If you’re not familiar with Ebates, it is one of the many cash back portals you can use to save money on your online purchases.  Normally, you earn a percentage of what you spend in cash rewards.  But now Ebates has added the option of converting your cash rewards into AMEX Membership Rewards points.  The conversation ratio is 1 cent to 1 AMEX point, so $1 is worth 100 points.

Right now the feature is only available to new members who sign-up through a special link.  But they are offering a 1,500 AMEX point bonus to new members and it would only make sense for them to roll this feature out to existing users soon.

To be notified when that happens, sign-up for our newsletter and we’ll let you know.

Ebates is allowing new members to convert their cash back rewards into AMEX Membership Rewards points

New Way to Earn AMEX Membership Rewards Points

Right now the ability to link your AMEX Membership Rewards points account and your Ebates account is limited to new members who sign-up through this link.

Once you create an account through that link, you’ll need to make $25 in purchases within the first 90 days to earn the 1,500 AMEX Membership Rewards points bonus.

Being able to convert cash rewards to AMEX points at a rate of 1 cent per point is a good deal.  It’s not hard to get much more value than that by transferring points to AMEX’s travel partners.
