I don't see a problem with starting a new thread for a new year. Additionally, since many of the deals are points, I think the thread location here is more than fine.

Is there a comprehensive list somewhere of the deals that were offered last year? The thread from 2011 has mentions of some deals, but I'm wondering if there's a place to see everything they had a year ago?

Last year, was anyone able to use a non-USA based Amex? I have Visa and MC based in USA but my Amex is Australian.

+1 for me, I read about someone having problems with the address validation but have heard of workaround on the AA site of succesfully using a foreign CC even though data entry forces a US state and country code so wondering if they will work here.

Good to see this back. You can trick it into accepting some foreign Amex cards, I have bought before.

Is an American Express card required for a purchase since this promo is put on by American Express. Or will they accept other cards. I have 5 AMEX myself - no worries there but I'm inquiring for my readers. Like to write on this promo since it is seem to be a big buzz last year.
Thanks!

Not required, but it saves 10%.
