You can save $180 if you spend at least $1,200 on a British Airways flight thanks to a new Amex Offer that’s been released to select cardmembers.

You’ll want to check your account(s) to see if you’re targeted for this Amex Offer, as it can provide a great deal of savings on your next flight purchase.

Here’s what you need to know.

British Airways Amex Offer — The Details

If you are targeted for this offer, you’ll save $180 on purchases of $1,200 or more with British Airways.

Fortunately, all $1,200 doesn’t need to be spent in a single transaction. You can rack up $1,200 or more in multiple transactions and still be eligible for the savings.

It’s not uncommon to see round-trip business class fares between the U.S. and Europe for around $2,000, so if you are targeted for this offer, the discount can make splurging for a business class ticket even more enticing.

Hot Tip:

This offer is stackable with other promotions, so if you have additional discounts with British Airways, you can use those so long as your final purchase total exceeds $1,200.

There are a few things you should note about this offer:

  • The fare you purchase must be denominated in U.S. dollars.
  • You need to book your trip directly through British Airways; it can’t be through a partner airline’s website, a travel agency, or some other means.
  • Your trip needs to start in the U.S. Keep in mind that British Airways partners with American Airlines, so even if the first leg of your journey is an American Airlines flight taking you to your British Airways flight, that’s O.K., so long as the entire trip is purchased through British Airways.
  • Your trip needs to be purchased by June 23, 2024. Your travel can occur any time after this (generally, the maximum allowed is 11 months past the purchase date).

What Are Amex Offers?

Amex Offers provide savings in the form of statement credits or opportunities to earn bonus Membership Rewards points at various merchants.

Offers can appear on 1 or more cards, and you can check your eligibility through Amex’s mobile app (iOS, Android). Not every card will be targeted, and offers like this tend to be curated for American Express’ premium card offerings.

Final Thoughts

British Airways offers a great product and plenty of flights from the U.S. across the pond, so if you need to head to Europe, be sure to check out your American Express cards to see if you were targeted for this savings. Saving $180 on $1,200 spent is a great deal as airfare isn’t frequently discounted!
