Amex Membership Month unlocks deals and discounts this August

American Express has chosen August to thank its members with exclusive deals and cashback offers across retail, travel, dining, entertainment and wellness.

The promotion unlocks scores of ‘Spend and Save’ offers and perks. Think dining discounts at Chiswick and China Diner, travel deals with partners including Expedia and Agoda, and retail and wellness promotions with Myer and Barre Body.

Here’s how American Express is rewarding Card Members with Membership Month this August:

Get 5,000 bonus points by adding an Additional Card

First up, Amex is offering 5,000 bonus points for Card Members who apply for an Additional Card Member to join their account by 31 August 2022.

An Additional Card is linked to the Primary Account and shares some of the benefits of an American Express membership (for friends or family members aged over 16).

While it’s possible to add up to four Additional Cards to the Primary Account, the 5,000 bonus points offer only applies to the addition of the first card (which must be in a different name).

Members simply need to log in to their account to apply for an Additional Card, which involves an easy online application (no credit checks required). This offer excludes David Jones Membership Rewards Cards. T&Cs apply.

Note that it will take 8-10 weeks after the Additional Card is approved for bonus points to be awarded to the Primary Card Member.

Broaden your horizons with travel offers

Membership Month is the time for American Express Card Members to lock in an escape, with travel deals offering special discounts and ‘Spend and Save’ offers galore.

There are plenty of deals available, with notable offers including:

  • 12% off eligible hotels at Agoda: Book with your American Express Card at by 30 November 2022, for stays completed by 5 April 2023. Valid at participating hotels only.
  • Spend $400, get $80 back at Four Seasons: Spend in one or more transactions at participating Four Seasons properties in Australia until 30 November 2022. Limited to first 10,000 Cards.

Other travel-inspiring deals are also on offer with Wyndham Hotels, Hertz, and Expedia. Exclusions and T&Cs apply for all offers. To access ‘Spend and Save’ offers, you need to save the offer to your Card Account (registration caps apply).

Indulge this Membership Month with shopping and dining deals

It’s August, which means Card Members are likely craving some good food and retail therapy to see out the winter.

During American Express Membership Month, Card Members can get 15% back on each spend with a range of dining partners.

The Golden Sheaf in Sydney, Melbourne’s Le Bon Ton and Bisou Bisou in Brisbane are some of the leading eateries available with this offer. For those who are foodie-inclined, there’s also a 10% bonus available on Gourmet Traveller restaurant gift cards between 18 August and 31 August 2022.

These are just some of the deals that join a suite of shopping offers with Net-a-Porter, Mr Porter, and gift cards from other retailers like Amazon and Myer.

Access a world of entertainment and wellness

American Express is rewarding its Card Members with the ultimate entertainment experiences and wellness offers.

During Membership month, Amex is offering early access to some of the best entertainment events, such as Sydney WorldPride 2023, Wimbledon 2023 and music concerts from headline acts including Crowded House, Justin Bieber and OneRepublic.

Card Members who prefer to move, rather than spectate, can also use Membership Month to keep healthy for less by redeeming exclusive wellness offers with Barre Body and Barry’s, slashing the cost of a membership or fitness class pack.


American Express Membership Month comes at a time when Card Members are warming back up to the idea of travel, and are likely preparing to farewell winter by getting out and about to enjoy dining experiences as well as hitting the gym again.

This initiative is a prime example of the way American Express rewards its Card Members with appealing initiatives simply for choosing Amex.

While some offers are available until November, many expire at the end of August. So, follow the steps to register and get booking.

Individual terms and conditions apply to each offer and can be found at the bottom of the American Express Membership Month page. [link expired]
