A pair of Delta Amex Offers released today each gives targeted cardholders the chance to save 20% on eligible Delta Air Lines purchases!

One offer is a $60 statement credit when spending $300 or more with Delta. The other is a $40 statement credit after spending $200 more on Delta purchases.

Both offers expire November 12 — which allows you almost two months to save on holiday season flights (or mileage runs!).

Remember purchases must be made by November 12 — but nothing in the terms say you must fly before the 12th. This should work on flights well into 2020, as well.

What Qualifies As An Eligible Purchase?

First of all, you don’t have to spend the $300 or $200 in one purchase. You can break it up over two or more. Just make sure you hit the spend requirement on or before November 12.

According to the offer’s terms, purchases must be made in U.S. dollars and through:

  • Delta.com (U.S. site only)
  • Fly Delta U.S. App
  • U.S. reservation telephone line

Eligible purchases include:

  • Airfare for flights originating in the U.S. — including U.S. territories
  • Fare upgrades
  • Seat selection fees
  • Baggage fees
  • Sky Club memberships
Los Angeles, California - April 18, 2014: A Delta Air Lines Boeing 757-200 with the registration N655DL takes off from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.

Delta Shuttle and Delta Vacation packages are allowable if purchased through delta.com.

What’s Excluded?

Basically, if it’s not listed above, it won’t qualify.

Even onboard purchases such as food, drinks, and WiFi aren’t eligible.

Delta Air Lines onboard Crave Flight Fuel Box.
Sorry. Onboard food and beverage aren’t eligible for the Delta Amex Offer!

Gift card purchases are also specifically excluded.

Which Cards Are Targeted?

I received the $300 offer on my Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN (learn more and compare to other cards), which rewards just one Membership Rewards point per dollar spent on flights. (But saving 20% is still a pretty good deal!).

Reader Joel was targeted for the $200 offer on his Amex Everyday Card.

Joel, my friend Rick, and I did not receive the offer on any of our Delta Amex cards. Because, naturally, why would Delta want people to purchase Delta flights with their cards when the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Platinum Card from American Express (learn more and compare to other cards) are far better alternatives?

Check your Amex Offers — and good luck!
