If you’re an Amex Platinum or Business Platinum cardholder and you’re thinking of booking any travel between now and March 31st, 2021, you may want to check Amex Travel. Certain flights are popping up as recommended and pricing quite a bit less than you can find them elsewhere. Apparently this has been going on for a little while, but alas, it completely escaped me. This reminds me of their International Airline Program which is always worth a gander, but includes economy flights this time around. You’ll also earn 5x points on these flights which is amazing.
Here’s a quick look at the program
- Purchase with your Amex Plat or Biz Plat by 12/31/20
- Travel by 3/31/21
I randomly looked up LAX to JFK in early January – starred with Recommended – $195
Compare this to Google Flights
The bigger the route, the more you’ll see recommended flights pop up, and there is definitely value to the program. Is it universally cheaper? No, but it’s an option I would heavily consider if you’re looking to book a flight and carry either an Amex Plat or Biz Plat.
