American Express and JustGiving are joining forces to offer enhanced donations for a worthy cause. Here are all the details for the limited-time-only JustGiving event, where American Express will match 10X the amount of donations to Feeding America.

Amex Matching Donations Tenfold

Select American Express cardholders can now receive a 10X match on their donation to Feeding America. Using Membership Rewards points for charitable donations through JustGiving will receive an enhanced matching donation from Amex for a limited time.

The new program is a joint venture designed to assist organizations that are working towards COVID-19 relief efforts. When a cardmember donates their Membership Rewards points to Feeding America, Amex will match that donation tenfold. Donating $100 in points, for instance, results in a $1,000 match from Amex.

The official language for the promotion, which will end once the issuer donates $1,000,000, reads as follows:

“After an Eligible Card Member, as defined in the Program Terms for using Membership Rewards Points for JustGiving, uses Membership Rewards® points towards a donation to Feeding America through JustGiving, American Express will match 10x the dollar amount of each donation, up to $1,000,000 in total donations.”

Eligible Amex Membership Rewards Cards

The JustGiving donation offer is only open to eligible Amex charge cards and credit cards. Only those cards that earn Amex Membership Rewards points are eligible. That list of cards includes the following Amex products:
