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.
