Save $ 250 on Air France and KLM flights
This offer can be a great incentive to book with Air France or KLM for any of your upcoming travel plans in Europe in 2022 and 2023.
Air France operates flights from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Recently, Quebec City Airlines has become the fourth Canadian destination. Meanwhile, KLM counts Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton among its Canadian destinations.
Take the new Quebec City-Paris route, for example. A round-trip economy flight from Quebec to Paris on an Air France flight will cost only $ 1,100. By booking this flight, you can unlock $ 250 statement in just one purchase.
If you often travel to Europe and prefer to fly in business class instead of economy, look for cheap round-trip business class fares from Europe to North America.
You will use the west leg as the return trip for your first trip and the east leg as the outbound for the next trip.
Historically, we have often seen transatlantic airlines (including Air France and KLM) offering very affordable business class flights from Europe, often between $ 1,500-2,000 (CAD) for round-trip.
By stacking up with the Amex offer, you will now be able to save another $ 250. (Agreements in this range are rarely seen outside of North America.)
Lastly, keep in mind that if you want to redeem points for your flight instead of paying cash, you can save a good portion with this Amex offer.
Because the Air France / KLM Flying Blue redemption tax and fio credit will be calculated. With Flying Blue, taxes and fees can be relatively high, sometimes in the region of $ 300 per person per route for more long-haul airlines.
In the example above, if you redeem two Flying Blue Miles for two passengers on a Bora Bora round-trip in Business Class, the tax and fees will reach the $ 1,000 threshold and unlock $ 250 savings through this Amex offer.
In addition to the Flying Blue program offering a rotating promo prize on a monthly basis, it’s always worth combining it with this Amex offer to save tax if you book for multiple trips or multiple passengers.
Scotiabank American Express cardholders can also register
As we often see with these Amex offers, the offer is also available for primary and supplementary cardholders of Scotiabank Gold American Express Card, Scotiabank American Express Card, and Scotiabank Platinum American Express Card.
For Scotiabank cardholders, you can register through this link.
A new Amex offer allows eligible cardholders to earn a $ 250 statement credit after spending a minimum of $ 1,000 to purchase a growing flight with Air France / KLM.
Be sure to check all your cards to see if the promotion pops up, as not every American Express card is targeted for this offer. Those who have Scotiabank American Express products can register through the dedicated portal link to multiply your savings.
Remember that the registration cap is limited to the first 20,000 cardholders, so it is best to register as soon as possible, and then book your flight. August 31, 2022.
