You can earn this bonus once. So if you have earned it before, even as a Premier Rewards Card owner, you most likely won’t qualify to earn this welcome offer a second time.

The bonus is worth $600 in award flights booked on AmexTravel.com. You can also transfer your Membership Rewards points (often on a 1:1 basis) to airline and hotel partners including Delta, British Airways, Singapore Airlines, and Emirates. Point transfers usually make each point worth at least 1 cent each (which is their standard redemption value).

Terms apply.
