In addition to the many Amex Offers I already wrote about this morning, here is another offer that might work for some of you! Spend $1,000+ on Air France or KLM and earn 20,000 American Express Membership Rewards points! To receive this bonus, you must book directly with Air France or KLM online or via the mobile app. Purchasing miles will not qualify! Since these are two different offers, you can actually take advantage of both if you happen to be booking many flights! You must have the charge hit your credit card statement by July 31, 2018. So even if you are booking a flight now for a date later in the year, you’ll still receive the bonus points.
To enroll in this offer:
- Sign into your AmericanExpress.com account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab. Find the Air France and/or KLM offer and make sure to select the “Add to Card” button (although once you do this for one card the option will disappear on other cards, so you’ll need to read this multiple tab trick post first to learn how to register multiple Amex cards with your AmericanExpress.com account)
- Spend $1,000+ with Air France or KLM on your registered credit card. This can be on ONE OR MORE transactions and they must hit your credit card by July 31, 2018! This does not mean you need to actually travel by this date, just have the flight paid for and hit your card by then.
For those that were going to pay for a flight with Air France or KLM, this is an awesome opportunity! 20,000 American Express Membership Reward points is worth a little less then $400. Although some might receive even more value depending on how you like to redeem your points. I value this promotion at about a 40% discount if you book a $1,000 flight on the nose!
Remember though, if you book your flight with an American Express credit card, you will not receive all the travel benefits as booking with an eligible Chase credit card for example. Amex does not have the same trip delay, luggage reimbursement, etc. benefits that Chase and many other cards have. So just keep that in mind.
