Double American Express Membership Rewards Points for Amex-Booked Travel

I really like American Express Travel, especially since they ran a crazy promo last month where I snagged a bunch of hotel rates at 50% off (my Four Seasons Dublin stay was only $112!).

They are now running double Membership Rewards points for travel booked through them. If you have an Amex card that participates in Membership Rewards, this is a no-brainer, since most of the flights/hotels/cruises are the same, if not cheaper through Amex.

Click here for the link. I don’t see a start/end, but I think this may just be for the month of January.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS To be eligible to earn double points, you must be enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program (“Program”) at the time of purchase and you must charge your air, Lowest Rates Guaranteed hotel, Complete Trip (flight + hotel packages), American Express Vacations package and cruise reservations on an eligible,  enrolled American Express® Card through Any portion of a charge that you elect to pay through redemption of Membership Rewards points is not eligible to earn points. Bonus ID 3218 (Air, Hotel, and Complete Trip); Bonus ID 5432 (Cruise); Bonus ID 6955 (American Express Vacations Packages). Bonus points will be credited to your program account 10-12 weeks after final payment has been made. Some American Express Cards are not eligible for enrollment in the program. Terms and Conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. For more information on the Membership Rewards program, visit or call 1-800-AXP-EARN (297-3276).  Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice.

    This is a great tip. Thank you! One question: American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card earns 3X points on airfare. If I can earn double American Express Membership Rewards points for Amex-booked travel, how many points per dollar do I earn if I book the trip through Amex and pay with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card?
