Tag: American Express Membership Rewards

With hundreds of posts about American Express Membership Rewards, it can be hard to know where to begin! This Complete Guide offers a good summary of information. The guide says…

In my opinion, transferable points programs, are the most valuable points to accumulate.  These points can often be used at better than 1 cent per point value to book travel.  Even better, points can be strategically transferred to airline and hotel programs when valuable awards are available.  If you’re at all interested in free travel or luxury travel with points & miles, then you need to understand the basics of each of these programs, including Amex Membership Rewards.

If you’d like to dive deeper, the posts below investigate the nuances of earning, managing, and transferring these Membership Rewards points more deeply.
