Emirates Offers Up To $1000 Discount If Flight is Paid By Any American Express Card From U.S. Gateways

Emirates and American Express have published a promotion where customers can save up to US$1000 per ticket (depending on class of service) from any of Emirates U.S. gateways.

All American Express cards are eligible for this promotional discount which ranges from $50 for Economy Class to $1000 for First Class tickets.

The discount for Economy tickets is somewhat small but can be worthwhile for Business and First Class bookings.

You can access Emirates here.

Save on qualifying round-trip flights with Emirates after you book and pay with any American Express® Card from November 4, 2019 through December 31, 2019 for travel between November 5, 2019 and April 30, 2020. Visit www.emirates.com/us/usamex and use the promotion code USAMX19.
Depart from any Emirates gateway in the U.S., travel to the Emirates destination of your choice, and receive:

• $50 off Economy Class fares
$300 off Business Class fares
$1,000 off First Class fares

This offer has to be redeemed on Emirates website and is only valid from Emirates U.S. gateways. The discount is not applicable on Business Saver class which is a big disadvantage.

It’s also recommended to check if there are any further Amex offers available on the card which is visible in the online account and might be good for additional discounts or points.


Sometimes there are attractive First Class fares on Emirates ex U.S. and being able to knock another $1000 off that fare would definitely be a great deal.

If you already hold an American Express Platinum Card you might also want to call up and ask for the International Airline Program premium class fares to have a comparison. Often their fares are very competitive.
