Amex Airfare Offer

American Express has released a brand new offer giving a $75 statement credit with a $300 or more purchase from any airline by 9/15/15. This offer seems to be highly targeted and I was not able to find it on any of my accounts.

Key Terms

  • Offer valid only to eligible US Card Members for purchases made directly with passenger airlines.
  • The following do not count as qualifying purchases and are excluded from the offer: (i) Charter flights and private jet flights; (ii) any flight purchased as part of a vacation package or through a third party (including agents for travel suppliers); (iii) Sky Mall purchases and (iv) Boingo wireless internet purchases.
  • When you make a qualifying purchase in a foreign currency, the applicable statement credit will be credited in your local currency using the exchange rate at the date the statement credit is applied.

Amex Travel Offer

There is also a second offer giving a $100 statement credit with a $600 or more hotel booking at by 9/30/15. This offer seems to be much more widely available and I was able to find it on almost all of my accounts.

  1. I received the $75 credit on $300 purchase on my SPG card. $100 credit on $600 purchase on three other Amex cards.

  2. Ugh – no 75/300 offers and only one card with 100/600 – but it’s limited to one HOTEL booking through Amex Travel. I rarely stay more than 2 nights at a hotel, and would never pay $250/night unless on business (when I’d get reimbursed anyway)…

  3. I guess the most obvious question is does Amex claw back credits if the purchase is later refunded? It seems like the obvious thing to do here is buy refundable tickets and get a refund once the credit posts.

  4. Between hubby and I:

    got 3x 50/300 airfare (2 x hilton amex and 1x blue cash preferred) all on primary accounts.

    Does anyone think Southwest giftcards will trigger credit?

  5. Oh yea regarding clawbacks…I’ve had mixed results on Amex offers: Kohl’s….ordered muliple times and ended up returning half (fit issues) and the credits stuck. Then booked two hilton rooms in orlando that required one nights deposit each and received amex credit. When I later cancelled rooms the credits were clawed back fairly quickly.

  6. Didn’t get that one but got $75 off $250 for some retailers including Staples and Home Depot (up to 5 credits)….I guess I can get some GCs and still get the credit 🙂

    • I got that one too ($75 off $250 @Staples)…doesn’t seem to exclude GCs. Has anyone tried it yet? I’m heading there tomorrow to stock up.

  7. Does giftcards through AA qualify? I’m getting mixed messages from Amex and American folks, as gift cards are ordered through which is slightly different from


  8. A couple of people have asked whether gift cards will qualify. Do we have any data points yet? I’ll probably give it a shot if nobody knows.
