We’ve seen a few Delta Amex Offers over the past couple years, and this one is targeting some cardholders. I checked all of the accounts that I manage and none of them were targeted unfortunately.

Amex has several cobranded Delta cards and keeps a close relationship with Delta, and I, nor any of the accounts I manage, hold those cards. It’s possible that people holding Delta branded Amex cards may be targeted vs just Membership Rewards earning cards.

One thing to keep in mind, is that you can cancel Delta flights without a fee currently, and have a credit that should last for a year. So you could book a dummy flight for $300, get the $75 credit, and then cancel that flight to have a $300 Delta credit in our account that you paid $225 to purchase. If you purchase gift card offer just remember to screen cap or save the gift card in your notes section ( that’s what I do anyways ).

Amex Offers: Delta Gift Cards Spend $300 get 4500 Membership Rewards

My account was just targeted for this offer – Amex points are worth 1.7c to 2c so if you took the conservative valuation you’re getting $76.5 and the more aggressive $90 back in value via points. Pretty good deal!

Amex Offers

If you read the blog often, you know I’m a huge advocate and fan of Amex Offers. While Amex cards that don’t carry a fee get targeted, I often have instances where my cards that have high fees will get specific offers that others won’t. That happened to be the case with this Delta offer. My Amex Business Platinum had this offer targeted, but none of my other Amex cards did.

If you’re unfamiliar with Amex Offers you can read our full breakdown here.

Here are the 10 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers and why we have them in our wallet and recommend your consideration.

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
