Update 11/23/21: More targeted

Update 10/15/21: Old end date of 12/31/21 is now showing.

Update 10/15/21: American Express has updated the offer and it now ends today (10/14). Not good.

The Offer

Check your AmEx Offers for the following deal:

  • Spend $300 or more online at Delta Air Lines and get a $125 statement credit. Expires 12/31/21.

Our Verdict

Gift card purchases have worked in the past to trigger similar Amex Offers, despite the terms suggesting it’s not eligible. Not sure if the offer is different on personal and business cards like last time.

Looks like the same expiration as before. Had it disappeared for a while?

Thanks, updated with a note

Just a reminder: DO NOT participate in the current x2 miles promotion, even on a desktop. It runs through CashStar and codes as “Delta Air Line GC” when pending so won’t trigger the credit.

How do you not participate? Every link I see on their website takes you to this offer?

Update: I did not receive the credit and purchased the EGC on 10-14 for $300. I reached it to Amex through chat on 10-20 and the rep stated that the merchant number is not found under the merchant list even though I made the purchase on the delta website. I decided to check the delta gift cards website and it states no refunds. I sent an email to deltagiftcards@delta.com on 10-20 and requested a refund. I received a final response today that they will be refunding the purchase.

Did you do it on a desktop? I received my credit.

Also never call AMEX for stuff like this.

Toya

No. I did it on my phone. I did not call only chat. I did not tell him that I purchased an EGC.

Thank you for the DP! Today I made a purchase that coded differently (so won’t qualify for the credit) and immediately sent the refund request to the email address you mentioned. May I ask how you persuaded them to allow for a refund?

This is what I wrote “I would like to cancel the gift card and request a refund. Due to a previous issue I will no longer be flying with Delta Airlines.”

Is anyone having issue redeeming their egc? It has been 72 hrs since I bought them and I am getting 100800_SMR error when I try to book a flight.

The egc finally worked. It was definitely more than 72 hrs. It took more like 5 days. And of course the fare went up during the meantime.

Bought a $300 EGC on Delta website on 10/19 around 17:30(CDT). Haven’t seen credit posted to my accounts as of right now.
Did not receive the email from Amex after purchase.
The offer is gone from Added to Card but $125 showed up in Saving earlier this morning.

Rendi It takes 2 days at the very minimum for anything to show, as it has to go from a pending purchase to a confirmed purchase, then it sometimes takes a couple days beyond that. Please report back over the next couple days and let us know if you get the credit.

Confirm received the $125 credit this morning.
