    Hello

    Just wondering if there is an economical way (meaning having a 1 to 1 ratio) of converting into Turkish miles from American Express Platinum card?

    Thanks a lot!

    Basil

    Nope. Only Citi ThankYou points transfer to TK at a rate of 1:1. Marriott Bonvoy points transfer at 3:1 (which is their standard for most airlines).

    Frequent Miler has created a spreadsheet where he lists transferable currencies and where they transfer to. It's a great resource to bookmark. The original post is old but there's a link to a Google Docs spreadsheet that's kept up-to-date:

    @basil yaqub -- You can, however, book flights on Turkish using Amex points. They have other partners, like Aeroplan and ANA that you can transfer points to.
