1 Rewards points: You will earn 1 reward point (“point”) for each dollar of eligible net purchases charged to your account during each billing cycle.  Net purchases are purchases minus credits and returns.  You will also earn 1 additional point (for a total of 2 points) for each dollar of net purchases charged to your account during each billing cycle at merchant locations that are classified in any of the following merchant category codes: hotels and restaurants. In addition, you will earn 2 additional points (for a total of 3 points) for each dollar of net purchases charged to your account during each billing cycle at merchant locations that are classified in the merchant category code of airlines. Merchants are assigned category codes by American Express based on what they primarily sell. A purchase will not earn additional points if the merchant’s code is not in an eligible category. We do not determine the category codes that merchants are assigned, but we do reserve the right to determine which purchases qualify for additional points. Purchases made through a third-party payment account or on an online marketplace (with multiple retailers) will not earn additional points. In addition, a purchase may not earn additional points if the merchant submits the purchase using a mobile or wireless card reader or if you use a mobile or digital wallet to make the purchase. The number of points that may accumulate in any monthly billing cycle for your account is unlimited.
