Why should I get an American Express credit card?

All of us spend money every day for daily purchases, like buying food at grocery stores, online purchases like Amazon, fuel stations, restaurants, IKEA and more.

By using your American Express card, you will collect American Express reward points for every Euro spent. Those reward points can be used for many things, like free flight tickets, upgrade to a higher class like business or first class, free stays at hotels or by obtaining gift vouchers in different stores.


What are the best options for spending your American Express reward points?

  • Convert American Express Reward points into Airline Miles

American Express Belgium or Luxembourg Welcome Bonus

  • Convert American Express Reward points into Hotel points

You can transfer your American Express points to Hotel chains like Hilton or Marriott, and use these points to get free stays.

      • premiumflights

        Hello, yes still valid. But American Express website has a few problems at the moment. We will send you the email once it is working again.

    • Jason

      I was about to sign up for Amex platinum and came across your post for 30k bonus. Can you send me the Belgium link? I just clicked on invite button for j********

      • premiumflights

        Hello, email has been sent a few minutes ago. For your information, it can take some time until the 30k bonus will show up on your account.

        • Miguel Prieto

          As of today I have not received the welcome points. The card was received already in May 2020. I called today the customer service and inquired about the 25,000 points. They said they will check and call me back. Did you get them already on your side?
          Thank you

          • premiumflights

            Hello and thank you for your feedback. No we didn’t get the points neither. We will do in the comming days an Email to those who’ve asked a card via our link. We will collect that data and we will contact American Express.

    • Andrew

      there is also an other bonus for the amex brussels airlines premium
      with 16k Miles for Miles and More.
      and you can collect 1,5 Miles for each 1 € spent.

      • premiumflights

        That’s true.
        It seems you can only apply for that you if you live in Belgium, we tried many times for Luxembourg and it didn’t work.
        And a big disadvantage, you can only collect for Miles and More.
        You collect however more Miles with every € spent, but Miles and More isn’t everybodys favourite program.

        • Andrew

          Thats strange.
          I have applied in September for the premium.
          I live and work in Luxembourg and it was approved directly.
          The card has been delivered within 10 working days.
          If people collect for MM then amex premium is very good product.

        • Mike

          One more big disadvantage is the impossibility for BE/LUX to join automatically the gold Status of several hotel chains (p.ex. Hilton, Marriott, etc) Very, very sad about this.
          While the neighbour countries have this incl.

        • Vincent

          I have tried different browsers and several e-mail addresses but I don’t get the e-mail.
          May I ask you to confirm me the „send button“ is still working for ?
          Many thanks,

          • premiumflights

            Yes, I got it several times. So you say you didn’t get an Email with a link? I will check that immediately, you will get an Email in the next minutes. Sorry for the delay..

            • premiumflights

              You should have received an Email now, I was on my way home from holiday today, and did it via the phone. Apparently, that didn’t work ;).
