Is anyone across the latest American Express change: 'More ways to use your 2021 Complimentary Flight Benefit' for the AmEx Velocity card?

American Express has just sent an email out to holders of the AmEx Velocity card. But several things are unclear…

  • Is this offer restricted to just the four listed options (VA, V Wines, V Rewards Store, V Wine Store Lathwaites), or to every option in the Rewards Store?
  • Does this totally replace the free flight, or do members still have 8 weeks to choose the free flight?
  • Can members book the free flight for this year, and then postpone it til next year?
  • Is this offer a good deal?
