Sweden, it’s back! Once or twice a year, American Express offers a 25% bonus if you sign up for any of their credit cards. If you already have an American Express card, you can sign-up for another one and earn the additional bonus as well. This bonus expires on March 14. Here is the breakdown of the deals:

For unlimited lounge access: Platinum Card with 250,000 points sign-up bonus. (normal bonus is 200,000)

Best for the price: Gold Card with 125,000 points sign-up bonus. (normal bonus is 100,000)

Which card should you choose?

Personally, I recommend a Membership Rewards earning card, so either the Gold card or the Platinum card. These points can be transferred to several different airlines so it gives you more flexibility. If you spend more than 150,000kr on credit cards per year, I recommend either the SAS Elite or SAS Premium depending on what perks you want since you’ll get a 2-for-1 ticket voucher.

How far will the points get you?

Here are two examples:

Gothenburg/Stockholm to Doha in Qatar Business Class

Spend as little as 55,000kr on your American Express Platinum card and you already have enough points with the sign-up bonus for a free one-way ticket.

Oslo to Svalbard roundtrip for two people

Explore for midnight sun in Svalbard for just 10,000 Eurobonus points roundtrip from Oslo per person. If you get the SAS Elite card, you can bring a friend with just the sign-up bonus.
