Keep Your AMEX Membership Rewards Points Active With No Annual Fees

Million Mile Secrets reader, Karen, commented:

One question which I haven’t seen addressed anywhere is what card you recommend to keep from having our AMEX Membership Rewards points disappear.  My understanding is that if you don’t have an active AMEX Membership Rewards card, the points are forfeited.  Once the Costco AMEX disappears, what should we replace it with to keep our AMEX Membership Rewards points active?  Thanks.

Great question, Karen!

You need at least 1 card that’s linked to your AMEX Membership Rewards program number or you will lose ALL your points.

Having the Costco AMEX won’t help you because it does NOT earn AMEX Membership Rewards points, only cash back.  So Karen must have another card that DOES earn AMEX Membership Rewards points.
