American Express® Corporate Cards

Corporate Membership Rewards® Program

The Corporate Membership Rewards program enables Companies to accumulate and consolidate rewards points. Under the program, points accumulate, without limits, in a central account. The Company decides which Cards to enrol and how to use the points. This allows you to:

  • Retain the Membership Rewards points even when an employee leaves the Company
  • Maintain control over the number of Cards and which employee(s) to enroll into the program
  • Have an opportunity to accelerate your Company’s redemption potential faster, with multiple Cards enrolled earning points quickly in Corporate Membership Rewards
