There are a couple of new promotion between American Express and Walmart for US card members enrolled in the Membership Rewards program.

Earn 3 Membership Reward Points

  • Shop and visit (accessible via desktop, mobile web and mobile app)
  • Earn two additional Membership Rewards points per dollar spent (giving you a total of 3 points)
  • Use Amex Express Checkout
  • Promo is from July 30 to Aug 30

How do you get 4 Membership Rewards Points per dollar?

Those who have the American Express Business Plus could get 4 MR points per dollar. The Blue card already gets 2 MRs with no category restrictions, and with this promo, it will earn two additional Membership Rewards Points = a total 4 MR points per dollar. All other Amex MR cards will earn 3x.

You can find a welcome offer for 10,000 Membership Rewards on the Blue Business card here

What else is going on? You can now begin using your American Express Membership Rewards Points as a form of payment. I’ve seen this done with Amazon. Now, is giving this opportunity to pay using MR points.

Amex outlined how the steps as to how this will work:

  • Membership Rewards® Pay with Points

    • Enter the dollar amount you wish to apply to your order

    • Select “place my order” to complete purchase

    • Within 2-4 business days, a credit for the dollar amount used in points will appear on the American Express statement
