Does the regular Gold Card let you transfer points to miles?

Postby bmw1990Z » Sat Mar 24, 2012 8:26 am

I am considering applying for the gold card. But I am curious if with the regular gold card, you can transfer points earned to airline miles like you can with the mr version of the charge card? Thanks

what do you mean by "mr version" of the charge card? the green, gold, and prg all earn mr points. the platinum and centurion earn mr first points... the gold card allows you to transfer points to airlines

Like 321 said, Green, Gold and Premier Rewards Gold all earn Membership Rewards; Platinum and Centurian Membership Rewards First and the Zync Membership Rewards Express. If you have a higher level charge card and a lower level charge card, you automatically have all points go to the higher reward level.

Deville, question. If you have a zync account and open a gold account, will they convert your zync points to MR points?

Yes they will. The higher MR tier will take preference.

Membership Rewards are worth more for travel such as upgrades and redeeming for airline tickets.

This is good to know. I was on the phone with amex asking about this card and however the person was could not get me an answer about whether the basic gold charge card could let you use your mr points for airline miles. Thanks guys!
