Delta Amex Offer: Spend $300 & Get $125 Back (Targeted)


A few weeks ago there was a targeted Delta Amex Offer that showed up on some people’s cards. Something strange subsequently happened whereby Amex changed the expiry date from December 31 to October 14 – the day the offer first appeared.

As a result, we didn’t publish about the offer at the time because it disappeared from people’s cards, but it subsequently reappeared and so we wanted to highlight that so you don’t miss out if you were targeted.

The Deal

  • Spend $300 in one or more transactions with Delta & get $125 back with a targeted Amex Offer.

Key Terms

  • Expires December 31, 2021.
  • Offer valid for purchases made directly with Delta Air Lines through U.S., via Fly Delta U.S. App, and U.S. Delta Reservations telephone line.
  • Flights must originate in the U.S., including U.S. territories, and purchases must be in U.S. dollars to qualify.
  • Offer valid only for purchases where Delta Air Lines is the merchant of record, such as airfare, fare upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, standby fees, and Delta Sky Club memberships.
  • Excludes the following: (i) purchases in-person at the airport where Delta is not the merchant of record, lounges, and sales offices, (ii) all purchases on-board flights including food, beverage, and WiFi, (iii) stand alone hotel bookings and car rentals through, (iv) purchases through third parties or affiliated agents, and (v) Delta Vacations, Delta Dive, Delta Cargo, On Demand Charter services, Delta Flight Museum, SkyMiles Marketplace purchases, SkyMiles Experiences, SkyMiles Cruises, Delta Meeting Network, (vi) travel insurance/trip protection, gift card purchases, and charitable donations.


Quick Thoughts

Seeing as this offer has been around for a few weeks (other than a 1-2 day period where it disappeared), there’s a good chance you’ve already come across it if you were targeted.

It’s the most generous Delta Amex Offer that I can remember seeing because it gives you a return of 41.67% when spending exactly $300. That’s a fantastic offer, particularly with it being valid on one or more transactions.

If you don’t need to book any Delta flights before the end of the year but want to lock in the value, you can buy Delta gift cards to take advantage of the offer. You have to ensure you do that in the right way though because doing it the wrong way will mean you won’t get the $125 statement credit.

There are three different places that Delta sells gift cards – one directly on their website and two separate CashStar pages. You need to buy directly from Delta rather than CashStar, so this is the page you need to buy them from.

For some reason payments seem to be processed differently depending on if you buy on desktop or mobile, so it’s best to buy on desktop as mobile purchases might not trigger the statement credit.

Both my wife and I were lucky enough to be targeted for this offer when it came out on October 14. We both bought a $300 Delta eGift card using the method described above and both received our $125 statement credits a few days later.

Hi Stephen, do you know if this will stack with the Plat airline credit? For example, if I pay for a $250 flight using a $50 GC + the card to trigger the $200 airline credit, will they count that $200 towards the $300 spend such that I would just need to top off the Amex Offer with a $100 GC purchase?


Also, do you know if multiple GCs will trigger the offer? More flexible to have a few smaller denominations.


Delta now offers free standard (3-4 day) shipping on physical GCs, through Dec 16.

They’re also offering a Limited Edition $50 Gift Card — “Get a bonus $50 Delta Gift Card made from the aluminum of a retired DC-9 aircraft when you purchase $500 or more in Delta Gift Cards.” Works out to ~32% off, which isn’t as good as the original $125 off $300gc (~42% off), but still a decent deal if you’re looking for some “limited edition” bling.


Anyone tried booking and canceling within 24 hours and seeing if the credit is retained?


You said this will work multiple times. So, I can buy multiple flights and get the discount?


If I have multiple $300+ flights, it just does 1 refund, right?
