What do American Express (Amex) points get you?

07 Mar 2023 By PAYCEC

The simplest method is to use the prequalified tool on the American Express website and check directly for any increased offers. Alternatively, you could use the CardMatch tool to easily view all of your credit card offers (from the banks affiliated with the CardMatch tool). You might also consider attempting a targeted personal recommendation from a friend or relative.

American Express (AMEX) points can be redeemed for a variety of rewards, including

  • Travel: AMEX points can be used to book flights, hotels, and car rentals through the AMEX travel portal or transferred to airline and hotel loyalty programs.
  • Cashback: AMEX points can be redeemed for statement credits or deposited into a linked bank account as cashback.
  • Merchandise: AMEX points can be used to purchase products from the AMEX online store, including electronics, home goods, and clothing.
  • Gift cards: AMEX points can be redeemed for gift cards from a variety of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Starbucks.
  • Experiences: AMEX points can be used to purchase exclusive experiences, such as concert tickets, sporting events, and travel packages.

The value of AMEX points varies depending on how they are redeemed. Typically, using points for travel or transferring them to loyalty programs offers the best value, while using them for merchandise or cashback offers lower value.

How to Spend 75,000 Membership Rewards

Five round-trip economy tickets to Mexico using British Airways Avios

Mexico, which has no visa to apply for and no basketball to pass, is popular for numerous easy-to-go holiday destinations using British Airways partners American Airlines and Alaska Airlines.

British Airways Avios is a distance-based program. Take advantage of this by finding a route from San Diego to Puerto Vallarta, Dallas/Fort Worth to Cabo San Lucas, or from Charlotte to Cancun. Traveling less than 1,151 miles requires only 7,500 Avios one way. A balance of 75,000 Membership Rewards points is sufficient to cover the cost of a return ticket for a family of five.

Two premium economy round-trip tickets to London using Virgin Atlantic

If you have ever traveled by plane from the east coast to London, you will probably concur that premium economy is the ideal class to fly in. Even though the flight is only about six hours long, standard coach seats start to feel crowded, and upgrading to business class seems like a waste of money.

Virgin Atlantic offers premium economy travel to the UK from New York, Boston, and Washington, DC, for 35,000 points per person. Given that more than half of the year has standard dates, there are plenty of opportunities to reserve a cozy seat at a competitive price.

One Round-Trip Ticket to Europe on Iberia Airlines—in Business Class

Iberia provides one of the best deals for business-class travel to Europe. You can book a one-way business class flight for 34,000 Iberia Plus Avios on routes up to 4,000 miles (such as New York to Madrid). Unlike other European flight awards, the required taxes and fees are reasonable, which makes this redemption stand out.

Iberia is also a distance-based award, so making more connections will cost you more points. Peak times (typically the summer and winter holidays) are also more expensive. It is still a fantastic way to travel to Europe, though. If Madrid is not your final destination, you can continue to cities like Porto or Seville because connections within Europe begin at 4,500 Avios.

Three round-trip tickets to Canada using Aeroplan miles

The new AeroPlan is worth a solid redemption, such as traveling 501 to 1,500 miles within North America at 10,000 miles per way (about 25% cheaper than other programs).

Choose the Orlando-Montreal route to pursue French Canadian culture or plan a scenic adventure in the Canadian Rockies from Denver to Edmonton. These and dozens of other flights are eligible for awards at this price range. Three round-trip tickets require only 60,000 miles to switch from Membership Rewards to Aeroplan.
