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.

 

The 3 best options for spending your American Express reward points

1. Convert American Express Reward points into Airline Miles

American Express Belgium or Luxembourg Welcome Bonus

This is probably the best option you have, convert your points into Airline Miles.

After you’ve changed your points into miles, you can book tickets for free in any class you want, or upgrade to a higher class. Just make sure you have enough miles.

What are 150.000 welcome bonus points worth?

  • With British Airways and other Oneworld partners. 150.000 American Express points are worth 100.000 Avios!

If you’re booking a Premium economy ticket from London to New York and wish to upgrade one leg to business class, you’ll need, 25.000 Avios, for the Round Trip it would be 50.000 Avios.

Meaning, with this welcome bonus from the American Express card, you could upgrade 2 round trip flights (or 1 flight for 2 persons) from London to New York to Business Class from Premium Economy.

  • With Miles-and-More, 150.000 American Express points are worth 75.000 Miles. A business class Round Trip from Europe to worldwide destination in Business Class starts already at 55.000 Miles with the “Meilenschnäppchen” offer.

You have more possibilities to convert your points to miles with other partners, as shown in this list:

2. 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.

3. Convert American Express Reward points into shopping vouchers

Another possibility is to use your reward points for shopping vouchers and buy products via the American Express website. This is usually not a good value compared to transferring the points to airline miles or even hotel points.

 

How much does the Amex card cost?

  • Amex Platinum: 65€ a month.
  • Amex Gold: 20€ a month.

It is possible to cancel the card at any time, but your bonus points might be waived if you cancel within the first year.

 

Are there more benefits for American Express cardholders?

As mentioned earlier, you can collect American Express reward points and change them into airline miles for booking or upgrading flights or hotel points for free stays, but there are even more advantages…

      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********@hotmail.com.

      • 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.

        Dear Sir,

        could you please provide me with a link to get the Amex gold if I am a Luxembourg resident. I thought it was for US resident only.

        In facture, I am looking to have gold status at Hilton. I Heard that DKB in Germany offered Hilton honors credit card but they will stop at the end of September.

          Hello, for Hilton Gold status, you will need the American Express Platinum card. You won’t get gold status with Hilton with the American Express Gold card.

      • S

        Thanks for Posting this.

        Is it for former Amex owners as well. I had a platinum and then closed it couple of years ago. So Am I eligible for this offer as well.

        • Miguel Prieto

          Hi,
          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

      Hi,
      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

          Hi,
          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,
          Vincent

          • 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 ;).
