Now You Can Pay With American Express Rewards Points at McDonald’s
If you are an American Express cardholder and part of their rewards program, you may like the idea of redeeming rewards in real time at McDonald’s. It may seem strange but when you are hungry it will come in handy.
The pay-with-points service is expected to roll out to all participating McDonald’s U.S. locations by December 2014. Initially, though, it will be offered in New York and Chicago, and then in Phoenix and San Francisco.
After swiping their credit card at the counter, AmEx cardholders will see the option to pay with rewards points. The number of points required to cover an order will be displayed. Consumers just need to click if they want to pay with points. There are no codes and no registration needed. The whole transaction is supposed to take milliseconds. If you prefer buying food at drive-through, you can use AmEx mobile app.
The conversion rate is 100 points for $1 worth of food. It is convenient and quick, you won’t need to sit and do math.
In addition to the ability to pay using reward points for McDonald’s purchases, American Express will be donating $1 to Ronald McDonald House Charities every time a cardholder uses the service.
American Express is leveraging a big opportunity giving consumers options to choose. They want to make the experience at McDonald’s easy and convenient, and this additional method of payment offers more options to the American Express cardholders.
