With the American Express Membership Rewards Program you earn one point for every dollar you spend. There is no limit to the number of points you can earn and you won’t lose them because they will not expire. SO if you’re saving points to fly, you don’t have to buy magazine subscriptions like I usually do with my airlines flyer miles I get just for flying. Once you’ve racked up the points then you can redeem them quite easily, that is you can make up your mind. I have quite a bit of trouble picking out certain things. I mean you can use them for retail purchases and access to dining and entertainment events. You can use them to book travel or transfer points to frequent flyer and guest programs. And you can use points toward Gift Cards and Certificates. I liked how I broke up the 25,000 American Express Membership Rewards Program Points into categories so I’m going to give you ideas from different categories again. And starting with my favorite category, let’s take a peak at the 50,000 points range.
