If you have any Delta Amex card-related benefits due to be expiring by May 31, 2021, Delta has announced that their expiry dates will be extended through June 30, 2022, thereby giving you more than an extra year to use them.
You can find the full announcement here. Here’s a quick roundup of which benefits are being extended:
Delta Amex Gold $100 Flight Credit
You can earn this benefit when spending $10,000 on your Delta Gold card in a calendar year. If you earned the flight credit between January 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021, its expiry date will now be June 30, 2022.
Delta Amex Platinum & Reserve Companion Certificates
These companion certificates are earned on Delta’s Platinum and Reserve credit cards each year when renewing your card. If your companion certificate(s) were due to expire on March 31, 2021 or will be issued from April 1 to May 31, 2021, their expiration dates will be extended to June 30, 2022 which is the date by which you have to both book by and fly by.
Delta Amex Reserve Sky Club One-Time Guest Passes
In addition to offering the primary cardholder Sky Club access, Delta Reserve cardholders receive two one-time Sky Club guest passes each year. If you had any of those passes issued between January 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021 and hadn’t had an opportunity to use them yet, Delta is extending their expiry dates to June 30, 2022.
The expiration dates are already being updated, but if you don’t see that reflected in your account yet then it’s likely that the extensions are still in the process of being rolled out and so should be updated shortly.
Delta had already extended their expiration dates through December 31, 2021, so this is an extension of an additional six months. This is a welcome update from Delta as it means you now have 15 months from today to take advantage of these card benefits. That will hopefully give you enough time to make use of them even if you don’t have any immediate plans to fly with Delta.
