    I have a Gold Business AMEX with 250,000 points that I want to close due to fee increases since I also have a Platinum card. I can't transfer the miles to my other AMEX card. Any suggestions on options to transfer for the best value?

    Or to Starwood if you want to keep your options open.

    But at a horrible conversion ratio, relatively speaking. I'd rather commit to something than have the flexibility to move such a smaller stash in the future.

    To say nothing of the uncertainty surrounding the future of SPG post-merger and what partner options will remain.

    Why move anything. If two Amex cards contribute to the same MR account and you close one (the gold card here, keeping the Plat), then the MR points stay in place and you keep earning points with the remaining card. Or does Amex distinguish between business and personal accounts, I.e., do they not combine into one account?

    And why are we suddenly answering questions that are older than a year? The OP never came back after asking the question and getting no answer.

    IME they can be the same. But the OP said they were not. I have no idea why.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
