Does anyone know what the Amex Rewards Card Membership Programme is and what the benefits are if I take up the card?

I don’t have a pleasant story with all these cards that promise rewards and out of the world benefits so I want to be double sure this Amex Rewards Card is worth it and not just empty promises. Can I have a quick update about this card?

    I think this reward card is the real deal that delivers on its reward promises. You will have to sign up for the cards Membership Rewards Programme to first earn 1 Membership Rewards point for every $1 spent. In addition, you will receive 50% more bonus points on the first $5,000 you charge to your American Express Rewards Card at your Favourite five places. Just take your pick over a selection of 150 outlets which include supermarkets, petrol stations, fashion outlets, restaurants and electronic stores. I also like the opportunity they offer to earn 50% bonus points faster when one spends $5,000 on the Card in a calendar year on all your spend, every time, everywhere. And of course unlike other loyalty programmes, Membership Rewards points never expire.

    Points cannot be redeemed for cash

    American Express Rewards Card / American Express International

    Points cannot be redeemed for cash. The Membership Rewards programme lets you redeem points for a long list of money-saving vouchers, merchandise and even airline frequent flyer miles. But unfortunately you don't get an option to redeem for cash, so if you prefer flexible cash rewards, then maybe you should go for other cashback cards.

    Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

    Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia.

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

    The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

    The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.
