Out of the four most popular transferable currencies in the points and miles industry, Membership Rewards might just be the most powerful.

Why You Should Turn off Pay Over Time and an Easy Way To Earn 20,000 Membership Rewards

American Express offers two different types of card - regular credit cards we are all very familiar with and the no pre-set spending limit cards.

Amazon Prime Day + Additional $100 Off by Applying 1 Point

Right now you can get 20% off your purchase of a product (or products) sold and shipped by Amazon, up to a $100 discount, when you apply at least one Membership Reward point to payment.

This is especially pertinent as Amazon Prime Day just kicked off: 36 hours of massive sales for Amazon Prime members. Prime Day started at 12 pm PT today. Don't have a Prime membership but want to take advantage of the sales? Sign up for a free trial.

25% Transfer Bonus: Membership Rewards to Flying Blue

Today through June 15, 2018, you can transfer your Membership Reward points--the points earned by cards like the Amex Platinum, Business Gold Rewards, and the Blue Business Plus--to Flying Blue and earn a 25% bonus. This means 24,000 Membership Rewards = 30,000 Flying Blue miles, which is enough for a roundtrip between the mainland US and Hawaii in Delta economy, at least if booked before June 1.

Easy Extra 2 Membership Rewards Per Dollar Spent (Up to 5k)

Until May 17, 2018, using your Membership Reward earning Amex card to pay for specific online purchases through Amex Express Checkout will you earn 2 bonus Membership Rewards per dollar spent (on top of whatever category bonus your card may also earn for the card, or on top of the at least one point you'd earn for non-bonused spend).
