American Express points can be redeemed in a variety of ways. You can of course redeem them at a 1cent per point ratio for gift cards, you can use them to pay at Amazon, Or you can use them to transfer to Airlines and Hotel Chains.
If for example you wanted to fly to London for free, you can transfer your points To British Airways, Delta, etc; and get a free flight. Generally this redemption far exceeds the $500 you would get with redeeming the points for gift cards.
These offers don’t usually last long!!
