Why Pay For Holiday Gifts When You Can Cash In Your #PointsForPresents

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and if you have an American Express Card it just got a whole lot more jolly! Thanks to #PointsForPresents, you can shop ’til you drop this season.

Here’s the deal: When Amex cardmembers use their card throughout the year, they earn points on their spending. As you accumulate points, you can cash them in on ShopAmex® for designer accessories, travel, wine, beauty products, basically anything. And yes, this holiday season, that includes gifts!

I know all about Amex points since I have a card myself. Last year I used my points at Ticketmaster and purchased tix to The Christmas Spectacular at Rockefeller Center in New York City. I treated my parents and son to the show and I’ll never forget the look on my little boy’s face (it was a total surprise!) He lit up that theater when the lights dimmed and the show started. It was a wonderful feeling to share this moment with his grandparents, too!

It was even more glorious when I hit the spa for a much needed pre-holiday massage and facial. I believe a hard-working gal like myself (and all of you lovelies) deserve  a little self-gifting. Not a little—a lot. Indulge!

This year I’m eyeing up using my points on a new bike for my son, to roll under the Christmas tree from, you know, Santa.


As for me? Perhaps a pair of designer ballet flats.


ShopAmex® also has a great wine department and with all the holiday parties rounding the corner, I might as well buy a couple of bottles (and maybe one … or two for me).


I was selected by American Express as to help educate consumers about how to use Membership Rewards points. As such I was paid for my services, but all gift choices selected and opinions about the gifts and American Express are my own.
