Zynga and American Express team up for virtual Membership Rewards
"Our partnership with American Express marks the first time that virtual goods are available for purchase with rewards points and reinforces our commitment to offer consumers meaningful experiences that enhance their game play," says Vishal Makhijani, Zynga's SVP of Business Operations.
Take a look at some of the items you can buy with points after the break.
-Manx Cat (435 points)
-Purple Cow (540 points)
-Outdoor Fountain (1,080 points)
-AMEX Lightning Stove (1,945 points)
-Ridable Import Roadster (755 points)
-Animated Robot Boy and Girl (325 points each)
While there isn't exactly a wide selection right now, 20 more items are on the way Dec. 6 including FrontierVille (including those golden items, so no Gold Rush just yet) and Treasure Isle items, according to Zynga and American Express. Finally, a way to justify buying virtual goods without actually spending money has arrived. Just don't go overboard, OK?
