Need A Getaway Or A Trip To The Spa? AmEx A Social Currency At Your Fingertips!

This year I made a vow to start truly living, enjoying my life and making the best out of what I have. I'll be twenty-eight years old at the end of the year and I don't think that I'm alone when I say that the older I get the faster time seems to fly right on by. So I decided to compile a list of things that I want to accomplish by the time I turn the big 3-0, and there are so many things that you'd probably be surprised to know that I haven't done yet.

One of those things on my list, is to travel. I've never been out of the south, which is why I've made plans to change that! I didn't want my first trip to be overwhelming so I decided to start small. A few of my girlfriends and I are planning a girls getaway to VEGAS!

I've never been, so of course I'm SUPER excited :o) We plan to site see, visit the Grand Canyon and the best part we're booking reservations at one of Vegas' beautiful luxury spa's for a day filled with pampering and relaxation!

I'm the type of woman who loves to maximize my experiences to their full potential. Which is why I'm really excited about the American Express Membership Rewards Program. The Membership Rewards are more than just points, it’s a social currency that connects Cardmembers to the people, experiences and things they love. And for me that would be traveling, being able to earn points that I can redeem towards travelling is not only a wonderful bonus but also a way to connect and make lasting memories along the way. I feel that this innovative social currency is more than just points. It's a staple that helps build solid and meaningful life experiences, like planning a mini vacation with your girlfriends and being able to share those photos and memories with your family and friends on Facebook. Social currency can help me connect in more ways than I've ever imagined. It's a lifestyle that only gets better!
