Today is a great day to have an American Express credit card in your wallet.

If you’ve been targeted for Amex’s latest offer, you could earn a whopping 17.5k Membership Rewards for booking a trip to Italy with ITA Airways — the nation’s flag carrier.

Here are the details of this very generous offer, which is back for a second time.

Amex Offer Details: ITA Airways

The offer is not restricted to any particular American Express Card, so make sure to check each of your cards by logging in online or opening up your Amex app.

If you’ve been targeted, all you need to do is hit “enroll,” and you’ll earn 17,500 Amex Membership Rewards points after spending $1,000 or more on eligible flights with ITA Airways.

As Amex Offers always come with some terms and conditions, these are the most important to make note of for this particular offer:

  • 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 through a partner site, travel agent, affiliate, or third-party
  • Purchases must be made before May 3, 2024
  • Purchase can be made in 1 (or more) transactions
  • Bonus points will be credited to your Amex account within 90 days after May 3, 2024

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

If you spent the minimum of $1,000 on an ITA Airways booking using an Amex Platinum card, you 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

ITA Airways took over Italy’s beleaguered former flag carrier Alitalia back in 2021.

Since then, the airline has been slowly but surely building its global network including the followed 7 U.S. cities:

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

As ITA Airways is also part of the SkyTeam alliance, Delta frequent flyers will earn miles and those all-important Medallion status-earning MQMs.

Final Thoughts

If you’re planning a trip to Italy, then this Amex Offer has come just at the right time.

Booking a flight with ITA Airways can earn you a decent chunk of Membership Rewards points that you can put towards your next trip!

Grazie mille, Amex.
