I’m a little late to the game on this one, but this is a solid chance to get free $$$ if you’re looking to book a flight anytime soon. Just save the Amex sync offer, book a oneway or RT flight on VA (has to be through VA, NOT expedia, orbitz etc…) for at least $250, and you get $50 credited back on your Amex statement.
To save the offer, all you need to do is go to your Amex online portal, click on whatever card you want to check (you should check each card every month to see new deals), go down and click “Amex Offers For You” –> “Offers Available for Card -#####” –> Find the offer, and click “Save Offer” (JUST CLICK THEM ALL!!! Nothing to lose).
If you want to get REALLY tricky, I save all my offers to Evernote so when I’m out I can quickly check on my phone what offers I have for each card.
