Maximise  your Points

Maximise  your Points

Maximising your American Express membership to earn more Membership Rewards points on everyday purchases makes a lot of sense. Depending on the Card you hold, Card Members can earn up to 3 points for every dollar spent at major supermarkets and selected restaurants, 2 points per dollar spent on travel and at major petrol stations and 1 point per $1 spent practically everywhere else. You'll even earn 0.5 points per $1 spent on utilities, insurance, telecommunications and government bodies.

The best thing is, there's no limit to the number of points you can earn on American Express Credit Cards, and they won't expire as long as your account is in good standing. When you consider the points' earning potential, it makes a lot of sense to use your American Express Card every time you spend.
