There are so many things that you can do with that much Membership Rewards Points. 

Here’s how I used Membership Rewards points for my All Nippon Airways Round the World Travel. 

I flew below 7 First/Business Class segments RTW only with 160K Membership Rewards Points.

On my 6th segment, HND-LAX, I enjoyed every bit of below ANA First Class on B777-300ER. 
Amazing on both hardware and service. Their food was delicious as well.

After this amazing RTW Trip back in March 2018, I decide to collect more Membership Rewards points to go another trip like this in near future. 
This is very good offer from American Express even it requires a bit higher spending requirements. 
Remember, this is business charge card and this requirements are not too much for most of business owners, I think.

Membership Rewards program offers several good partners to transfer its points. 
Here are my Top 5 ways to use Membership Rewards on partner Airlines
1. ANA Round the World Travel 
2. Delta Airlines transfer for Delta one – 70K one way to Europe
3. ANA Transfer to book RT US-ASIA Business Class 95K – Fly Asiana Airlines
4. Transfer to British Airways to book PUS-NRT Economy Class 4.5K – Fly Japan Airlines
5. Transfer to Singapore Airlines to book Singapore First Suite
I have tried all above except #3 on the list but actually that is the best Business Class RT redemption you can book these day.
