American Express Luxury Experiences

American Express Membership Reward points have always been quite versatile when it comes to redemptions. From the Gold Collection to multiple transfer partners, it has always been possible to get great value out of them. Starting today, we have many more exciting options. American Express has launched MR points redemptions for luxury experiences in various categories like adventure, stay and dining. The best part is some of these redemptions will give you a fantastic value for your MR points. Here is an overview of these new luxury experiences redemptions along with our picks of the lot.

Adventure Redemptions

Amex Luxury Experiences in Adventure

The niche Postcard Hotels are finally bookable with credit card points! We can now book a 2 night stay at the Postcard Gir Wildlife Sanctuary with complimentary breakfast with Amex MR points. The package also includes a private jeep safari in Gir Jungle or Dewalia Park. The per night price at this hotel starts at 30K. For 2 nights, it would be 60K and above. To redeem for this experience, we need to use 90K MR points giving us a value of 67 paise per MR point. Add in the jungle safari and you get an even better value per MR point.

Some more Postcard hotels and luxury stays are also available with the new redemptions. You can get a new experience on your next Goa trip with The Postcard Goa. Get a 2 night stay including complimentary breakfast for 65K MR points. The revenue rate for the Luxury room at The Postcard Goa starts at 19K. 65K MR points for a revenue stay worth Rs 38,000 will give you a MR point value of 58 paise each. Pretty good in our opinion!

Dining Redemptions

There are two options in the Dining category but unfortunately, none of them are in India. Hopefully, Amex adds some more options to this in the future.

Final Thoughts

The most exciting of these new redemption options is that of The Postcard Hotels. Credit card enthusiasts like us have long been waiting to see this option and this surely comes as good news! While the MR point value may not be great for some of these redemptions, it surely adds more options for American Express customers.

These new options are available under the MR points reward redemptions portal in ‘Experiences’ tab and will be issued as gift vouchers.
