The amount was calculated as follows: $20,000 in expenses per year equalling 25,000 reward points, which is equivalent to more than $2000 in electronic gift cards ($100 for every 12,500 points) or travel discounts ($100 for every 12,000 points). Certain eligibility conditions apply. The potential benefit amount varies depending on the annual expenses charged to the account.
