When I was younger, I owned a ton of credit cards, opening up an account every time it was offered to me and particularly if there was some incentive. As I got older, I realized that owning that many credit cards means I don’t use any of them enough to actually reap those rewards, so I scaled back and now currently own less than five.
We were are strategic about the credit cards we use, and while it’s important that they are widely accepted, we also like to glean some incentives for our purchases. And that is why one of the main credit cards we use is an American Express Card. It is universally accepted, and with the Membership Rewards Program, we can earn points towards some amazing rewards including electronics, appliances, toys, fashion & accessory items and more.
Here is how it works:
2. Begin redeeming your points for travel, shopping, dining, and entertainment via the website. You’ll find some great ideas for the holidays via their online catalog.
New this season, American Express introduced Mobile Gift Cards so that you can redeem your membership rewards at your favorite retailers including Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, Pottery Barn West Elm, William-Sonoma, and more. Simply purchase gift cards and then pay with your smartphone or online. This is brilliant because while you are shopping, you can redeem, which will save you time!
How do you earn points?
Simply shop as you normally would using your American Express card. You’ll earn one point for every dollar spent and one extra point on each dollar spent towards travel purchases.
