American Express seems to be on a mission to tweak its frequent flyer partner list in Singapore lately, either intentionally or otherwise! Back in May Emirates Skywards was abruptly removed from the list of options, going missing for nearly a month before being re-added, a process that then caused Thai Airways’ Royal Orchid Plus programme to mysteriously vanish for 24 hours.
The latest change is a simple and welcome addition to the list of options. Amex Membership Rewards points in Singapore can now be transferred into the Qantas Frequent Flyer programme, a fourth oneworld transfer option for a range of credit cards including the Amex Platinum, Gold and Centurion.

You’re now able to transfer blocks of 450 American Express Rewards points to transfer into 250 Qantas Frequent Flyer points, the standard ratio for Amex to airline miles transfers.
