In an industry first, American Express today announced the launch of a new benefit that allows Membership Rewards points to be used for purchases at Amazon.com. Cardmembers enrolled in the Membership Rewards program can use points to pay for all or part of their Amazon.com purchases.

"Starting today, Cardmembers can use the billions of points they have accrued toward millions of items at Amazon.com," said Lynne Biggar, senior vice president and general manager, Membership Rewards, American Express. "This is a major step forward in the evolution of the Membership Rewards program, which began as a travel-focused program and has since expanded to include dining, entertainment, retail and many more redemption options. Through the launch of this new benefit, we are now giving Cardmembers the added choice and flexibility to directly use rewards points to purchase anything from Kindles and books to electronics and sporting goods."

A New Way to Pay

American Express Cardmembers enrolled in the Membership Rewards program will be able to use points toward millions of items on Amazon.com (www.amazon.com) across categories such as Books; Kindle; Movies, Music & Games; Computers & Office; Electronics; Home, Garden, & Pets; Grocery, Health & Beauty; Toys, Kids & Baby; Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry; Sports & Outdoors; Tools & Home Improvement; and Auto & Industrial. Cardmembers also continue to have the option to use points for rewards from more than 500 brands in the Membership Rewards program across popular categories, including Travel, Dining and Entertainment, Retail, and Charities.

"It's exciting to work with American Express to offer their Cardmembers our vast selection of products and fast delivery through the launch of this new benefit," said Matt Swann, vice president and general manager of Global Payments, Amazon.com. "Cardmembers will find using points on Amazon.com an easy and convenient way to shop at Amazon.com."
