Earn up to 10,000 Bonus Amex Membership Rewards Points for Fixed Points Travel Program bookings

American Express is really making a big push for their Fixed Points Travel Program. For this month only if you make Fixeds Point Travel program bookings you can earn bonus miles (essentially a rebate) for doing so. The bonuses are as follows:

I'm not going to go into huge details of the Fixed Point Travel Program here as we have a whole other post on that which you can read here. Just know that the Fixed Point Travel Program is essentially a reward chart based redemption system like your traditional frequent flyer programs:

The portfolio of Membership Rewards’ earning cards provide various earning options, from 1 point per dollar spent to up to 5 points per dollar, which means you can fly for as little as $3,000 in spending depending on what card you have. Add in this discount and that drops to only $2,000 in spending to get the round trip popular short haul routes! This is assuming all that spend is made on the American Express Cobalt Card in the Eats & Drinks category that earns 5 points per dollar.

Also note as that these are actual revenue tickets for flights on whatever airline(s) you book. They are not your typical award tickets seen from your traditional frequent flyer programs. What does that mean? It means, in most cases, you'll earn frequent flyer miles for these flights with the respective program of your choice.

This offer is valid for bookings made until March 31 with no actual travel date restrictions other than what the airlines put on their tickets. To take advantage of this please see Amex's Fixed Point Travel Program page.

Terms and conditions of this offer:
1. You can redeem a fixed number of points to cover the base ticket price of eligible flights up to the applicable maximum base ticket price. The base ticket price (often referred to by airlines as the base fare) excludes taxes, fees and carrier surcharges. You will be charged for these additional costs and any dollar amount that exceeds the applicable maximum base ticket price. The Fixed Points Travel Program applies to airfares offered through American Express Travel Services Canada or on americanexpress.ca/travel. When you redeem points for an eligible flight, the full cost of the flight, including taxes, fees and carrier surcharges will be charged to your Card upon booking. Within 5-10 business days from the date of booking, you will receive a statement credit for the base ticket price up to the applicable maximum base ticket price. If your statement monthly cycle cut date falls between the date the transaction is recorded on your statement and the date the statement credit is processed, you will be responsible for paying your monthly statement in full. The statement credit will be applied against your next statement. Full terms and conditions for the Fixed Points Travel Program can be found at americanexpress.ca/fixedpointstravel.

2. This offer is only available to Basic American Express Consumer and Small Business Cardmembers enrolled in the Membership Rewards Program. Offer starts on March 1, 2018 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on March 31, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. ET and is valid only for new bookings made using a fixed number of Membership Rewards points (“points”) to cover the base ticket price of flights up to the applicable maximum base ticket price under the Fixed Points Travel Program. When you redeem 15,000 to 50,000 points towards the base ticket price of flights using the Fixed Points Travel Program, you will earn 5,000 bonus points. When you redeem 60,000 or more points towards the base ticket price of flights using the Fixed Points Travel Program, you will earn 10,000 bonus points. Only the fixed number of points redeemed towards the base ticket price using the Fixed Points Travel Program count towards the point thresholds. Points redeemed to cover the difference between the base ticket price and the applicable maximum base ticket price do not qualify for the offer. Points redeemed towards taxes, fees and surcharges are excluded. Total points required for a flight must be redeemed at the time of booking. Bonus points may take up to 6 weeks to be credited to the account. If an eligible flight booking is cancelled prior to the travel date, the bonus points credited will be reversed. Account must be active and in good standing. Limit of one offer per transaction during the offer period.
