Dutch / French
Why should I get a Brussels Airlines credit card?
- Earn Miles & More miles for every euro you spend (super markets, online purchases, fuel stations, restaurants, … 1.5 mile per euro spend)
- Your Miles & More miles never expire as long as you use the card at least once a month
- Extensive purchase & travel insurances (details NL / FR )
(e.g. I got 200€ of purchases refunded in June 2021 when my luggage was delayed)
- Additional yearly bonus of 10.000 award miles when you spend 20K euro with the card
- 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?
The first 3 months the card is free. After the free period the card costs:
- Brussels Airlines Premium Amex card: 12.50€ 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.
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)

Hi Bart. I was wondering what the advantage was for getting the Premium over the Preferred American Express card (12.5€/month vs 10€/month), apart from the miles, and if you had a referral link for the Preferred.
Hi Mar, apart from the miles (5000 sign-up bonus versus 20000 and 1.25 miles per euro versus 1.5 miles per euro) there are no significant differences between both cards I’m aware of. I would recommend the Premium card as it’s only 2.5€ extra per month but comes with 15.000 more miles at sign-up and earns more miles per euro spend. Value of 15K miles is ~150€.
Thanks for sharing Bart!
However, it seems to me you need to spend € 1500 during the first 3 months: “U ontvangt tijdelijk 20.000 awardmijlen cadeau indien u minimaal € 1.500 besteedt in de eerste 3 maanden na goedkeuring van uw aanvraag.”
Thanks for your feedback Aaron. On which page did you see that statement? The general page indicates “Welkomstbonus van 10.000 Award Miles wanneer een totaal van van minstens 500€ is uitgegeven met de kaart binnen de 3 maanden.”
Bij “Gelieve te lezen voor u begint”: “Amex Friends voorwaarden :
U bent de afgelopen 12 maanden geen (extra) kaarthouder geweest bij American Express.
U ontvangt nu tijdelijk 3 maanden gratis, daarna betaalt u € 12,5/maand
U ontvangt tijdelijk 20.000 awardmijlen cadeau indien u minimaal € 1.500 besteedt in de eerste 3 maanden na goedkeuring van uw aanvraag.”
So it’s not clear what the actual promotion is…
Thanks for the details. I’ll check with AlphaCard contact which statement is correct: spend €500 or spend €1500 with the card in the first 3 months.
The 20K bonus offer now indicates “spend €1500 in the first 3 months” so updated blogpost.
20K miles have been posted to my account, so thanks for sharing!
Great, thanks for your feedback Aaron!
