Straight to the Point

There’s a brand new American Express offer which gives 20,000 Membership Reward points after spending $1,000 on Air France!


What are American Express Offers

American Express offers are discounts and bonuses that are targeted to certain American Express cardholders. Most AMEX cards are eligible for offers. You can check if you’re targeted by logging into the AMEX app or website and scrolling down till you find the offers section. There’s usually discounts to all sorts of retailers and restaurants there. Note that specific credit cards and individuals are targeted for different offers. So not everyone will see this 20,000 point offer.


How to get 20,000 AMEX Membership Reward Points

Here’s how to actually get the 20,000 points if you’re eligible for the offer:

  • Go to the AMEX app or website and activate the offer.
  • Pay for the $1,000 Air France spending with the activated credit card.
  • Must book through the US version of the Air France website or Air France app.
  • Must book by April 14, 2017. There’s no time requirement for the actual flight.
  • You don’t need to spend the full $1,000 in one transaction. You can break it up into several transactions.

Keep in mind that you can book other Air France partners, like KLM and Delta, through Air France’s website. So you aren’t restricted to only flying on Air France metal.


Final Thoughts

20,000 Membership Reward points is a huge bonus for spending $1,000. AMEX points are great because they’re very flexible. You can transfer them to 17 airline partners and three hotel partners including Aeroplan, FlyingBlue, Delta, Etihad, Singapore KrisFlyer and more!


I’m kind of bummed that I’m not targeted for this offer and have to miss an easy 20,000 points. If I were eligible for the bonus I’d probably book a flight from the US to somewhere in Europe on KLM metal and build in a stopover in Amsterdam. I’ve been wanting to visit Amsterdam for ages but I keep putting it off. This would have been a good excuse to make it happen.


How to Pay

If you’re lucky enough to have an American Express Platinum card targeted, you’ll get 5X points per dollar in addition to the 20,000 point bonus!
