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.
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.
