Footnotes

1. Fixed Points Redemption Option:

Account must be in good standing. The Fixed Points Redemption Option is only available on select American Express Cards for eligible flights booked between February 16, 2016 and May 31, 2016 online at americanexpress.ca/travel. An eligible flight is an economy round-trip ticket on select routes.

To be eligible and be presented with this redemption option, you must have sufficient Membership Rewards points (“points”) at the time of booking. When booking for multiple travellers on the same itinerary, you must have enough points to cover all travellers.

Under the Fixed Points Redemption Option, a fixed number of points covers the base ticket price of eligible flights up to the applicable maximum base ticket price. The table below includes the fixed number of points with the corresponding applicable maximum base ticket price required per category.

Route Category Points Required Maximum Base Ticket Price
North America 20,000 $300
35,000 $550
40,000 $700
Sun Destinations 50,000 $800
European Hotspots 50,000 $800
Explore the Globe 100,000 $2,000

The base ticket price excludes taxes, fees and carrier surcharges. You will be charged for these additional costs and any dollar amount that exceeds the applicable maximum base ticket price. If the base ticket price for an eligible flight is below the applicable maximum base ticket price, the difference: (i) cannot be used to cover taxes, fees or carrier surcharges; (ii) will not be credited to your Card account; and (iii) will not be applied to cover additional costs associated with changes or cancellations. The full cost of the flight, including taxes, fees and carrier surcharges will be charged to your Card upon booking. Within 3-10 business days from the date of booking, you will receive a statement credit for the base ticket price up to the applicable maximum base ticket price.

Example 1:

A select route requires a redemption of 40,000 points and the maximum base ticket price is $700. If an eligible flight for this route has a base ticket price of $650 plus $100 in taxes, fees and carrier surcharges (total cost of flight amounts to $750), then you will be required to redeem 40,000 points and will be charged $750; you will then receive a statement credit for $650 (the base ticket price).

If you decide to change this booking reservation for a new eligible flight with a higher base ticket price (such as $675), then in addition to all other applicable charges, you will also be required to pay an additional $25 (the difference between $650 and $675) even though the new base ticket price is below the $700 maximum base ticket price.

Example 2:

A select route requires a redemption of 40,000 points and the maximum base ticket price is $700. If an eligible flight for this route has a base ticket price of $750 plus $100 in taxes, fees and carrier surcharges (total cost of flight amounts to $850), then you will be required to redeem 40,000 points and will be charged $850; you will then receive a statement credit for $700 (the maximum base ticket price).

You are responsible for any additional charges as a result of any changes or cancellations to your booking. Subject to an airline’s policy, a change or cancellation may result in a credit to your Card account and/or a credit with the respective airline. In neither case will the points you redeemed for this flight be returned to you. Flight availability and prices of flights are subject to availability and set by the airlines. Eligible routes are based on the International Air Transport Association airport code classification.

These terms and conditions are also subject to the American Express® Membership Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.
