Check your American Express accounts for a lucrative offer on ITA Airways, the flag carrier of Italy.

If you’re interested in visiting Italy’s greatest destinations, from Florence to Milan to the Amalfi Coast, you could earn a big chunk of Amex Membership Rewards points on your flight booking.

Here are the details of this new Amex Offer!

Amex Offer Details: ITA Airways

If you have multiple American Express cards, you’ll want to check all of them for this targeted Amex Offer. Once you enroll, you can earn 17,500 Amex Membership Rewards points after spending $1,000 or more on eligible ITA Airways flights.

As always, there is some fine print to be wary of:

  • Flight must originate in the U.S. and be charged in USD
  • Flights must be booked directly on ITA Airways’ website or mobile app and not a third-party or travel agent
  • Purchase can be made in 1 (or more) transactions
  • Bonus points will be credited to your Amex account within 90 days after Dec. 31, 2023

I found this Amex Offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express, which is easily one of the best cards for travel. The Amex Platinum card awards me 5x points on flights booked directly with the airline or through (up to $500,000 per year, then 1x).

If I spent exactly $1,000 on an ITA Airways booking, I could walk away with 22,500 Membership Rewards points stacked with the Amex Offer. We value Amex points at 2.2 cents apiece, making this deal worth about $495 toward future travel — nearly a 50% return.

Hot Tip:

Amex Membership Rewards points are one of the most valuable rewards currencies out there — read our guide on the best ways to redeem Amex points for maximum value.

About ITA Airways

Launched in 2021, ITA Airways was formerly Alitalia in another life. The relatively new airline offers nonstop routes from Italy and these 7 U.S. cities:

  • Boston (BOS)
  • Chicago (ORD)
  • Los Angeles (LAX)
  • Miami (MIA)
  • New York (JFK)
  • San Francisco (SFO)
  • Washington, D.C. (IAD)

ITA Airways is also part of the SkyTeam alliance. If you’re looking to save your cash and book ITA Airways with your points and miles, you’re in luck — the Italian airline is now bookable via Virgin Atlantic Flying Club and Flying Blue points.

Final Thoughts

This Amex Offer is perfect for vacationers planning their next getaway to Italy. Thanks to ITA Airways’ growing network, you could earn a huge chunk of Amex points on your next booking.
