    I have a SPG AMEX card and would like to convert points to miles. The 'catch' in all of this is that I'd like to convert the points into miles for my wife's AA account. Can this be done?

    I think if you add her as an additional card member you'll be able to mange both accounts from one portal and then assign her FF to that account for transfers. At least this is how it works with AmEx cards that accrue MR.

    Aren't SPG points transferable to another SPG account? You can transfer your Starpoints to your wife's SPG account, and then she can convert her Starpoints to AA herself.

    True, Pointshogger! SPG points are transferable to the account of another person who shares the giver's street address (which I assume Chef4u & his wife do ;) ! )

    Yep, same address and you are good to go! :) And don't forget to transfer 20K at a time to get your 5K bonus!
