American Express is really going in with airline offers lately on their Amex Offers platform. Amex Offers is American Express’ platform for offering cardmembers targeted deals for purchases with select retailers. We’ve seen offers for 20,000 Membership Rewards Points after $1,000 spend with Air France and airberlin.
The latest targeted offer seems to be in the form of cash back. If targeted, through October 7, 2017, you’ll get a $160 credit after spending at least $800 in one or more transactions on delta.com. While 20,000 Membership Rewards Points was certainly an incentive to book with the above carriers, it’s nice getting 20% cash back on $800. All my personal American Express cards are targeted for this offer, so I’ll probably add it to my Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, which earns 3x points per dollar spent on airfare. Since this is a cash back offer, you’ll still earn points for the full $800+ of spend. The ideal card to use in this situation would be The Platinum Card® from American Express, since it would earn 4,000+ miles for the $800 spend with its 5x points from airlines.
American Express has really been turning out some incredible offers lately. For me, The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express was also targeted for this offer. This is one of the main reasons we love holding onto as many American Express cards as possible, since it’s unique being able to earn $160 back on a no-annual fee card.
The terms of the offer are as follows:
Offer valid for purchases made directly with Delta Air Lines through delta.com, Fly Delta App, and US reservation telephone line. Flights must originate in the U.S., including U.S. territories and purchases must be in USD to qualify. Offer valid only for purchases where Delta Air Lines is the merchant of record, such as airfare, fare upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, and Sky Club® memberships. Purchases such as Delta Shuttle® and Delta Vacation® packages are included if purchased through delta.com.
As you can see, the offer is valid for upgrades, SkyClub memberships, and even Delta Vacation packages. I’ll definitely look into how I can take advantage of this.
