Beginning this week, American Specific India has extra choices for us to redeem Amex membership reward factors that would get us greater level worth than we used to take pleasure in earlier than, higher than Gold assortment or Marriott Bonvoy redemptions for that matter.
We are able to now redeem MR factors for curated luxurious experiences beneath numerous classes like keep(package deal)/eating/sports activities. These particular redemption choices are made in partnership with the luxurious tour company Dreamsetgo.
Redemptions are already dwell on Amex membership rewards portal. Right here’s every part it’s good to know together with pattern choices to select from,
Whereas above offers a tough thought of what to anticipate, right here’s the detailed data of all choices together with t&c. It appears just like the redemptions are easy, voucher primarily based.
I did a fast take a look at the t&c, most are fantastic and we will actually count on Amex grade of service and help as effectively. Observe that some redemptions are seasonal.
I want Amex makes it less complicated to have a fast look by mentioning # of individuals it’s meant for, location, and so on upfront as fast data as an alternative of constructing us dig the t&c pdf written in small letters to search out the smae.
Which is greatest?
I really feel postcard redemptions are good for sure and I’m certain that’s what most would go for, esp the Goa one amongst others.
And the Abu Dhabi sports activities expertise is an excellent one too. Infact I wished to do this for someday and was trying to find that on Accor Actions however glad to see right here.
Maybe they may contemplate including the Dubai sky-dive expertise to the record someday in future.
What’s the worth?
If we go together with the listed income charges, for instance with postcard resort stays, then we might get a price of 1 INR per 1 MR level and even greater.
However provided that postcard lodges are normally overpriced, I wouldn’t counsel you to do the common math and begin assuming that we’re getting a lot greater level worth, as a result of that’s the perceived worth and never the true market worth.
Anyway, it nonetheless makes lots of distinction with present Amex requirements the place the purpose worth is just 50ps or so.
Appears to be like like American Specific began off 2024 with a dedication to deliver again its title and fame within the trade after being silent for someday.
I see this as a significant occasion for Amex cardholders as we will now get 2X worth from Amex factors (1 INR, up from 0.50 INR per level). Furthermore, as these are curated experiences over typical stays, this won’t solely give higher worth but additionally make cardmembers completely satisfied of holding Amex. Nice work!
Additionally, this has come on the proper time as anyway Marriott Bonvoy level worth is getting worser each passing month, now even in India.
So when you had been resisting to go for the profitable improve provide of 135K AmEx MR factors on Amex Platinum Cost Card, now could be the proper time to seize one since you not solely get all of the shiny metallic card advantages but additionally have an choice to redeem the factors for an exhilarating drive in an Italian sports activities automotive (or) benefit from the 2 night time keep at postcard lodges not as soon as however twice with the welcome profit.
Not solely Amex Plat Cost, even Amex Platinum Journey Card will help with these redemptions, due to the milestone advantages on the cardboard.
Which among the many above new redemption choices sounds higher to you? Be happy to share within the feedback beneath.
