Flying Blue, the loyalty program of Air France and KLM, offers a number of promotional awards on the first day of each month. The typical discount is around 20-25%, but they can be as deep as 50%. Promo Awards are mostly for economy flights, but a few awards in business class are usually available.

This means, you can fly to Europe for as low as 12,500 miles each way, or 25,000 miles round-trip per person, instead of the normal 50,000 miles. I found Houston to Amsterdam on KLM for 12,250 miles plus $67.94 for taxes and fees.a screenshot of a website

It gets even lower, as I found below – Washington D.C. to Brussels connecting through Amsterdam is just 12,000 miles plus $81.46 for taxes and fees.
