    Anyone know if you can use the coupon code and pay with a Visa? Or will it be declined or something since it specifies AMEX.

      Looks like you can pay anyway that you like. The terms mention payments by PayPal are accepted.
      When you get to the checkout, you can select any normally available payment method.

      •  

        The site does allow you to pay with whichever method you prefer. Indeed the T&C do not specifically require payment with an eligible AMEX card; they only require you to be holder of one. How (and if) they may check this I don't know. I can't see them asking you to show your AMEX card before checking in? :-)

    I got an email yesterday teasing an offer was coming today. This must be that offer. Only 10% off fares I would normally purchase so not much use to me. Also it looks like you don’t even have to be an Amex customer to get the offer, and you can pay anyway you want it seems.

    Never worked as always. Probably block out period in dec-Jan19 dates. Tried to put in the code and it did not apply any discount. bummmmer !!

    Discount is applied to the base fare, taxes and airline surcharges and does not apply to any other fees or charges.

    At least it isn't limited to the base fare, excluding taxes from discounts is becoming an unfortunate trend (esp for international).

  •  

    It may work out to be cheaper on some days, but on the day we want to fly Virgin discounted price is $100 more than Qantas without discount.

    Didn't do anything for me, international long haul, outbound in November, return in December.
