French AMEX cards: 50 off every 300 spent on Air France/KLM flights-up to 10 times

Just received this offer on my Blue American Express card (not cobranded with Flying Blue), so it should be available for every other cards.

You can get a maximum of 500 for 3000 spent. Valid for transactions before the 2 of October. Maybe this one is also valid for NL cards.

Interesting fact is that you can request a voucher even if your flight is not canceled so it can be worth it using this offer to buy vouchers with a nice discount for further trips with AF-KLM (and even 15% more if your flight is canceled...).

Yes, it is valid for the FB Amex card, at least the French one. I subscribed to the offer yesterday. I didn’t receive any direct communication about it, but saw an announcement in AF app.

This is standard with pretty much all Amex offers. I don't think that I have ever been in the situation of an offer running out because of excessive demand. I assume that, if it did, attempts to register for the offer beyond that point would be unsuccessful so you would know that way.

At the same time in NL, the generous offer is a one-time 5 EUR credit if you spend 10 EUR or more at Dirk (a supermarket chain).

If my memory is correct , following an agreement between the 2 countries , the airport has two sectors , one for french and one for swiss . The airfrance flights are handled in the french part which means it is still france and therefore schengen

Yes, but AF treats normally treats flights with a "BSL" origin as Switzerland-originating and flights with a "MLH" origin as France-originating for FB purposes even if it is in fact the same airport, hence why it was far from obvious that BSL-originating flights would be regarded as France-originating for the purposes of the FB Amex offer.
