American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card India offers

I have extensively written about this credit card before and my verdict is that is a solid card. You would get 1 Membership Rewards point for every INR 50 spent coming into your account. What makes this card worth considering is that you get 1,000 bonus Membership Rewards points when you use your card for at least four swipes of a minimum of INR 1000 in a month. That means you can earn up to 12,000 bonus Membership Rewards points in a year, just for spending 48,000 rupees.

  1. Ajay there is a recommendation I would like to make that if you feel has substance be forwarded to Amex Team “You seem to have a great relationship with them”.

    I am a HNI and use HDFC Infinia and Indusind Pinnacle with overall spending of around 50-60lac per year. My colleague has Amex Platinum Charge Card which is excellent to use in America and UK but is worst than both Infinia and Pinnacle for Indian usage. A fact which was highlighted in our Goa trip where the Amex was rejected half of the places whereas Indusind Pinnacle stopped working half way in Russia because to high usage “Even after alerting my RM about the trip beforehand”.

    My recommendation is to give away American express Gold charge card LTF for people with an ITR higher than 20-25lac. Yes I know its similar to the MRCC but being a charge card its better suited for a person who has a higher spending and better for international spending “Europe”.

    Let me know what you think about it.

  2. Hi,
    based on the above, I tried to enroll by using the link in the blog.

    After furnishing all the details received a message: you have your eligibility and can again check after 90 days…

    What does this means? same happened when applied in my wife’s name.
