Why should I get a Brussels Airlines credit card?
- Earn Miles & More miles for every euro you spend (super market, IKEA, online purchases, fuel stations, restaurants, …)
- Your Miles & More miles never expire as long as you use the card once a month
- Extensive purchase & travel insurances (details NL / FR )
- Additional yearly bonus of 5.000 or 10.000 award miles
- Use your Miles & More miles for free flights & upgrades. e.g. Business Class roundtrip flight to USA for 55.000 miles (Mileage Bargains)
How much does the Amex card cost?
If your request the card before the end of 2019, the first 3 months the card is free. After the first 3 months the card costs:
- Brussels Airlines Premium Amex card: 12.50€ per month
- Brussels Airlines Preferred Amex card: 10€ per month
You can cancel the card at any time. Just keep in mind Miles & More miles expire 3 years after you have earned them if you don’t have the Brussels Airlines American Express card.
Which card should I request, Premium or Preferred?
The Premium card. The sign-up bonus (16.000) is much higher, the miles per euro spend (1.5) are higher, yearly bonus is higher (10.000) and the cost is only 30€ more per year. The only reason to request the Preferred card would be your annual income. The Premium card requires a minimum yearly gross income of 37.500€, the Preferred card requires a yearly gross income of 25.000€ or higher.
What are the pitfalls?
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. (0% conversion fee and 200€/month of free ATM withdrawals in non-euro countries)
