Is It Worth It?

Even if you weren’t planning on flying Delta anytime soon, this is a pretty lucrative offer. After all, Delta gift cards don’t expire, so you’ll be able to use these at any point in the future. They’re also not limited to a single purchaser; anyone can redeem the gift card.

We value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, which means you’ll be getting $132 worth of bonus points by redeeming this offer. Add into this the 300 points you’ll earn for the purchase, and you’re looking at a net of $138.69 worth of points for your $300 purchase — or a 46.2% return on your spend. That’s amazing!

Obviously, the limit for this offer is just $300 worth of gift cards, which likely won’t get you far if you’re looking at international travel. If that’s the case, don’t worry. You can use both gift cards and credit cards together when booking flights on Delta’s website.

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent Amex Offer, even if you’re not someone who flies frequently on Delta. Log in to your account to see if you’re targeted. If so, don’t wait — enrollment on this is sure to be overwhelming.
