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

Save $250 on a Qantas itinerary

With a new targeted Amex Offers deal, you can earn a $250 statement credit when you spend $1,250 or more with Qantas by August 27, 2023.

Spend $1,250+ with Qantas, get $250 back

There are some terms to be aware of:

  • The flight needs to be booked directly through the Qantas website
  • The flight needs to originate in the United States and be charged in USD
  • While you need to book by August 27, 2023, it’s okay if you travel on subsequent dates
  • The offer is not valid for purchases by phone, at terminals, lounges, or on-board flights
  • Purchases such as additional baggage and seat selection fees are included if purchased with initial booking and if they appear on the same receipt as the flight
  • Excludes all purchases with third parties, affiliates, partners, travel insurance, car rentals, hotels, airport transfers, tours, activities, gift vouchers, vacation purchases, merchandise, Bid Now Upgrades, The Qantas Club membership & lounge access fees, and purchases made via the Points Plus Pay program

It’s possible that there’s also a version of the offer for 25,000 bonus Membership Rewards points if spending $1,250+. If so, I’d definitely prefer that offer, since I value Amex points at 1.7 cents each, so those points would be worth $425 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 $1,250 ticket, you’d earn a total of 6,250 Membership Rewards points plus $250 cash back. That’s awesome.

Bottom line

There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal for $250 back when you spend $1,250+ on a Qantas purchase. If you’re planning travel on Qantas, 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?
