Cardmember will instead get a higher accelerated earn of 15 Membership Rewards Points on every spend of ₹100.


This is a pretty lucrative offer if you believe in the power of Membership Rewards points as I do. For cardmembers of the American Express Gold Charge Card, American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card and other such cards, it benefits them even more given instead of 4 points/INR 100 they will now earn 15 points/INR 100 spent. So go on and shop over Independence day and make the most of this promotion.
