We occasionally see Amex Offers for some of American Express’ co-brand credit card partners, and we’ve just seen such an offer introduced.

Save $120 with Delta Air Lines purchase

A new targeted Amex Offers deal has just been rolled out, which offers a $120 statement credit when you spend $300+ with Delta Air Lines by December 31, 2020.

That’s the equivalent of up to 40% back on a Delta purchase, which is incredible. We last saw such an offer around the same time last year, except the offer was for $60 back when spending $300+, rather than $120 back.

There are some basic conditions of this offer worth being aware of:

  • You need to spend $300, but it can be in multiple transactions
  • The flight must originate in the US, and the purchase must be in USD
  • The terms don’t indicate that you actually have to book a flight, bur rather that it needs to be a valid purchase on delta.com, and can include things like airfare, upgrades, baggage fees, SkyClub memberships, etc.

Let me once again emphasize that this offer is targeted, so not all accounts will be eligible.

The ideal card on which to have this offer

In an ideal world you’d have this offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express (review), since it offers 5x points on airfare purchased directly with airlines. 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 $120 statement credit and 5x points, you’re potentially looking at getting nearly half of the cost back on $300 of spending. The one card on which I was targeted for this offer is my personal Platinum Card, so that’s awesome.

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 for a $120 statement credit when you spend $300+ with Delta. This is an excellent deal, as it’s the equivalent of 40% back, while a similar offer last year was for just 20% back.

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

  1. Remember to add enough offers so that your offer total declines under 100. Initially, this offer wasn’t showing up for me. After adding a ton of offers, it did show up under my Amex Charles Schwab.

    So many Amex offers and discounts on flights/hotels right now that it really makes a lot of sense to book some flights and trips this fall…

  2. Delta Reserve, Delta Platinum, AMEX Gold, AMEX Bonvoy Biz = all zero
    Maybe because I’m Delta Diamond and they know I will fly with them? I am not convinced having more AMEX cards gets all these great offers. I have basically the same offers on all my cards, with some tiny variations. 95% of the “offers” are for things I will never use. It seems more like things they want me to try. For example, I always get Hilton offers, but I never stay at Hiltons!
    Of I might go to a restaurant, and they send me offers for other restaurants, but again, to restaurants I would never go to. I’m vegan, but yet I always get offers for Omaha Steak :(((

  3. Mine was ‘spend $1,000+, earn 500 Miles + 500 MQMs, up to 25,000 Miles and 25,000 MQMs” on my Delta Reserve business card. I already had “Earn 2 additional miles per dollar spent on Delta purchases”, which I have used a few times already. It let me have both. Score! Although not sure I will spend $1,000 soon.

  4. I followed the advice of others on here by adding many offers until the Delta offer showed up. I did this across 3 of my Amex cards and it appeared in all of them. Thank you, fellow commenters!

  5. I got it on my non cobranded cards, BCE, Platinum, Green and went with the platinum. No offer on Delta Platinum, not surprised.

  6. Interesting. I checked ~5 hours ago when this was posted and nothing. Checked again just now and it was on both my Green & Plat cards.

    Check again, if you saw nothing initially.

  7. Question for all – purchase has to be made by 12/31 but it doesn’t say anything about the flight being required by then. Since airline tickets are paid for at time of booking I assume I can buy a ticket on DL to use in Q1 2021, as long as I buy it before 12/31, and this will apply.

    Please confirm if that is your understanding.

    Thanks

  8. I’ve come to use almost zero Amex Offers anymore. They only offer these always on the card that I wouldn’t use, so Delta Offers pop up on the Hilton Cards, Hilton Offers pop up on any of the other cards but the Hilton Cards and Marriott offers never come up on Marriott branded cards. It looks like they are trying to naturally limit the benefit and try to get you to use (and get) other cards for the payments that you would normally do on a specific card…

  9. Hello – Has anyone attempted to purchase a gift card or miles one delta.com with the Offer active on your Amex? Did it trigger the bonus?
