When was the last time you got something for nothing? Well, if you are an American Express cardholder and enrolled in their Membership Rewards Program, chances are, you know what I’m talking about.
Most people I know tend to use their Membership Rewards for travel. A free plane ticket or hotel stay is amazing, but I prefer to use mine for something else — shopping! And for someone who loves to shop, every time I use my American Express card to pay for something, I’m earning more points to be used for, you guessed it, shopping! See how that works?
So what have I used my Membership Rewards for? Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve redeemed them for everything from a flat screen TV to a Marc Jacobs bag? Redeeming is super easy at membershiprewards.com and points never expire.
But more than just allowing me to buy “stuff”, Membership Rewards are like a social currency that opens up a world of possibilities to help connect with others. In addition to enjoying a chic new handbag, I can give back to over a million worthy charities, and use my points to treat my best friend to dinner, my husband to a movie or show, or my kids to a baseball game. That’s a whole lot of something for nothing — the possibilities are endless.
