In the past we’ve sometimes seen Amex Offers deals for Delta flights. The latest such offer has just been introduced, and it’s potentially a great deal.

Save $100-125 on a Delta purchase

A new targeted Amex Offers deal has just been rolled out, which offers either a $100 or $125 statement credit (there are two versions) when you spend $300+ on a Delta Air Lines flight. This is valid for purchases through December 31, 2021.

That’s the equivalent of up to 33-42% back on a Delta flight, which is awesome. There are some basic conditions to this offer that are worth being aware of:

  • You need to spend $300, but it can be in multiple transactions
  • If you make a flight purchase, the flight must be operated by Delta, and must be booked directly through Delta, whether on the website, app, or by phone
  • If you make a flight purchase, the flight must originate in the United States, and be charged in USD
  • You must book by December 31, 2021, though there’s no need to actually travel by then
  • The offer is valid for the purchase of airfare, upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, standby fees, and Delta SkyClub memberships
  • The offer excludes purchases of onboard food, beverages, and Wi-Fi, standalone hotel bookings and car rentals through delta.com, purchases through third parties or affiliated agents, Delta Vacations, Delta Dive, Delta Cargo, On Demand Charter services, Delta Flight Museum, Delta SkyMiles Marketplace purchases, SkyMiles experiences, SkyMiles Cruises, Delta Meeting Network, gift card purchases, and charitable donations

Ideally you’ll see this offer on the Amex Platinum

It’s possible you’ll see this offer on several cards, though ideally you’ll have it on The Platinum Card® from American Express (review). That’s because the card offers 5x Membership Rewards points on airfare. 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 $100-125 statement credit and 5x points, you’re potentially looking at getting almost half off on $300 worth of spending on Delta. 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.

Bottom line

There’s a new targeted Amex Offers deal that can save you $100-125 on a Delta purchase. This is an excellent deal, and when you factor in the statement credit and value of points, this can potentially get you nearly half off a $300 Delta purchase.

If you have any upcoming travel to plan, be sure to check your Amex account to see if you’re eligible for this offer.

Were you targeted for this offer, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of it?

    The offer has reappeared under "Added to Card" with an expiration of 12/31/2021, so it looks like you're good to go if you managed to add it when it was available.

    @ Eric, @ Wen

    I have the same issue. Through Amex chat the agent confirmed that it's a technical glitch where the offer shows as being expired as of 10/14 and they are not sure when it will reappear. However, my offer was added correctly and I can still use the offer, the agent actually wrote out the terms and conditions right in the chat so if any issue arises receiving the credit I'll be able to refer to the chat.

  3. Wen

    Does anyone have any new updates on this? I chatted with Amex online last night and was told it's a tech glitch that will be fixed. As of now the offer is gone from my account.

  4. Eric

    I added offer this to my Platinum card and the expiration date changed to today (10/14/2021) after I added it. I hope that's just a glitch and it'll still be there tomorrow.

    1. Eric

      *this offer

      update: it's gone. I guess I can't trust Amex offers not to change their terms after I add them anymore. That's disappointing.

    2. Eric

      I commented outside of the thread, but the offer is back under "Added to Card" with an expiration of 12/31/2021. I guess it was just a glitch after all.

    Sadly I just booked two First Class flights last week.....

    I echo @Anthony - I have saved at least $500+ as well with my OBC Amex via Hertz, Marriott and Delta offers in the past year. It has kept that OBC Amex in my wallet and is the go-to for Travel (ex-AS flights).

  7. Echo

    Bummer, did not get this offer on my personal Platinum, Gold, Blue Delta card or business Blue Plus card. I have been flying (and booking) Delta a lot lately on my Platinum card FWIW.

  8. Anthony

    I think I have saved at least $500 on various travel expenses through Amex offers this year, will save another $125 with this one. Real value here. I got this offer on my Amex Green, not Amex Platinum or any of the Delta cards.

  9. Peter

    I got this offer on my AMEX Gold but not on the Platinum.. I mean its better than nothing since I do need to book some flights for January

    How about purchasing a Gift card for $300 on Delta.com for future travel

    1. Allen

      The T&C explicitly exclude gift cards. Perhaps it might trigger the credit, but technically it is not supposed to and might be cause for claw back.

    FREE MONEY! Jokes aside, exceptionally convenient for me in RDU given my impending leap off the AA status hamster wheel that started 10 years ago when I was a captive US Airways flyer in PHL.
