Being rewarded has never

felt so sweet

Revealed. The best ways to earn more Membership Rewards Express points.

It’s easy to earn more points with the Express Rewards Credit Card. Click on the tabs below to find out how to earn more points and where you can redeem them.

How to earn more points

It’s as easy as 3, 2, 1

Picked up or delivered, there’s no getting out of the weekly shop. The difference is, you now get an impressive 3 points for every £1 you spend at major supermarkets up to 1,000 points a month. Shop at major department stores and you get 2 points for every £1 you spend. And you even earn 1 point for virtually every £1 spent using your Card everywhere else.1

You don’t have to spend any more than you did before. Just use your Card for the things you buy already. So the more you put on your Card instead of other ways of paying, the more points you’ll earn.

Remember, you need to earn just 5,000 points to be eligible to redeem your points for vouchers at all your favourite retailers.

To learn about more places where your Card is welcomed, visit the American Express Network.

More Cards mean more points

Add an extra Card for a family member or someone close to you. It’s simple, free and you’ll get points for everything they buy too. Remember, they must also be UK residents aged 18 or over.

This is one of the fastest ways to boost the amount of points you earn. So when it comes to treating yourself, you’ll really notice the difference.

To apply for a Supplementary Card, simply call Customer Services. In the UK the number is 0800 917 8047 and from outside the UK it’s +44 1273 696 333.

Boost your points balance

Bills are another great way to maximise your points. Simply pay your bills every month or quarter with your Express Rewards Credit Card. That way you’ll earn more points on all your outgoings. Once again, it’s not a case of spending more. It just makes sense to get rewarded for the things you pay for already.

The minimum amount you need to pay us each month will be 10% of the total amount owing or £50, whichever is more. No points are payable on cash withdrawals, interest, fees, American Express Travellers Cheques, foreign exchange, balance transfers, amounts subsequently re-credited to your account due to refunds, or expenditure in any one month exceeding the amount of your Credit Limit.
