[Expired] Amex Offers: Delta Airlines, Spend $300 & Get $60 Back (or $200/$40)

Deal has expired, view more Delta deals by clicking here.

Update 9/23/19: Check your accounts as more people have been targeted.

The Offer

No direct link, targeted offer, check Amex Offers to see if you are targeted for one of these:

  • Get a $60 statement credit by using your enrolled card to spend $300+ in one or more transactions direct with Delta Air Lines by 11/12/19. Flights must originate in the U.S. and purchase must be in USD.
  • Get a $40 statement credit by using your enrolled card to spend $200+ in one or more transactions direct with Delta Air Lines by 11/12/19. Flights must originate in the U.S. and purchase must be in USD.

The Fine Print

  • Valid for purchases made on delta.com, via Fly Delta US app, and US reservation telephone lines.
  • Flights must originate in US, including US territories and purchases must be in USD to qualify.
  • Excludes: purchases at airport, purchases on board, standalone hotel and car bookings, purchases through third parties, gift card purchases, standby fees, etc.

Our Verdict

I can’t find it on any of mine, but it seems to be somewhat widely available. It’s a pretty nice offer on a major US airline. In the past, buying Delta gift cards online worked to trigger the offer credit as well (despite the terms), let us know if you try this round. If it does work, then it’s easy for most people to take advantage of this offer by simply buying a gift card and using it whenever next needed as gift cards don’t expire. (Update: Readers confirm that it appears to be working this time as well.)

I was targeted but I am not planning to take travel soon.

Was targeted on my personal Gold card, not on Schwab Platinum or Delta Platinum. Of note, a couple months ago I was targeted for the $40 off $200 for Seattle/Boston/Raleigh flights on my Gold and Delta Platinum, and used it on my Delta Platinum. An easy $60 for me.

Does it stack with the airline credits on the gold and platinum?

I got the $40/$200. Bought a $200 egift card, and received the “Great news! You just used your Amex Offer for $40.00 cash back at Delta Air Lines” email. Will update in a few days if I actually receive it or not.

Great news! Guess they don’t care about gc purchases when delta is footing the bill as opposed to when people are using airline credits and Amex is footing the bill.

Please do follow up. Good to know after coding changes whether this still works. Thanks

This is risky, even if they give it to you, they might claw it back. The terms specifically exclude gift card purchases.

Sure, risky, but all previous offers excluded GCs, still worked.

AMEX clawbacks the past two years have been wildly erratic. The rule of thumb I use for their offers is that if it’s something I don’t need it’s never worth the risk. But for anyone who flies Delta then even at the very worst they still end up with an asset of $300 (or $200) they’ll use anyway So until we see that gift card purchases do not succeed I’d go for it if offered (and if I were at least an occasional Delta flyer).

Same here – $40/$200 and I got the message from Amex after buying a Delta EGC for $200. I received the offer on the personal Au.

FOLLOW UP: Got the $40 Credit posted to my AMEX account this morning for buying the $200 e-gift card Friday. Fingers crossed they don’t pull it back later, but for now it posted…

Thank you so much!

So we’ll never know when (if that is going to happen) they would claw back the credit?

Can you please confirm if it’s one (not two or more) egift card worth $200 bought on the desktop (not mobile) website?

Great time to use an AMEX companion pass if you have one

Hi does anyone know if the Delta phone reservation line allow splitting a flight between a couple cards?

Assuming they do, will this offer for the credit trigger with split payments? I think it will, as opposed to the last Delta offer where it had to be a return flight and to specific cities as well. The full flight HAD to be on the same card for the offer to trigger.

Just buy gift cards and apply them first to split the payment

Is that common that an offer keep disappearing and showing up again when I log into my account at different times or on different devices?

Do you have 100 offers unclaimed?

No. It happens for the 5 off 30 gas station offer and this delta one.

This happened to me. Saw the Delta offer this morning when I logged into the app but didn’t add it (stupid, I know). Logged in an hour later and it was gone

Mali

I was able to get the gas station offer back several days after. You can check you account later.

I see the $40 back on $200 purchase offer on my primary card and also my AU ..are they the same offer? I am able to add them to both cards … sorry I don’t think I have double dipped like this before if thats possible.

You can get both bonus

Sadly, neither I nor P2 are targeted. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that both of us have selected Delta as our airline of choice for the annual travel credits. Probably not, but wondering.
