UPDATE FEBRUARY 2020: The 26,000 miles offer has now expired. However, you can still get the Brussels Airlines Premium American Express card with 16.000 Miles & More bonus miles!
American Express has a very attractive limited time offer: the Brussels Airlines Premium American Express card with 26.000 Miles & More bonus miles for signing up and spending €1500 in the first 3 months using the card. This offer is only valid till 30/04/2019. To receive a personalised sign-up link for this offer, please complete the form below.
Earning airline miles is not limited to flying, you can earn miles with almost anything these days. One of the easiest ways to earn extra miles is signing up for a credit card. You will receive 6000 miles for signing up for the Brussels Airlines Premium American Express card + an additional referral bonus of 6000 miles via my blog. After spending €1500 in the first 3 months using the card, you’ll receive another 14000 bonus miles. Additionally you’ll earn 1,5 miles per euro spent with the card. American Express also provides a yearly bonus of 10000 miles when you spend €20000 in one year. Miles of the Miles & More program can be used to book (and upgrade) flights of any Star Alliance carrier. My preferred way of using Miles & More miles is redeeming them on Lufthansa First Class flights.

The key to earning the maximum amount of miles is to pay as much as possible with your credit card. Pay all your bills and purchases (both online and offline) with your credit card, every euro counts! Shopping (including groceries), dining, gas, electronics, hotels, airline tickets, … almost everything! The yearly fee of the card is €150 but comes with a number of travel insurances & buyer protection.
What are the pitfalls?
- The annual fee of the Brussels Airlines American Express card is €150
- American Express cards have a high conversion fee (2,5%) for non-euro payments. Use your Brussels Airlines American Express cards for euro payments only. For non-euro payments, I recommend Revolut.
