B. Transfer Partners
Amex Membership Rewards (Amex MR)
Capital One (Cap 1) While these transfer 2 points to 1.5 miles with most carriers, you are earning effectively 1.5 miles on general spending on their annual fee miles cards prior to any bonuses, and they have a decent amount of bonuses with some different partners, so I like it.
Chase Ultimate Rewards (Chase UR)
Citi Thank You Points
(While Marriot is a partner of many airlines, much more than any above transfer partner, I don't include Marriott because I typically don't recommend a transfer from Marriott points to miles except in rare cases with specific redemptions in mind or doing a bonus promo period, i.e. a pricey multiple stopover short-haul itinerary on AA through partner JAL. The value on Marriott itself is often better & more difficult to obtain through other means.).
C. % by transfer partner: the highest recently recorded promo transfer from a partner in the past year since input
