American Express Membership Reward Point Transfers to Frontier Airlines Ending on March 4, 2015
I just received an email from American Express regarding my AMEX PRG and AMEX Platinum Mercedes Benz credit cards with the ominous opening of “We are writing to provide you with an important notice regarding the account referenced above.” Here are the 2 announcements from American Express. I haven’t heard about this before, so I thought it was worth sharing for those of you who transfer Membership Reward Points to Frontier Airlines.
Frontier: Effective March 5, 2015, Frontier Airlines will no longer be a point transfer airline
in the Membership Rewards program. Any Membership Rewards point transfers for
Frontier Airlines must be made by March 4, 2015. These transfers will be considered final,
non-refundable, and subject to the EarlyReturns® program terms and conditions. To
transfer points to Frontier, please visit membershiprewards.com/travel.
For completeness, here is the other announcement regarding Membership Reward Point transfers to Delta Airlines:
Delta: We recently informed you of an annual limit on the number of Membership Rewards
points that you can transfer into the SkyMiles® Program. This change is canceled. There is
no annual limit to the number of points you can transfer to the SkyMiles Program.
Remember, you may only transfer a maximum of 999,000 points to a single SkyMiles
account per day.
Last but not least, I wanted to remind everyone that the 40% transfer bonus to British Airways Avios goes through January 31, 2015. Click here to learn more about the transfer bonus.
