The Offer

Check your Amex Offers for one the following deals:

  • Get a $40 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $200 in one or more qualifying transactions direct with Delta Air Lines by 9/5/2019. Flight destination must be BOS, RDU or SEA from any U.S. airport. USD only. 

  • Get a $40 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $200 in one or more qualifying transactions direct with Delta Air Lines by 9/5/2019. Flights must originate only from BOS, RDU or SEA, with destination to any U.S. airport. USD only. 

 

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid only for round trip flight purchases made directly with Delta Air Lines through U.S. delta.com, via U.S. Fly Delta App, and U.S. reservation telephone line at 800-221-1212.
  • Excludes Delta Private Jets & On Demand Charter services. Purchases made through third parties or affiliated agents will not qualify for this offer.
  • Purchase must be in U.S. Dollars (USD) and flights must originate from any U.S. airport, with destination only to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) or Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
  • Flights must be purchased as non-stop round trip (no connections). Multi-City and one way flights with the same origin/destination requirements will not qualify for meeting the purchase requirement of $200.
  • Only the base fare of your flight will qualify for the purchase requirement. Cabin class or fare upgrades must be booked at the time of the initial purchase in order to qualify. All other purchases and add-ons (such as Wifi, insurance, etc) will not qualify for meeting the purchase requirement.

Our Verdict

Looks like this one is widely available, but again, it’s only for going to BOS, RDU or SEA. Weird kind of offer which we’ve never really seen before. Still nice for people in those areas or going there.

Haha such a strange offer, I didn’t notice the destination restriction until now. But I’m sure some people can use!

Ha, me either. I was that on one of my cards this morning and kicked myself because we just booked flights (on Delta) to go see the in-laws for T-giving…turns out, this offer wouldn’t have helped at all.

Actually need to purchase a Delta flight to Boston today and I’m not targeted on any of my six cards. Sigh.

Got this on my Gold Amex and Delta Platinum Amex, not Schwab Amex Platinum or Hilton Aspire.

One interesting DP/correction–I am Seattle based, and the wording on mine is different. It says: “Purchase must be in U.S. Dollars (USD) and flights must originate only from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) or Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), with destination to any U.S. airport.”

So mine says I can originate in Seattle and go anywhere. Checked my parents’ accounts, who live elsewhere, and the wording is similar to the post, saying the destination must be Seattle (or Boston or RDU), and origin is any U.S. airport.

The offer shows up for me, but the restriction is on the point of origin, not the destination. “Flight must originate in BOS, RDU or SEA to any U.S. airport.” I do live 10 minutes away from one of those airports, so maybe the offer changes based on your location?

Can this be combined with the Delta Companion Pass?

Hi – Since the multi-tab trick stopped working is there any current way to get these AMEX offers across more than one AMEX card under one user? TIA

They are per SSN now. So you can only get multiple on the same card, as long as you have auth users of the card who also have been targetted.

Seems like AMEX offers are getting less and less useful, with more and more off the wall offers that make it harder to justify renewing cards with AF, even moreso when these very specific offers are not sent to everyone, and with no rhyme or reason for targeting.

Also wish there was a way to filter offer from oldest to newest.

This point is a bit odd: “Flights must be purchased as non-stop round trip (no connections). Multi-City and one way flights with the same origin/destination requirements will not qualify for meeting the purchase requirement of $200.” So does this mean that if I am flying to BOS but there are no direct flights and I have to connect through ATL on the way too and from BOS then it won’t trigger the AMEX Offer?

That’s how I read it, which is a bit frustrating living in DEN with a flight to BOS coming up, but no DL nonstops…

Just my hunch, but I’m going to guess that tickets with connections, but otherwise are RT with O/D with the cities listed will trigger (at least most of the time, so longer as the PNR isn’t split). From an IT and data perspective the transaction should come over to AMEX as a RT “X > BOS > X” or “SEA > X > SEA” in a PNR even with the connections. OWs and mutli-cities are harder to track/register.

The offer might seem weird, but it really isn’t. If you’ve been following Delta’s recent efforts to build up mini-hubs in Seattle, Boston, and Raleigh, then this offer makes perfect sense. This is Delta trying to jump start passenger traffic to these mini-hubs. I’m sure Delta is reimbursing Amex for the full amount of the offer. Think of this as a Delta offer with Amex as the broker.

I agree, it seems very strategic. For me it works out since I am SEA based. Though I would think Delta missed an opportunity by not saying people could use SEA, RDU and BOS as connecting airports (if the offer said travel must be to, from or through those cities). A connecting itinerary would result in 4 segments for the airport rather than 2.

Simon

My guess is there are concessions or tax considerations Delta has written into these airports with the local jurisdictions based on O/D passengers. A connecting passenger does not impact the local economy beyond the airport the same way.

Do we have to fly and complete the trip by Sept. 5th or just purchase by the 5th?

should just be purchase by

Hmmm. Why such a discriminating offer? If I live in any of these 3 locations, I can go (almost) ANYWHERE! Hundreds of options for travel. But if I leave anyplace else, just 3 possibilities (if at all – for those who do not have direct options with delta) 🙁
Delta, just make it easier on everyone and offer something like $20 off $200 for any kind of travel.

showed up on my platinum card but not everyday or blue cash

any caveat for refundable” flights?

Next up – Get 75% of your entire flight cost on Delta, but only if you travel on a Wednesday and sit in row 15.

If I purchase two fares on the same itinerary that cost $150 each ($300 total), will I still receive the statement credit? Asking because when I purchase two fares on the same itinerary with other airlines (Southwest, Frontier), it appears as two separate charges on my credit card.

the fine prints say “in one or more transactions”. so it prob won’t matter in your case
