American Express Points Worth by Redemption Method
Tips for Maximizing the Value of American Express Points
Redeem Points for Travel.
American Express points are worth the most when redeemed for travel.
Redeem American Express points regularly.
American Express points do not expire due to account inactivity, but stockpiling points does put you at risk of rewards devaluation. Plus, you won't get to enjoy the fruits of your spending if you don't redeem.
Keep your account in good standing.
If American Express closes your account because of a failure to pay the bill or fraudulent activity, you'll lose any unredeemed points you have saved. And if you pay late, you might have to pay a fee to get back the points from that billing period.
Redeem before closing your account.
Any points you don't redeem before closing your account will be lost, unless you keep another American Express credit card account open.
