Why wait? Get the rewards you want faster.

With your Platinum Edge Credit Card, you know that every dollar you spend on the Card – whether you're shopping halfway across the world or dining out closer to home – will help you earn the rewards of your choice.

We hope you enjoy earning Membership Rewards1 points because you're about to earn lots of them – 3 points for every dollar spent at major supermarkets, 2 points for every dollar spent at major petrol stations and 1 point for every dollar spent on all other purchases. When you're ready to redeem points you can choose from hundreds of merchandise and Gift Card or voucher2 options or you can transfer the points you earn to seven different airline partner programmes3. You can even redeem points for a credit on your Card4. Plus, Membership Rewards points won't expire as long as your Card Account remains current.

As a Platinum Edge Card member, you're automatically enrolled in the Membership Rewards programme. Not only can you redeem points for merchandise and Gift Cards or vouchers2, you can also transfer Membership Rewards points to our seven airline rewards partners3 or redeem points for travel with American Express Travel, Harvey World Travel, or online with Webjet5. Any travel that a travel agent can book, you can pay for with Membership Rewards points.
