Want to share your fre­quent-flier miles with a friend or a fam­ily mem­ber? It might cost you. Here are the pool­ing poli­cies at some of the big­gest U.S. air­lines. Some might have min­i­mum or max­i­mum trans­fer amounts per trans­ac­tion or per year. Taxes could also be an added cost.

Alaska Air­lines: Cus­tomers can trans­fer miles for $10 per 1,000 miles, plus a $25 fee per trans­ac­tion. Amer­i­can Air­lines: Cus­tomers can trans­fer miles for $12.50 per 1,000 miles, plus a $15 fee per trans­ac­tion.

Hawai­ian Air­lines: The car­rier’s Share Miles pro­gram lets peo­ple trans­fer miles free, as long as the miles go to some­one who has a Hawai­ian co-branded credit or debit card and is the pri­mary card­holder.
