AMEX Offer: 20,000 Points For Spending $1,000 With KLM

A newly added targeted Amex Offer popped up today offering 20,000 Membership Rewards points for paying at least $1,000 in flights through KLM. You do not have to spend all $1,000 in one transaction; you just have to purchase your flight(s) through KLM by December 31, 2017. One other note, the offer is for US cardholders, so Amex and KLM have added that the “flight must originate in US.”


This is a great opportunity to earn valuable Membership Reward points by booking multiple cheap trips to Europe. How much are 20,000 Membership Reward points worth? Currently, The Points Guy values them at 1.9 cents each.

So that 20k offer is worth about $380 or about 38% back if you spend exactly $1,000 with KLM.

Again, most Amex Offers are targeted, so not every card will be eligible for this promotion. Make sure to check your account, sign up for the offer, and book your $1,00o worth of flights through KLM by December 31 to get those valuable 20,000 Membership Reward Points.

I plan to use the offer by booking trips to Sweden and Denmark. I love Scandinavia in the winter!

Were you targeted for this offer? If so, how do you plan to spend the $1,000 on KLM?
