As long as you link your accounts, you’ll be able to see both your BA or Qatar Airways balances in either account. You can do so here

Qatar Airways has very advantageous pricing to the Maldives… with this bonus you’d only need 62k Citi Thank You to fly the world’s best business class.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

    It says American Express is included. Does this mean Amex Membership Rewards count too?

    • Miles June 5, 2022

      Qatar isn’t a transfer partner of Amex in the US, so it’d be reserved for accounts that have Qatar as a transfer partner

  • tassojunior June 2, 2022

    You don’t say if they are transferable within Avios to BA, Iberia or Aer Lingus Avios as other Avios are.

    • Miles June 3, 2022

      I don’t know why they wouldn’t be
