Buying Delta Giftcards? Make Sure You Buy The Right Ones To Trigger Airline Credits
Recently there has been quite a few data points suggesting that purchasing Delta gift cards is no longer working to trigger American Express airline incidental credits. Thankfully it seems like FT user lordvaderman has solved the issue. There are two sites you can purchase Delta gift cards from:
- Desktop site: Gift cards are issued by Delta Gift Cards, Inc. This codes as ‘Delta Airlines’
- Mobile site: Powered by CashStar. This codes as ‘Delta Airlines GC’
There are very recent data points of the site option trigger the reimbursement. So make sure you’re purchasing your cards through the desktop site to avoid any issues.
Also note that only gift cards $50 or less work to trigger the airline credit.
