Independence Day Special Promotion
To celebrate the Indian Independence Day on August 15, American Express is offering 15 Membership Rewards points on all cards which are offering the Reward Multiplier feature. This is a significant hike for the lower end American Express Cards for sure.
During this promotional period, Reward Multiplier offers of earning 5X Membership Rewards points on American Express Platinum Card, 3X Membership Rewards points on American Express Platinum Reserve Credit Card and American Express Platinum Travel Credit Card and 2X Membership Rewards points on other American Express Proprietary Cards will not be applicable. 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.
