El Al is offering discounted coach and business class award tickets to select cities that can be found in Hebrew here.

El Al offers 2 award charts, one for executives and one for regular members. Luckily it’s very easy to become an executive. A transfer of just 5,000 AMEX points from the US AMEX Membership Rewards program to El Al’s Matmid program will earn you executive status for a year. Points transfer instantly from AMEX to El Al, though it takes about a day after the transfer for the executive status to take effect on your El Al Matmid account. Note that transferred points expire after 36 months and can’t be extended with activity.

-These awards must be booked by 11/30.

-Outbound travel is valid between North America and Tel Aviv from 10/20/17-3/13/18. Return travel can be on any date.
