Points At Your Fingertips: New Smartphone Feature, Use Points For Charges, Gives Eligible American Express® Card Members The Power To Use Membership Rewards® Points For Everyday Purchases

Today American Express launched a new Use Points for Charges feature available in the American Express mobile app that gives eligible Card Members the option to easily and conveniently redeem Membership Rewards® points for practically any purchase, from gas and groceries to clothing and manicures, all on their smartphones.

Unlike rewards programs that only allow customers to redeem from a pre-selected list of options, Card Members now have the power to design their own rewards program and treat themselves by redeeming points for almost any purchase with an eligible American Express Card.

“We’re committed to making Membership mobile, recognizing a future where decisions on what, where, and how to buy increasingly happen through mobile devices,” said David Yoo, SVP Mobile Products and Services, American Express. “We want to be where our Card Members are so that they can get the most out of Membership every day, and we can do that by connecting our Card products to the mobile devices our Card Members rely on most.”

How it works:
  • Download or upgrade the free iOS or Android American Express mobile app
  • Make an eligible purchase over $1.00 using your eligible Card enrolled in the Membership Rewards program
  • Open the mobile app and select Use Points for that particular charge once it hits your statement
  • A credit in the amount of the charge is applied to your account

*Terms apply; see below.

“Our Card Members want flexibility, choice and the opportunity to use the rewards they earn for the things they need and want most,” said Yoo. “While many of our Card Members enjoy using points for big rewards like travel, Use Points for Charges now makes rewards more accessible for those who want to use Membership Rewards points for their everyday purchases.”

Use Points for Charges is the latest in a series of recent mobile offerings that puts American Express Membership right in your hand on smartphone devices. Card Members can already check their account balance, make payments, browse rewards options, and load special offers to their Card from their phones.

About the Membership Rewards Program

The Membership Rewards program from American Express offers more than a million rewards from more than 500 brands. The program allows Card Members to earn one point for virtually every dollar charged on eligible, enrolled American Express Cards, with many opportunities to earn points faster. Membership Rewards points are redeemable in a wide selection of reward categories. Points have no expiration date, and there is no limit on the number of points a Card Member can earn. For more information about the Membership Rewards program, visit: membershiprewards.com or call 1-800-AXP-EARN (297-3276).

Using Points for Your Charges is only available to Basic Consumer and OPEN Card Members enrolled in the U.S. Membership Rewards® program. Authorized agents, authorized account managers, Additional Card Members and Authorized Additional Card Members are not eligible. All Linked Card accounts must be in good standing. A minimum of 1,000 Membership Rewards points in your program account is required and you may use Membership Rewards points only toward the entire amount of an eligible charge. American Express will present the eligible charges you can use points towards, and we may change which charges are eligible at any time without notice. American Express is under no obligation to make charges available for redemption using Membership Rewards points. For each transaction, points will be debited immediately from your Membership Rewards program account and a credit will be issued to your Linked Card account for the corresponding dollar amount within 48 hours. Credits processed after the Card account’s statement closing date will appear in the following billing period. You are responsible for payment of the amount due on your Card account by the due date even after using this feature.
