20 years ago American Express launched their Membership Rewards program. They were the first to offer points to their members that could be redeemed for rewards.
My husband has carried an American Express card since the mid 80s, yet we didn’t sign up for the rewards program.
I shudder to think how many points we have missed in those 20 years!
Today the AmEx Membership Rewards program is bigger and better than ever. The points can be redeemed for anything from Farmville and Amazon purchases to plane flights and hotel stays.
I have been tasked with the grueling chore of designing a weekend getaway from Dallas using Membership Rewards points.
I know! I know!
It is pure torture!
