often transfer my wife's points to Hilton Honors, where we can then move them to my Hilton Honors account. If you contact Amex, they.will be able to tell you whether a partner scheme allows this - the first time I transferred via Hilton Amex were happy to explain this. (Also note that transfers from brand new accounts are often not permitted, e.g. Hilton accounts have to be open for 60 days)
