For example, if you buy an outgoing wire in the amount of EURO 10,000, and if we charge you USD 11,000 for those EUROS, then we will award 367 Membership Rewards points (11,000 divided by 30 = 367 points). This exchange rate is for illustration purposes only.
In order to benefit from this offer, your business must first designate an existing American Express Card that is enrolled in the Membership Rewards program to which we will award the Membership Rewards points. Once we award points to the Cardmember’s Membership Rewards program, the Cardmember decides how to redeem those points, not you. If you designate an American Express Card that is enrolled in the Corporate Membership Rewards program, then the Corporate Card client decides how to redeem those points, not you.
Other terms and conditions apply. See the Membership Rewards enrollment form or ask your FX International Payments Representative for more information.
