Amex Offer Airline Savings 

These deals are my absolute favorite, because I get all the credit for the spend and if the offers is available on the Amex Platinum, Gold or Green Cards you also get bonus points. Currently there's a very generous offer for Delta whereby you spend $300 and get $120 back. In the past we've seen many valuable offers for airfare including Jetblue, Air France and Qantas. 

International Airline Program

Platinum Card and The Business Platinum Card Members get exclusive access to lower fares for for themselves and travel companions on over twenty participating airlines when booking premium economy or better international tickets through the International Airline Program.
