No, you can not redeem 9 Delta gift cards online (maybe soon?)! But there are workarounds.

Check gift cards on Delta.com

RenesPoints Twitter follower “The Grand Gator” the other week tweeted me that Delta may have, at long last, fixed one of my biggest IT gripes, that is, the ability to use more than 3 gift cards per ticket on Delta.com.

Dang it Delta! Grrrrrrrrr

The problem is, when you take the 9 gift cards to the next step i.e. in booking a ticket, you get the above error.

More please Delta. More!

I believe the reason for the error is that when you go to check-out and buy a ticket on Delta.com you are still only offered the option to use a maximum of 3 gift cards per reservation.

But could the above change that Mr. Gator found be a sign of things to come? I really hope so.

The workaround is to contact Delta either @Delta on Twitter or via a good Delta phone rep and they can combine almost unlimited gift cards for a single ticket (it just takes time and work). So maybe the Delta IT folks are working on this update? We can only hope this is the case. – René

  1. The gift cards at once feature at delta(dot)com/redeem has been around since late 2017

  2. is this someone we can do now, or do we have to wait until we are in the process of booking a ticket on delta?

  3. @Rene. Two points. How did you get the gift cards into your wallet on delta.com? I thought this was still impossible. And second, working with a rep I tried to use 12 gift cards to buy 2 Delta tickets (for myself and spouse) just 2 weeks ago. At first the rep said no problem, but after lots of attempts she came back to me and said, sorry – 3 max per ticket, have to split the record and use only 3 gift cards per ticket, so I was able to only use 6 of my 12. Initially the rep thought I could use all of them. Bad rep? What are the key words to say if indeed one can use more than 3 per ticket. Thanks.

    • @Don in ATL – There is no way to get them into your “My Wallat” sad to say. That would be a HUGE “enhancement” from Delta if we could. I would try twitter next time vs calling.

  4. I have used 5 gift cards on one ticket before by calling in, last year. Might have been the rep. But their IT changes so much, who knows.
