Quick Thoughts

This type of Delta Amex Offer comes around fairly frequently, but unfortunately it’s always highly targeted. If you were lucky enough to get it, it’s a good offer seeing as it can save you up to 20%, but its usefulness will depend on whether you need to book travel with Delta right now.

Having said that, it should be possible to lock in the discount even if you don’t have any immediate travel plans. That’s because even though the terms exclude gift card purchases, it’s always been possible to trigger the statement credit when buying a gift card and I’ve seen data points indicating that this method is working with this latest offer.

You have to be careful with gift card purchases as there are a couple of scenarios where it doesn’t work. First, you have to buy them directly from Delta rather than the CashStar site which also sells them – this is the page you need to buy them from.

Secondly, you need to buy them on desktop rather than a mobile device because for some reason gift card purchases on your phone code differently than purchases made on your computer. That different coding affects the offer being tracked and is presumably why there’s the gift card exclusion.

If you’re targeted for this offer, it’d be best to enroll in it ASAP seeing as enrollment is limited and so the offer could disappear before March 31 if you’ve not loaded it to one of your cards.

Both P1 and P2 have this on Blue Business Plus, or whatever the current Blue no-AF business card is called.

I know for nothing about DL. From the site, it looks as though, for a single ticket, there is no way to split tender (use two cards, not to mention two cards in two different names).

Is the play here thus to buy a $200 gift card by, say, P2, for P1, and then use $200 GC plus residual (> $200) on P1’s card?

Okay, figured this one out. Since for this trip, RT = OW + OW, just use a different card for each OW leg.


Stephen. This is the best straighforward, helpful review of this on the internet. I appreciate you putting the info out there if you can find it elsewhere. Gives me the go to play find all the relevant datapoints. Thanks for your site and hard work.


Slightly off topic but possibly of interest to people reading about Delta offers–it looks like there are some great Skymiles deals right now. Out of Seattle, I found tickets at 2K BE (2500 for regular economy) to multiple locations (LAS, PHX, LAX, etc). There is great availability until at least May but even in the summer. I don’t ever remember award tickets for just 2k miles.

not on my cards …..


Sad – I went 0 for 4


Between mine & the others I manage, its 0 for 10. The data points I have seen online have mostly been for Amex branded business cards. I have received the last few Delta offers (usually on my Gold card).


I’ve got it on SimplyBusiness cash card but none on other business or personal cards and I have just about every card types Amex offers.


Not a single data point on the type of AmEx cards this offer is showing up on?
