Huge New Amex Offer: 20K MR Points for $1K Spend on Air France and More Offers

Written by Charlie

Check out this huge new Amex Offer that will let you earn 20k MR points by booking $1,000 in tickets with Air France! This means 20 bonus points per dollar!

This is what I’m talking about with Amex Offers! While getting cashback is nice, getting up to 21 Membership Reward points per dollar is even nicer! Especially when that adds up to 21,000 Membership Reward points! I am not sure if this is a targeted offer or not as it was available on the only MR card I have right now but you will want to check and add it quickly as it likely won’t last for long!

New Amex Offers

Air France

20K mr points

  • Get 20000 additional Membership Rewards points one-time by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $1000+ in one or more eligible transactions
  • Valid online at
  • Expires 4/14/2017
  • Offer valid only for purchases made directly with online or via the Air France mobile app

This is a huge deal! Also, take note of the wording that this is valid for one or more transactions totaling $1,000. That means you do not have to buy one ticket/transaction. Several smaller tickets will work as well.

Since the Amex Platinum Business card (which is what we have) gives a rebate of 50% of the points used on your selected airline in economy and all business class tickets, this would out really well if you used these points for that!

All in all, this is a very compelling offer that is of great interest to me, even though I do not have any travel planned on Air France. Remember, the tickets just have to be purchased by 4/14, they don’t have to be flown by then.

Ticket Suggestions

Head over to Google Flights to check out some of your options. Within 60 seconds, I found 2 tickets for just $855 to Spain out of JFK. While that is not as good of a deal as some of the recent deals, getting that just up to $1,000 will net you 21,000 Membership Reward points! Most people would consider those to be worth at least $370 so you are standing to get quite a rebate!

20k mr points

Norwegian Cruise Line

20k mr points

  • Get a one-time $100 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $500 or more to purchase a cruise
  • Valid with Norwegian Cruise Line via, by phone or through your travel agent
  • Must be purchased between 2/10/17 and 4/30/17

Any other good Amex Offers pop up this morning for you?
