Delta to Limit American Express Membership Reward Points Transfer
Delta Air Lines announced it will begin to limit the number of points that can be transferred into a SkyMiles frequent flyer account from partners such as American Express Membership Rewards, Diners Club Club Rewards, Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, and Hilton HHonors.
American Express announced this week how the change will impact its program. Starting on January 1, 2015, Delta will limit the total number of points that can be transferred from a single Membership Rewards account to one or more Delta SkyMiles accounts to 250,000 points in a single calendar year. In addition, the total number of Membership Rewards points that can be transferred into any one Delta SkyMiles account will also be 250,000 in a single calendar year.
Currently, it is possible to transfer up to 999,999 Membership Rewards points to a single Delta SkyMiles account per day with no yearly restriction.
Delta is the last major U.S. airline that is still a Membership Rewards transfer partner.
