Australia on your mind? If so, a new American Express offer
could make getting there a little easier. Select cardholders are
seeing an offer for $150 back after spending $700 or more with
Qantas, Australia’s flag carrier and Oneworld alliance
Miler is reporting a similar offer for $250 after spending
$1,200 or more and
Running With Miles says a reader reports seeing an offer for
15,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $700 with the
airline. If you have the offer to earn Membership Rewards, that’s
the best deal considering TPG values MR
points at 2 cents each, or $300 for the 15,000 points.
costs $140 to upgrade to an extra legroom seat on Qantas’ Los
Angeles to Sydney flight.
It’s important to note that all flights must originate in the
United States and be purchased in US dollars through Qantas’ US website. While
we’ve seen plenty of
sales to Australia for flights less than$600 round-trip, it

Qantas operates a number of flights to US cities, including San
Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Dallas. TPG reviews have given
economy product good reviews.

Like other Amex
Offers, this one is targeted, so it’s possible your card
won’t be eligible for the promotion. To take advantage of the
deal, you’ll need to add the offer to your card and make a
qualifying transaction by June 30. We’ve seen a few other solid
Amex Offers recently, like a
$40 statement credit after spending $200 at Marriott Hotels or
slew of deals to save on Hilton stays.
To add the offer to your card, log in to your American Express
account and scroll down to the “Amex Offers and Benefits”
section (you may need to click “Load More” to see the offer).
Only TPG Points and Miles Editor Nick Ewen received the offer,
which appeared on both The
Platinum® Card from American Express and
Hilton Honors American Express Ascend Card.
