This article is part of the American Express UK Employee series, where internal American Express staff have put pen to paper and written about some of our products and services and how they can support UK businesses.
Here at American Express, we want to help you get the most from your money. No two businesses are the same and that’s why we offer a rewards programme like nobody else. Our Membership Rewards®1 programme is designed with the individual in mind; a programme which offers flexibility, and the options to help you use your points in a way that suits you best.
In need of some new office furniture, which then ends up being an additional cost that might not have been factored into this month’s budget? Worry not, your Membership Rewards points have got you covered. Instead of spending your company’s profit, use your points! Select and Redeem is your flexible currency: a way to invest without feeling like you’ve spent any money. Purchase the new furniture using your American Express® Business Card and offset the transaction using your points via the Select and Redeem redemption found on your Online Services Account.
Or, perhaps you want to reward your team? Use your points to treat them to Gift Cards as a thank you for their hard work. Visit the membershiprewards.co.uk website and pick from a wide selection of retailers. You could even treat them to the first round of drinks after work on a Friday, or a coffee run to celebrate a great pitch. Pay using your Business Card and you can offset those transactions too.
Our Donate with Points charity redemption gives you the opportunity to donate to a good cause. Use your points to help The Global Fund, a charity providing medication to treat tuberculosis. Select the amount of points you’d like to donate, we’ll then deduct them from your account and convert them into cash which will be sent directly to The Global Fund.
These are just some of the redemptions available to you as part of your Cardmembership. Visit membershiprewards.co.uk to see the full selection.
Your business spend today, helps you be your future friend tomorrow.
