American Express’ Amex Offers program is a feature of all of its cards and offers unique discounts, rebates, and additional points-earning opportunities for purchases made through select merchants. The savings can be very significant, and it’s worth taking advantage of the offers when you can.
Eligible cardholders can now spend $400 on Delta flights through Amex Travel and receive a $100 statement credit. Let’s learn more about this valuable offer!
Unlike other Amex Offers that require you to spend directly with a merchant, this deal is a little different. For this offer, targeted cardholders will need to book directly with AmexTravel.com (purchases via the Amex app or by phone are excluded).
You’ll need to spend $400 or more on Delta Air Lines flights to receive $100 back as a statement credit, which usually posts within a few days of the initial purchase (but can take up to 90 days).
To take advantage, your flights need to be on Delta only — they can’t be operated by a partner such as Air France or KLM. Essentially, as long as it says “Delta” on the side of the plane, you’ll be fine.
You’ll need to book by March 31, 2022, but because these are airline tickets, you can travel anytime after that date. The ticket simply needs to be booked by March 31 (in reality, it should be booked several days prior, allowing the charges to fully post to your account).
To redeem the offer, you first need to add it to your card, which is very easy to do using the Amex website or mobile app (see our detailed guide to using Amex Offers for step-by-step instructions). It’s worth noting this offer is targeted and not everyone will be eligible, though based on current data points, many people are.
How To Maximize This Offer
If you have the offer on multiple American Express cards, it’s worth adding the offer to your The Platinum Card® from American Express for maximum earning. Because travel booked through Amex Travel on the Amex Platinum card earns 5x points per dollar spent, you’ll earn, at a minimum, 2,000 Membership Rewards points for the transaction, assuming you spend exactly $400.
Then, when you take your Delta-operated flight, you can enter any Delta Sky Club in its network by simply showing your Amex Platinum card.
You can also use this offer to book tickets for other people and/or multiple tickets, and this can be done directly through Amex Travel. Even if you don’t intend on traveling, find a colleague or friend that can take advantage of this to avail themselves of the savings.
Getting a 25% savings on a Delta ticket of $400 in value is extremely rare, so if you are eligible for this Amex Offer, it’s definitely worth adding it to your card and either booking a flight for yourself or finding someone else who can utilize the credit. The $100 statement credit usually posts within a few days, so the savings are not only significant but quick as well.
