Fewer points for prepaid cards

For a limited time, you can redeem fewer points for prepaid cards:

Prepaid Card Regular Promo
$25 3,125 points 2,500 points
$50 6,250 points 5,000 points
$100 12,500 points 10,000 points
$200 25,000 points 20,000 points
$500 62,500 points 50,000 points
$1,000 125,000 points 100,000 points

For example, if in the past few months you have earned 50,000 points with the American Express Cobaltâ„¢ Card, you could redeem them for a $500 prepaid card.

If you don’t have this Card yet, get it before the promotion ends:

Fewer points for amazon.ca

For a limited time only, you can redeem fewer points for purchases on Amazon.ca. Instead of using 1,000 points for $7, you can redeem 1,000 points for $10 on Amazon.ca.

Conclusion

In both cases, the redemption rate is the same as what you would get by using your points for travel purchases made with your Card: 1 cent per point.

However, this is less than you could get by transferring your points to a program like Marriott Bonvoy (or Aeroplan for eligible cards).

But at a time when travel is scarce, one of these two options may be of interest to you! Here are the eligible American Express cards:
