Enrol in Membership Rewards1 and you'll earn Membership Rewards points whenever you spend on your Card. You can then take your pick from a fantastic range of rewards.
Unlike many other rewards programmes, Membership Rewards points do not expire provided your Account remains in good standing. So you can accumulate points and redeem them as and when you're ready.
Earning more points doesn't have to mean spending more money. Just use your Card for more of your everyday purchases, and get to the rewards you want quicker.
- Use your Card in the same way as you would cash or an EFTPOS card. You'll earn Membership Rewards points while using your Card for everyday purchases such as groceries, petrol and eating out.
- Set up your Card Account to pay your monthly household bills. This way the bill is always paid and you earn Membership Rewards points.
- Give family members a Supplementary Card so they can also enjoy the benefits of Card membership while you earn points on all their purchases.
- If you have more than one eligible American Express Card Account these will be linked into one Membership Rewards Account.
With Membership Rewards you can redeem points for everything from merchandise and vouchers to travel and experience rewards. Redeeming points for RapidRewards®, booking travel, or transferring points to an airline2 or hotel partner programme is easy - see below for more details.
Redeem from our premium range of lifestyle rewards including vouchers, cases of wine, electronics, accommodation and much more.
Plus, if you are a longstanding Cardmember you can take advantage of another privilege: 'Member Since' Rewards. These are a selection of RapidRewards available to longstanding Cardmembers at a discounted points level.
