“We are thrilled to partner with Facebook to bring this first-of-its kind opportunity to small business card members who can now leverage the marketing power of the world’s largest social media platform in a smart and effective way," said Ed Gilligan, Vice Chairman at American Express.

Card members can redeem membership rewards points for Facebook ads through American Express OPEN’s Facebook Page facebook.com/OPEN or the membership rewards program website at membershiprewards.com. In the coming weeks, American Express will roll out a national marketing program to support this launch.
