There is some more good news out today from Delta. You can now buy e-Gift cards online (you must be LOG-IN to see page btw). You can buy them up to $1000 each and they can ONLY be used on Delta and Delta code share flights. You can also use up to 3 per ticket but with conditions. It says:
“A maximum of three forms of payment (including Certificates or Cards) can be applied towards a single ticket. Certificates and Cards cannot be used in conjunction with any other certificate, voucher or credit towards a single ticket.”
So, say you have 3 – $500 e-Cards but your ticket is $2000. Then, you would have to use 2 of them and your credit card for the rest. Clear? All the T&C are on the Delta site or you see a text copy of them here.
There is another HUGE win for those who use the (NON-DELTA) American Express Platinum Card as it will let you get $200 credit per year for Delta related items, like food or bag fees, once you register that you want Delta to be your credit for the year (see the Terms, Conditions & Disclosures at link above) . Most are saying any fees and charges from Delta are being credited. I see no reason it will not be the same for these, but I have not tested it yet. Assuming it works, look what you could get in less than one year for the card fee:
- $200 e-Gift this year
- $200 e-Gift after Jan 1st next year
- $100 GOES credit back when paid with card
- Gold SPG status
- Skyclub and other lounge access
… and so many more perks as well!
Without question this will be the next AMEX card I go for and will likely be a long term keeper for me. So I welcome the addition of e-Gift cards to Delta; nice to see some good news! – René
