The Amex Offers program has just rolled out a great new targeted offer for the purchase of JSX flights, which could be worth considering for anyone planning travel on this unique US airline.
Save $100 on a JSX itinerary
With a new targeted Amex Offers deal, you can earn a $100 statement credit when you spend $500 or more with JSX by October 27, 2023.
First for those not familiar, JSX is an airline that operates 30-seat regional jets in a more comfortable configuration, flying from private terminals. The airline offers free drinks and snacks, a convenient arrival and departure experience, and free Wi-Fi, so it’s a popular option for the markets in which it operates.
There are some terms to be aware of:
- The flight needs to be booked directly through the JSX website or app
- The flight needs to originate in the United States and be charged in USD
- While you need to book by October 27, 2023, it’s okay if you travel on subsequent dates
- You can spend the $500 across one or more transactions to qualify for this offer
It’s possible that there’s also a version of the offer for 10,000 bonus Membership Rewards points if spending $500+. If so, I’d definitely prefer that offer, since I value Amex points at 1.7 cents each, so those points would be worth $170 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 $500 ticket, you’d earn a total of 2,500 Membership Rewards points plus $100 cash back. That’s awesome.
There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal for $100 back when you spend $500+ on a JSX purchase. If you’re planning travel on JSX, 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 Offer, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of it?
