Beginning this week, American Specific India has extra choices for us to redeem Amex membership reward factors that would get us larger level worth than we used to get pleasure from earlier than, higher than Gold assortment or Marriott Bonvoy redemptions for that matter.
We will now redeem MR factors for curated luxurious experiences underneath numerous 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 every part you’ll want to 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 based mostly.
I did a fast take a look at the t&c, most are superb and we are able to actually anticipate Amex grade of service and help as properly. Word 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 many others upfront as fast information as a substitute 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 definitely 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 needed to try this for someday and was looking for that on Accor Actions however glad to see right here.
Maybe they might think about including the Dubai sky-dive expertise to the listing 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 larger.
However on condition that postcard accommodations are often overpriced, I wouldn’t recommend you to do the common math and begin assuming that we’re getting a lot larger level worth, as a result of that’s the perceived worth and never the actual market worth.
Anyway, it nonetheless makes quite a lot of distinction with present Amex requirements the place the purpose worth is simply 50ps or so.
Appears 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 serious occasion for Amex cardholders as we are able to 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 may not 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 should you had been resisting to go for the profitable improve supply of 135K AmEx MR factors on Amex Platinum Cost Card, now could be the right 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 accommodations not as soon as however twice with the welcome profit.
Not solely Amex Plat Cost, even Amex Platinum Journey Card may also help 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 beneath.
