What can you do with American Express reward points?

  • Convert American Express Reward points into Miles

This is probably the best option you have, convert your points into Airline Miles. Below is a list to which Airlines you may transfer your Amex points and convert them into Miles.

  • Convert American Express Reward points into Hotel points

You can transfer your American Express points to Hotel chains, where you collect points to get free stays.

 

  • Convert American Express Reward points into shopping coupons

With American Express, you may transfer your Reward points as well into shopping coupons and buy products via the Amex homepage. This is usually not a good value compared to transferring the points to airline or even hotel points.

There are a few more options of what you can do with your American Express reward points….

 

What can you do with the 30000 Bonus Points?

As we are Premium-Flights, we would use those points to convert them into airline miles, and book a flight in Business or First class.

Here below is an example if you would transfer your Amex points to British Airways. But you may as well transfer your points to Air France, Brussels Airlines and others.

With British Airways:

The 30000 Amex bonus points that you get with the Platinum card will give you 20000 Avios.

  • Short haul flights within Europe in economy class with British Airways cost from 9000 Avios plus a few € in taxes and fees, for a return flight.
  • If you book a Premium economy ticket from London to New York and you want to upgrade one of the legs to business class, you will need 24000 Avios (off-peak). With the 20000 Avios that you get from the card you will need only another 4000 Avios. These are easy ways to collect the missing Avios via different other ways, read here.
  • A flight from New York to Miami in business class costs 15000 Avios plus around 5€ in taxes and fees, for a one way flight.

 

A few more examples of what you can do with Avios can be found here, for a lot of them you need more than 20000 Avios. However, this one time bonus will already give you a good kick-start.

British Airways Avios can also be converted 1 to 1 to the Iberia Plus program or Aer Lingus AerClub.

 

How much does the Amex card cost?

  • Amex Platinum: 50% the first year, you pay only 30€ a month.
  • Amex Gold: The first 3 months the card is for free. Thereafter, the card will cost you €16.25 a month.
  • Amex Green: €65 a year plus €18.5 a year for the reward program.
  • Amex Blue: €35 a year plus €18.5 a year for the reward program.

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

          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

      Hi,
      there is also an other bonus for the amex brussels airlines premium

        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.

          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.

          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.

              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 ;).
