From flights and hotel rooms, to gift cards, concert tickets and so much more, turn Rewards points into rewards you love.
What is the American Express Membership Rewards Programme?
Our Membership Rewards loyalty programme rewards Card Members for using their American Express® Card. The more you use your Card, the more Membership Rewards points you can earn. You can then redeem points for travel, gift cards, entertainment experiences and much more.
How can you earn points faster?
Keep an eye out for a Rewards Card that earns points faster, such as the American Express Platinum Edge Credit Card which earns you 3 points per dollar spent at major supermarkets1. It’s just one of the ways you can maximise points and make your Rewards Credit Card work harder for you.
More ways to earn points
Use your Credit Card to pay for regular items like bills, groceries, petrol, your mobile, dining out or your gym membership.
Add a Supplementary Card Member and all points earned will be credited to your Account.
Where can you use Membership Rewards points?
There are so many ways you can use Membership Rewards points. Redeem points for one-off experiences, travel, gift cards and more of the things you love.
More ways to use points
Redeem points for travel with any one of our travel partners.
You can transfer Membership Rewards points to a wide range of premium Airline and Hotel Reward Partner Programmes, on both The American Express Platinum Card and The American Express Platinum Edge Credit Card.
