Picked up or delivered, there’s no getting out of the weekly shop. The difference is that now you can get rewarded for those everyday purchases:

  • You get 3 Membership Rewards Express points for virtually every full £1 you spend at major supermarkets up to 1,000 points a month
  • 2 points for virtually every full £1 you spend at leading department stores.
  • 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 American Express Card for the things you already buy, and you’ll see your Membership Rewards Express points balance topping up.

Remember, you need to earn 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, complimentary and you’ll get Membership Rewards Express points for virtually everything they buy too. Remember, they must also be UK residents aged 18 or over. Supplementary Cards are subject to application and approval.

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.

Say hello to the quick and easy way for you to get delightful offers. Simply log in to your online Account, go to the ‘Offers’ tab and save the offers you like to your Card. There’s no vouchers to print and no codes to enter, all you have to do is spend the required amount on the saved Card and you’ll receive your reward back in the form of a statement credit.*
