Earn 17,500 Amex Points with this ITA flights offer [Targeted]

American Express has partnered with ITA Airways to offer card members the opportunity to earn 17,500 Membership Rewards points on spending made by the end of the year. This targeted offer is a reprise of a previous offer that ran earlier this year. While ITA Airways only serves six US cities, for some, this offer will be very tempting.

To trigger this offer, card members must spend a minimum of $1,000 in one or more purchases online at ita-airways.com by December 31, 2023. The flight must originate in the US and be charged in USD to qualify. It’s important to note that enrollment is limited, and card members must first add the offer to their card and then use the same card to redeem.

The terms and conditions of the offer state that it is only valid on flights booked directly with ITA Airways online at the US website ita-airways.com or through the ITA Airways US mobile app. It excludes purchases made through partner sites, agents, affiliates, and third parties. Additional points will be credited to the Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after December 31, 2023.

While the spending target required to trigger this offer isn’t particularly high, there are some limitations. The rebate is only available on trips originating in the United States and fares paid in USD. Additionally, cardholders only have until the end of the year to book one or more trips costing $1,000 in total to trigger the offer.

However, it’s important to note that cardholders don’t have to fly by December 31, 2023, to receive the bonus points. They only need to have paid for their fare(s) by then. This means the offer should cover travel into November 2023.

In terms of value, the offer effectively provides a rebate of $262.50 based on a valuation of Membership Rewards points at 1.5 cents each.

It’s worth mentioning that ITA Airways serves Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. in the US.

The offer appears to be targeted to various American Express cards, including The Platinum Card from American Express and The Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express. This suggests that the offer isn’t restricted to a small number of card members and that both consumer and business cards are being targeted.

For those who don’t have The Platinum Card from American Express, the next best card to see this targeted offer would likely be the American Express Green Card, which offers 3 points per dollar on most travel purchases.

In conclusion, if you’re considering booking a transatlantic trip for travel next year and if you’re based in or around a metropolitan area served by ITA, it’s worth checking your Amex account to see if you’ve been targeted for this offer. The opportunity to earn 17,500 bonus Membership Rewards points on just $1,000 of spending is one of the best Amex offers seen this year. If ITA’s routes and schedule work for you, this could be an easy way to boost your Membership Rewards balance.
