American Express Rewards Can Be Used on

August 4, 2015         Written By Lynn Oldshue

American Express cardholders will now be able to use their membership rewards to make purchases on, and have their products delivered to their local store or directly to their door.

If you have an American Express credit card, you may use your points on the website during the checkout process. When prompted for your payment option, enter your American Express card information. There will be an option for you to review your Membership Rewards points and apply as many as you want to your Best Buy purchase. This could pay for some or all of the purchase, depending on the amount of points you choose to use.

After using the points at Best Buy online, card members will see their points balances adjust in 2-4 business days.

“We worked closely with Best Buy to integrate this seamless experience that further enhances the utility of our world-class Membership Rewards program in a powerful, new way,” Leslie Berland, executive vice president of Global Brand, Marketing & Digital Partnerships at American Express, said in a statement.

“We are excited to partner with American Express and allow Card Members the ability to convert their Membership Rewards points into the latest and greatest consumer electronics products and services,” remarked Mary Lou Kelley, president of the e-commerce sector at Best Buy.

The new rewards program launched last Thursday, and is now in effect for all eligible American Express cardholders.
