In the past we’ve sometimes seen Amex Offers deals for Delta flights. The latest such offer has just been introduced, but with a twist.
Save $100 on a Delta Air Lines flight purchase
A new targeted Amex Offers deal has just been rolled out, which offers a $100 statement credit when you spend $400+ on a Delta Air Lines flight that’s booked through AmexTravel.com. This is valid through August 31, 2021.
That’s the equivalent of up to 25% back on a Delta flight, which is awesome. In the past we’ve seen Amex Offers deals where you can save when booking Delta flights directly, while here you’re being incentivized to book through Amex Travel. You can expect that Amex Travel generally has the same pricing as Delta directly.
There are some basic conditions of this offer worth being aware of:
- You need to spend $400, but it can be in multiple transactions
- The flight must be operated by Delta, and must be booked through AmexTravel.com
- You must book by August 31, 2021, though there’s no need to actually travel by then
- This promotion includes Delta operated flights purchased as part of the International Airline Program or a flight + hotel package on AmexTravel.com
This offer is exclusively on the Amex Platinum
The terms indicate that this offer is exclusively available on the Amex Platinum Card, including the personal and business versions. That’s not to say that all Amex Platinum accounts will be targeted, but rather if an account will be targeted, it’ll be an Amex Platinum.
That works out well, since the Amex Platinum Card offers 5x points on airfare purchased with Amex Travel. Not only can you receive a $100 statement credit, but you can also earn lots of points. I value Membership Rewards points at 1.7 cents each, so to me that’s the equivalent of an 8.5% return on spending right there.
When you add up both the $100 statement credit and 5x points, you’re potentially looking at getting around $134 worth of value on $400 in spending, which is well over 30% back.
I continue to be so impressed by how much value Amex Offers adds to Amex cards, as in many cases these offers alone more than justify the annual fees on cards.
There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal on the Platinum Card for a $100 statement credit when you spend $400+ with Amex Travel for a Delta flight. This is an excellent deal, as it’s the equivalent of up to 25% back. When you consider that the card also earns 5x points on airfare purchases through Amex Travel, that makes this offer even more rewarding.
If you have any upcoming travel to plan, be sure to check your Amex account to see if you’re eligible for this offer.
