Have a Delta SkyMiles co-branded credit card? There's a new targeted Amex Offer available giving Delta American Express cardholders an easy way to save big on an upcoming Delta flight. Spend $250 or more with Delta, and you'll get $50 right back. 

If you have this offer, you'll want to add it to your card ASAP! These Delta offers often disappear quickly.

Every member of the Thrifty Traveler team with a Delta SkyMiles credit card has the offer available. That means if you have a card like the Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card, the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card, or even the top-tier Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card, it's likely you have the offer as well.

Just add this offer to your American Express card, then use it to make your purchase with Delta by Dec. 31, 2022. You don't need to spend $250 in one fell swoop – just spend that amount with Delta before the deadline and the statement credit will kick in automatically. And you don't need to travel before the end of the year, either – just book your flights or make some other Delta purchase beforehand.

Airfare originating in the U.S., upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, standby fees, and Delta SkyClub memberships all qualify. In the past, buying Delta gift cards has worked as well, but that's no guarantee as these transactions are often handled by a 3rd party and not Delta itself.

Per the terms and conditions of the offer, only U.S.-issued consumer and small business Delta SkyMiles American Express Cards are eligible for the offer.

You've got until Dec. 31 to spend and earn the credit, but you'll want to add and use this Amex Offer to your card as soon as you see it. These offers can disappear fast.


Where to Find Amex Offers

If you haven’t used Amex Offers before, simply log into your American Express account and scroll down near the bottom of the screen and there should be a box called Amex Offers & Benefits. It’s available through the Amex mobile app as well.

If you see an offer you like, simply add the offer to the card and make a qualifying purchase at that business with your card. In this case, you’ll need to book directly with Delta for the cashback credits to kick in.

You should receive a statement credit for the offer within a few days of making a purchase, though in some cases it can take several weeks. And keep in mind you don’t need to hit the spending threshold in one shot – you can spread it out over several transactions.

Bottom Line

This is a fantastic Amex Offer to save on upcoming Delta flights, getting $50 on a purchase of $250 or more with Delta.

Unfortunately, it seems this latest Delta Amex offer is highly targeted and only available for Delta co-branded credit card holders. If you don't have a Delta card, you won't see this offer.

Just make sure to check, add this Amex offer ASAP if you've got it, and book travel with Delta by the end of the year.

  • Awww man! I just purchased two tickets from MPLS to L.A. for $163 about 2 days ago. Should I cancel and then rebook to get this offer?

    • You could, but…
      -Check to make sure you have the offer first!
      -Keep in mind that if you cancel, you won’t get a refund – you’d get a voucher for the value of your ticket. So you’d have to use those vouchers separately as well.

  • Hi Kyle,

    As soon as I read your piece, I went to the AMEX site to load this offer, but of course, it was not offered. There were plenty of others but I found this one to be most desirable.

  • I have been checking for this offer since TT 1st posted it like a week or so ago, this offer is still not available DELTA sky miles GOLD card

  • Thanks for the heads up on this! It’s still not appearing for me 🙁
    but at least thanks to you I got in on the 8x Amazon offer.
    TT FTW!

  • I have 2 Amex cards including one I have been using for 15 years and I am never targeted for these great deals. So sad…

    • Hi Anni,

      This is a targeted offer from American Express. That means it unfortunately will not be available for all cardholders.

  • I’m excited to find it! I have a couple of flights I want to book on Delta for next Thanksgiving. It sounds like I can book before Dec. 31st and hopefully the flight schedule for next Thanksgiving will be available by then. If I book the flights can I change the dates or will there be a change fee?

    • As long as you don’t book basic economy fares, you will be able to change them or cancel them for a voucher.

  • Very strange. I added the offer to my card yesterday (10/14/21) will the expiry date of 12/31/21. By the evening when I checked my card account again, the expiry date became 10/14/21! And of course it’s gone today (10/15/21) before I got a chance to book a flight.

  • Just checked and unfortunately we didn’t get it (Delta Platinum AMEX and Delta Blue AMEX). Too bad as this is a great deal.
