How do I take part in American Express Entertainment program?
All you need is an American Express card and a Ticketmaster account. Once you have the two, here’s how to use the program:

How do I pay with points?
To pay with points, you need to call 800-AXP-EARN. The value of points when redeemed at Ticketmaster is 0.5 cents each, meaning you need 10,000 membership reward points to redeem for a $50 ticket. This is a low value, considering you can get 1 cent per point for other redemption options.
