American Express announced yesterday a new digital technology integration that enables U.S. Card Members to use Membership Rewards points for online purchases on Newegg.com, a top 5 online retailer. Customers shopping on Newegg.com can now seamlessly use their points at checkout, directly in the payment flow, for all or part of their purchases.
You will only get a value of o.7 cent per MR point, so this is not the best use of your points, since you can always get at least double that value through travel partners. Hopefully they will have some promotions coming around, similar to Amazon when paying with UR points.
How to Use Membership Rewards Points on Newegg.com
- Open “My Shopping Cart” and proceed through the checkout process
- Enter an eligible American Express Card enrolled in the Membership Rewards program in the payment flow or use Amex Express Checkout with an eligible Card
- Select “Check Points Balance” to see your available points balance and the equivalent dollar value and designate how many points to use for all or part of your purchase
- Confirm and place your order
