There are at least two new targeted Amex Offers for Delta Airlines that are appearing on some American Express cards today. The first offers $100 back when you spend a minimum of $350 and the second offers $75 back on a minimum spend of $200. I found them on both business and personal cards. Both offers allow you to meet the required spend in more than one transaction.
Delta usually has a variety of Amex offers that feature different configurations of spend/cashback, so there may be even more out there.
- Get a one-time $100 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Card to spend a minimum of $350 in one or more purchases directly with Delta Air Lines by 9/30/2022. Flight must originate in the U.S. and purchase must be in USD.
- Get a one-time $75 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Card to spend a minimum of $200 in one or more purchases directly with Delta Air Lines by 9/30/2022. Flight must originate in the U.S. and purchase must be in USD.
- Offer valid for purchases made directly with Delta Air Lines through U.S. delta.com, via Fly Delta U.S. App, and U.S. reservation 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 delta.com, (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.
These are fairly consistent with recent Amex offers that we’ve seen from Delta, offering between 28-38% back on spend. They’re fairly easy to hit for anyone with regular Delta spend, as you can reach the minimum spend in more than one transaction.
Update: It looks like Delta has recently updated their website and now all gift card purchases appear to be redirected to Cashstar pages, making it impossible to trigger the Amex Offer via a gift card purchase. We have no clue if this is temporary or permanent. But, in the short term, the only way to trigger the Amex Offer for credit would be to buy a ticket, wait 24 hours, and then cancel it for the credit. This is less flexible than a gift card though, as it will have an expiry. (h/t: reader Satellite)
If you don’t need to book any actual Delta flights before the end of September, you can buy Delta gift cards to take advantage of the offer. Just mind your P’s and Q’s when you do it. There are three different ways to buy Delta gift cards – directly from Delta’s website and from two separate CashStar pages. In order to trigger the statement credit, 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 gift cards on desktop or mobile, to make sure you get the statement credit, it’s best to buy on desktop.
Again, Delta often has numerous iterations of these Amex offers, so leave a note in the comments if you find anything outside of $350/$100 or $200/$75.
