Reaching 300,000 Membership Rewards points unlocks a world of possibilities. There is a huge amount of choice when it comes to using your points, so we pulled together a few ideas to inspire you. These may be just a sample of what's possible, but we hope they will help you put your points to good use, whether that’s a boost for your business, a gift for your customers, an experience for your family, or a treat for yourself.

Use your points to help seal a few deals by spending them on visits abroad to meet suppliers, business partners, or associates face-to-face. You could use your points for a team trip to Paris, Amsterdam, or Brussels. Book six return Business Premier tickets through Club Eurostar and you can fast-track your way onto any direct Eurostar service, ideal if you want to make a face-to-face impact on your clients, or simply want to enjoy a celebratory outing with colleagues.
Don’t let your next flight to Asia wear you out before you even begin. A balance of 300,000 points can be used for three Upper Class return tickets with Virgin Atlantic from London to Hong Kong. Arrive relaxed and refreshed and match the energy of the city with some of your own.
Alternatively, you could thank your most valued customers with an unexpected gift. By turning 300,000 points into a £1,500 Harrods gift card, you could get the Knightsbridge store to deliver a luxurious St James food and beverage hamper to three of your business partners in the Far or the Middle East.
Points can also be used for some treats within your business. Why not grab yourself a top-of-the-range Delonghi Coffee Machine from Amazon by redeeming 300,000 points to get £1,350 worth of spend? Let your colleagues enjoy quality drinks while at work, or welcome visitors with a freshly brewed coffee.
Get more done at work by using your points to buy an Apple iMac, or make your travel time more productive with a Microsoft Surface Pro 7 from Currys PC World - 300,000 points are worth £1,500.
Keep yourself and your family entertained by covering the cost of a Netflix Premium and Spotify Premium subscriptions for more than two years with your points. You’ll even have enough to subscribe to a regular delivery from Naked Wines too.
If you’d rather get off the sofa, tick off some bucket list experiences by using your points for a £1,500 buyagift.co.uk gift card. Book a 30-minute helicopter tour of London for four, hike up Ben Nevis in a challenging weekend with friends, and test your driving skills in an exhilarating Extreme Rally and Supercar Driving experience for one – you’ll be able to dine out on these stories for years.
When it comes to air miles, a balance of 300,000 points opens up a world of destinations, from the beaches of the Seychelles to the buzz of San Francisco. Transfer your points to Avios to enjoy two return business class flights to some of British Airways most coveted US destinations. For your next trip, consider a holiday to Denver, Las Vegas, or San Francisco.
Or why not head to Austin to catch up with the latest in technology trends? While you’re there, stay well-entertained and well-fed by checking out Austin’s vibrant music and street food scene and enjoy the offbeat culture of America’s fastest-growing city.
Want to stay stateside? Convert your 300,000 points into a stylish five-night stay in Miami at the W South Beach hotel through the Marriott Bonvoy partner programme. Enjoy the best Miami has to offer – a spot of people watching, fabulous Art Deco architecture, and high-end shopping – and that’s all before you head to the beach.
Or book a room in the centre of downtown during a five night stay in the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District – by exchanging your Membership Rewards points to a partner hotel’s Radisson Rewards.
Alternatively, use your Membership Rewards to hit the road. A balance of 300,000 points gives you £1,500 of Hertz vouchers, enough to let your hair down on a 10-day trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco in a BMW convertible or take it in turns with friends to get behind the wheel of a BMW 740 on a 21-day road trip from Los Angeles.
These are just some of the ways you can use your Membership Rewards points. If you want to discover even more things you can do with American Express rewards, take a look at our infographic.
