The Amex Offers program has just rolled out a great new targeted offer for the purchase of British Airways flights, which could be worth considering for anyone planning transatlantic travel.

Save $180 on a British Airways itinerary

With a new targeted Amex Offers deal, you can earn a $180 statement credit when you spend $1,200 or more with British Airways by June 23, 2024.

Spend $1,200+ with British Airways, get $180 back

There are some terms to be aware of:

  • The flight needs to be booked directly through the British Airways website
  • The flight needs to originate in the United States and be charged in USD
  • While you need to book by June 23, 2024, it’s okay if you travel on subsequent dates
  • You can spend the $1,200 across one or more transactions to qualify for this offer
  • This offer excludes purchases made through partner sites, agents, affiliates, and third parties

It’s possible that there’s also a version of the offer for 18,000 bonus Membership Rewards points if spending $1,200+. If so, I’d definitely prefer that offer, since I value Amex points at 1.7 cents each, so those points would be worth $306 to me.

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 The Platinum Card® from American Express (review) for this offer. That’s because the Amex Platinum offers 5x points on airfare purchased directly with airlines (on up to $500,000 of flight purchases per calendar year, and then 1x).

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 $1,200 ticket, you’d earn a total of 6,000 Membership Rewards points plus $180 cash back. That’s awesome.

Bottom line

There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal for $180 back when you spend $1,200+ on a British Airways purchase. If you’re planning travel on British Airways, 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.

Keep in mind that this offer should also work if you’re booking award tickets with high fuel surcharges, since those should qualify as “tickets” for these purposes.

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

    I don’t see the offer on Amex Plat but can see on Amex Marriott Bonvoy card.

    Theres a very small window where this isnt a net loss. Since you need to spend $1200 but also If the cost is > $1,800 youre better off with CHASEBA10 10% discount code.

    1. Kris Guest

      Right now, CHASEBA10 is not working as the contract for the 10% discount is not renewed yet. It expired around March 9, 2024. I am still waiting for that offer.

    2. Ryan Gold

      True it is broken, but word is its coming back soon (whatever that translate in BA IT timescales...)
