American Express is also teaming with Conde Nast, Thrillist and Vox to provide card members with more experiences and opportunities, the announcement stated.

“Part of what makes our brand so special is our community of card members,” American Express Chief Marketing Officer Elizabeth Rutledge said in the announcement. “To thank them for making the choice to be #withAmex and placing their trust in us every day, we’ve created Membership Week, celebrating their passions all week with unique experiences and relevant offers.”
