You get the most Amex EveryDay points value when you redeem for travel through the American Express website. Each Amex EveryDay point is worth a penny that way. On the other hand, if you redeem for merchandise through the American Express online mall, you’ll only get half a cent per point.
Here’s how to get more Amex EveryDaypoints value:
Uber and NYC taxis: 1 cent
Gift cards: Up to 1 cent
Amex travel: Up to 1 cent – Booking flights through the Amex travel website will get you the most value. The travel portal lets you book cruises, and hotels too. But all the options besides flights offer 0.5 cents or 0.7 cents a point.
Charitable donation: Up to 1 cent
Transfer points: up to 1+ cent(s)– Amex gives you the option of transferring your Amex EveryDay points to the loyalty programs of participating airlines and hotels. Each Amex EveryDay point is worth one airline mile, but those miles are worth differing dollar amounts.
Amex retail partners: Up to0.7 cents– You can pay with points at Seamless, Grubhub, Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, and other merchants when you use your Amex Everyday Card at checkout.
Statement credit: 0.6 cents
Tickets to Events: 0.5 cents
To get the most Amex EveryDay points value, you’ll want to steer clear of redemption options like statement credits and sports tickets. Luckily, there are a few different high value methods, so you can be flexible. And if you find the right flight through a partner airline, you won’t even be limited to the Amex travel portal.
It's about 1 cent per point. What matters is what you use'em for, that's what will change their actual value.
