I got a reminder from AMEX a few days back that I could select my airline of choice for airline fee credits for my NON-Delta AMEX Platinum card (and the same goes for the NON-Delta business AMEX Platinum card). Now I had selected Delta before and would not have to change it if I want to stay with Delta (i.e. if you are sticking with Delta you don’t have to do these steps but I am doing them for the post).
You can see the list of airlines you can pick from and once you have you are LOCKED IN for all of 2015 so make the choice you really want.
There is then a confirmation screen to make sure this is in fact what you want to do.
Then a final confirmation screen you can print to show you have in fact completed the registration process.
Now what I did, as I did last year, was simply purchase 4x$50 Delta e-Gift cards for myself that I can then spend whenever I want on flights and combine 3 of them on one ticket (or more if I work it). As you can see from the above screen shot, in a few days, I got my credits for the airline fee credit reimbursement.
Now for me, the business Platinum card, is really a great call as it soon will come with 10 GoGo passes on top of all the other perks like getting myself and my wife into AMEX Centurion lounges at no extra cost, it pays for my Global entry fee via reimbursement when I use the card (and I get TSA PRE free included) and so much more.
Many have asked if the personal Platinum card will offer the same GoGo deal. At this point I have nothing further to share and have just been told that the business card is the one that will offer this perk. So wait and see. Either way, both cards are great choices and offer amazing value to me. – René
