Redeeming Rewards & Cash Value

Membership Rewards Points can be redeemed towards travel, gift cards, card charges, and at checkout with select retailers. All of these redemptions give you the same value, but you can typically obtain a higher value when transferring points to AMEX's airline and hotel partners.

Transfer Partners

Membership Rewards Points can be transferred to up to 12 different airline and hotel partners. This gives you alternative ways to build airline miles and hotel rewards points across several leading programs.
