It looks pretty good. You get $10 certificate for every 2500 points (15 points per dollar spent is roughly $167 to earn the $10 reward). Looks like the free shipping is for the A-List card which you become eligible for after 7500 points. I wonder if you have to re-earn the A List every year like the Macy's Gold, Platinum and Elite cards (or MVC Kohls). I have not shopped at Express since they changed Structure into Express Men. I guess if you shop there a lot it could make sense. The card looks nice enough at least.

Have you heard if your existing Express card will be changed into this program?

Yes, my card is being converted. I am an A list member and I haven't had to re-earn my status. It is apparently easier to earn points because they allow you to earn points for retweeting them and following their twitter accounts. I'm pretty excited about it. I'm most excited about the free shipping though.

The free shipping is nice. Nordstrom recently began free shipping. Nothing worse than having to pay shipping to avoid the mall. Good to know that you don't have to re-earn the A list. That really irks me about Macy's and Kohls-having to re-earn it every year.

I was reading in Express terms and conditions that you do have to re-earn the status, let's say you earned 7,500 pts in 2011, the A-List status goes with you for the next year, in this case 2012, but you have to make sure you earn 7,500 points during 2012 so the status rolls into 2013...

My sister in law has the card and she was telling me they mail you gc's all the time for like $10 - $25 etc, it's like they pay you to shop
Amex: Business Platinum (09/12) BCP $10,500 (03/13)
Visa: Capital One Journey $750 (04/11) Chase Freedom $1,800 (04/12)
MasterCard Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select $8,500 (05/13)
Discover: Discover It $2500 (07/11)
Store Cards: Amazon $3900 (12/11) Macy's $500 (04/11) Kohl's $500 (05/12) Victoria's Secret $750 (11/12)

I shop with them all the time, so it isn't an issue. If Express ever closed operations, I seriously don't know where I would buy my going out clothes.
