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.
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.
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
