Save On Air France-KLM Flights With Amex Offers (Targeted)

Save On Air France-KLM Flights With Amex Offers (Targeted)

7

The Amex Offers program has just rolled out a great new targeted offer for the purchase of Air France-KLM flights, which could be worth considering for anyone planning travel. We saw a similar offer in early 2022, so it’s nice to see this return.

Earn 20K points on an Air France-KLM itinerary

With a new targeted Amex Offers deal, you can earn 20,000 Amex Membership Rewards bonus points when you spend $1,000 or more with Air France-KLM by November 6, 2022.

There are some terms to be aware of:

  • The flight needs to be booked directly through the Air France or KLM website or app
  • The flight needs to originate in the United States and be charged in USD
  • While you need to book travel by November 6, 2022, it’s okay if you travel on subsequent dates
  • With Air France, the offer excludes Air France Music, Air France Saphir, Air France Shopping, convention, conference, and seminar services, baggage drop off, group reservations, La Boutique Air France, parking, Stress Free Flying workshop, flight crew training, and the Flying Blue Store
  • With KLM, the offer excludes KLM Package Deals, City Pass Amsterdam, hotel bookings, car rentals, ground transportation, tours, airport transfers, equipment services, [email protected], purchases of miles, lounge access fees, KLM Jet Center, and KLM Wanna Gives

This is an awesome promo, given that you can earn Amex Membership Rewards points rather than cash back. Personally I value Amex points at 1.7 cents each, so to me the 20,000 points are worth $340 — that’s a ~34% return on Air France-KLM spending, in the right increments.

Ideally you’ll see this offer on the Amex Platinum

This offer is targeted, though it’s possible you’ll see it on multiple of your Amex cards. If so, I’d highly recommend registering your Amex Platinum Card for this offer. That’s because the Amex Platinum offers 5x points on airfare purchased directly with airlines.

I value Membership Rewards points at 1.7 cents each, so to me those points alone are worth an incremental 8.5% return. On top of that, the Amex Platinum offers excellent travel protection, should you experience irregular operations.

In other words, if you took advantage of this offer with the Amex Platinum for a $1,000 ticket, you’d earn a total of 25,000 Membership Rewards points, which I value at $425 — that’s quite a return on spending!

Bottom line

There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal for 20,000 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $1,000+ on an Air France-KLM flight. If you’re planning travel on Air France or KLM, this has the potential to be a great deal. Ideally you’ll see this offer on the Amex Platinum, so that you can really maximize your points.

Were you targeted for this Amex Offers deal, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of it?

    I was about to use this offer since I thought it expires end of today but noticed it is now expiring Dec 1st, 2022.

    I saw this offer on my list with Amex platinum card and started researching flights. Days later the offer disappeared so I called customer service. Person I talked to said the offer is no longer available. They checked with someone higher up and confirmed I can no longer get the offer even though it had listed that it went until the 6th of November. I asked to speak to that person and the customer service...

I asked to speak to that person and the customer service representative said that they refused to take the call. For a premium card I am not impressed with the customer service. Really shady to list an offer with a set deadline and then take it away well before end date. Maybe you should update article

    Can it be activated by paying for taxes and fees on a redemption?

    So if one were to buy a US $15,000 ticket, one would get 95,000 MR points? That Amex bonus is sweet!

    Capital One Venture X can’t hold a candle to this one.

    The odd thing about this offer is you can't get the bonus if you book through AMEX's own travel portal, thereby not being able to take advantage of AMEX's premium cabin program. You can only book on the US based Air France or KLM websites.

    What have AF/KLM recent policies been in terms of cancellation/re-scheduling and refunding? It used to be quite lenient during the aforementioned last MR promo.

  7. Trey Guest

    Will this work for paying YQ/Taxes on award tickets, say, if I have multiple people on reservation? Also I assume I'll have to book as roundtrip ticket originating in US for this to trigger?
