AmEx Membership Rewards does Not transfer directly into AmericaWest Flightfund. Continental Onepass used to be an indirect way, but no longer. Any ideas on an available indirect way without heavy point devaluation? Would also consider American Advantage as another indirect alternative.

MR to Aadvantage does not work (very heavy heavy dilution). Not sure about HP

There is a mileage/point converter at http://www.webflyer.com. If it can be done, it will tell you how, and what the resulting points/miles will be.

To AA, 100k points will get you 33k miles
To HP, 100k points will get you 33.3k miles
To HP via CO, 100k points will get you 20k miles

Not sure how quickly you need this done, but you can move MR to US Scare.

Presumably, once the merger goes through your Flight Fund account would get merged with the Dividend Miles account.... (of course if the merger doesn't go through, you might be stuck with US Scare miles)

The most direct route is thru Starwood, but you get killed on the conversion ratios. If you just want to use your points to get a HP award ticket, transfer them to VS 1:1 and book the HP tickets thru them. I have done this successfully several times. (Obviously, call VS and place the tickets on hold prior to transfering the points over, tobe sure seats are avail).
