Beginning this week, American Specific India has extra choices for us to redeem Amex membership reward factors that would get us increased level worth than we used to take pleasure in earlier than, higher than Gold assortment or Marriott Bonvoy redemptions for that matter.
We will now redeem MR factors for curated luxurious experiences underneath varied classes like keep(bundle)/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 all the things you must know together with pattern choices to select from,
Whereas above provides a tough thought of what to anticipate, right here’s the detailed information of all choices together with t&c. It seems to be just like the redemptions are easy, voucher primarily based.
I did a fast have a look at the t&c, most are tremendous and we will definitely count on Amex grade of service and help as properly. Notice 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 information as an alternative of constructing us dig the t&c pdf written in small letters to search out the smae.
Which is finest?
I really feel postcard redemptions are good indisputably and I’m positive 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 might take into account 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 worth of 1 INR per 1 MR level and even increased.
However provided that postcard accommodations are normally overpriced, I wouldn’t counsel you to do the common math and begin assuming that we’re getting a lot increased level worth, as a result of that’s the perceived worth and never the actual market worth.
Anyway, it nonetheless makes loads of distinction with present Amex requirements the place the purpose worth is simply 50ps or so.
Appears to be like like American Specific began off 2024 with a willpower to carry again its identify and fame within the business 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 pleased 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 for those who had been resisting to go for the profitable improve provide of 135K AmEx MR factors on Amex Platinum Cost Card, now’s the proper time to seize one since you not solely get all of the shiny steel card advantages but additionally have an choice to redeem the factors for an exhilarating drive in an Italian sports activities automobile (or) benefit from the 2 evening keep at postcard accommodations not as soon as however twice with the welcome profit.
Not solely Amex Plat Cost, even Amex Platinum Journey Card can assist with these redemptions, because of 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 under.
