American Express customers with cards issued in the U.S. can now transfer their Membership Rewards to Qantas Frequent Flyer in 500 point increments.
Transferring Membership Rewards points from Amex to Qantas Frequent Flyer is possible 1:1 in increments of 500, which might be useful depending on the exact amount needed to be transferred.
You can find the transfer option in your online Amex card account under Membership Rewards – Airline Transfers :

You have to look closer at the chart and add up the mileage of your desired city pairing. There might be a great surprise in terms of redemption value.

I like the transfer bonus promotions which we regularly cover here on LoyaltyLobby. Those provide a significant value considering the bonus is sometimes up to 50% (like they have it sometimes with British Airways).
