  1. I will be booking 4 flights to Europe using FlyingBlue points, and the taxes and fees are over $1000 total. Do you think this would qualify?
    Thank you.

  2. Carolina Griffiths

    Can I buy a ticket through the Air France but to fly on KLM?

  3. Can I register and buy before April 17, but fly in August?

  4. Regarding what you said, “And remember, if you have have multiple AMEX cards, it’s possible to get this offer more than once.” Are you sure about this? Are you assuming the multiple cards are not in the same online AmericanExpress.com account? Or you do a second one via Amex Sync (if it was even on there)? I ask, because I saw this in the fine print: “EARNING POINTS: Limit 1 enrolled Card per American Express Card online account and limit of 20000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card.”

  5. Done. Just booked a trip to Barcelona for my wife and I around thanksgiving. JFK-BCN non-stop on Delta for $514 each. Used Amex Platinum, so I should get 25,000+ MR points and about 3,000 Skydongs for each of us for good measure!
