Alitalia American Express by First BankCard - 10000 miles after first purchase.

https://www.firstbankcard.com/alital...personal.fhtml

10K after first purchase, 5K annually if you spend $20000 each year

annual fee waived for first year.

No churning restriction is listed in the offer term.

... definitely a card flying under radar.

Problem is Amex MRs transfer 1:1 to Alitalia and there are far too many Amex products out there with 50K plus signup bonuses.

Something to keep in mind before you invest in AZ too heavily is that the entire program (not just miles) expire every 5 years due to some quirky Italian law.

Yea.. I noticed that the next expiration is coming up in 6/30/2015. I was about to transfer miles to AZ, then I noticed the current award chart will expire at the end of June.... was thinking about some miles to AZ, then changed my mind due to upcoming program change.

I am curious if the changes on july 1st will be improvement or devaluation on award redemption.

they have some pretty nice redemption value, such as 80K for business class to Europe roundtrip, only 40K for US domestic/canada on Delta and 60K to Hawaii on Delta, etc...
