Million Mile Secrets reader, Kim, tweeted:
Any advice on how to pick the best airline for The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN to get 50% points back with Pay With Points?
Fantastic question, Kim!
Using AMEX Pay With Points with the AMEX Business Platinum card is a flexible way to book flights without blackout dates. And you’ll get 50% of your points back for coach tickets booked with Pay With Points. But only on your selected airline.
Plus, the AMEX Business Platinum $200 statement credit for airline incidentals only applies to your selected airline. So this can impact your decision, too.

JetBlue offers a terrific Business Class called Mint. You get lie-flat seats, tasty food, and terrific amenities. And depending on the Mint seat you choose, you can even get an individual suite with extra privacy.
Mint is only available on select JetBlue routes. But there are lots of new Mint routes planned!
The challenge is getting a Mint seat using points. Unless there’s a seat sale, it’s usually NOT a good deal to redeem JetBlue points for a seat in Mint Business Class.
But now you can use AMEX Membership Rewards points linked to The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN card to get 50% of your points back when you book JetBlue Mint Business Class tickets. This can be a good deal!
Using the AMEX Business Platinum 50% Points Back Perk With Pay With Points Can Be a Great Way to Book a Comfortable JetBlue Mint Business Class Ticket!
