Amex Offers are promotions from all types of merchants, available to you as an Amex cardmember in connection with purchases made with your American Express card. A new offer that just popped up is the chance to pick up 20,000 Membership Rewards points when you spend $1,000 with Air France. This offer worth looking at when you consider the value of 20,000 Membership Rewards points.
How it Works
The Air France offer is straightforward and valid through April 14, 2017. You don't have to travel by then, but you must purchase your ticket(s) by April 14th, and the charge needs to post your American Express account by that date. Apart from the deadline, the rules are as follows:
- You need to register for the promotion by logging into your Amex account and heading to the offers page, and selecting the Air France offer
- You must make your purchase with Air France online, or via their mobile app
- Phone bookings and bookings made at physical locations are NOT eligible for the bonus
- Multiple purchases are okay, as long as they total $1,000 and hit your account before April 14, 2017
- Buying Flying Blue points does not count as qualifying spending
Full terms of the promotion from AmericanExpress.com:
Offer valid only for purchases made directly with airfrance.us online or via the Air France mobile app. Not valid on purchases made by phone or at physical locations including, but not limited to airports, local sale offices, and lounges. Excludes hotel bookings and car rentals when purchased separately from airline ticket/package. Offer not valid for group airline reservations, prepaid airport parking, or any purchases made through 3rd party/affiliated links on airfrance.us. Purchases or transfers of Flying Blue miles do not qualify for the offer. Enrollment limited. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: Must add offer to Card and use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to the same Membership Rewards program account (such as Additional Cards). Offer is non-transferable. EARNING POINTS: Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account and limit of 20000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card. These additional points are in addition to any points you would normally receive for purchases on your Card under the terms of your Card Member Agreement and the Membership Rewards program. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Program account within 90 days after 4/14/2017, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms or call 1-800-AXP EARN (297-3276) for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice. The value of Membership Rewards points varies according to how you choose to use them. To learn more, go to www.membershiprewards.com/pointsinfo. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. Bonus ID: B2JV POID: CFC5:0001
What is This Offer Worth?
Depending on how you look at the offer and your plans, this offer can work out to be worth anywhere from $200 to $400 or even more for your travel. As a minimum, Membership Rewards points are worth a cent when you book through AmexTravel.com, giving you a value of $200. If you use The Business Platinum® Card from American Express to purchase an economy class flight on your selected airline of choice, or if you buy a Business class or First class ticket on any airline, you'll get an effective value of 2 cents a point with the 50% rebate. This provides you a value of $400 for the points, equating to a 40% discount on the spend.
If you've received this offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express, remember you'll earn 5 points per dollar for travel booked at airfrance.us.
If you opt to transfer your points, you can even leverage more value out of 20,000 points. Check out our 5 excellent transfer strategies for American Express Membership Rewards, or review the full list of American Express Travel Partners.
