Thoughts

The first offer (for $200 of spending) is one that I can see targeted to my Amex Membership Rewards credit cards and which doesn’t appear to be targeted to any of my Amex co-branded cards or my Amex business cards (YMMV).

The second offer (for $350 of spending) has been targeted to my Blue Business Plus® credit card from American Express (review) and doesn’t appear to have been targeted to any of my Amex consumer cards (YMMV).

Overall, there’s quite a bit of good news here.

Firstly, I’m seeing the offer for a $75 rebate on the Platinum Card® from American Express (as well as on other consumer cards) which means that not only can I get a rebate of up to 37.5% on my next Delta booking but also that I can earn 5 points/dollar on that booking too (terms apply) – that’s a double bonus.

Secondly, the wording of both offers suggests that the spending target (low as it is) doesn’t have to be hit in a single transaction for the rebate to be triggered. As long as a cardholder makes $200/$350 of eligible spending on their targeted card(s) by the end of September, the rebate(s) will be paid.

Thirdly, both of these rebates can be triggered by spending made on purchases other than airfares – both sets of terms and conditions confirm that spending made directly with Delta on fare upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, standby fees, and Delta Sky Club memberships will trigger the rebates – so that should make these offers pretty easy to use.

Fourthly, as these are two separate offers, anyone who has been targeted for both can load both to their chosen cards and earn both rebates – I have loaded the $75 offer to my Platinum Card® and the $100 offer to my Blue Business Plus® credit card without any issues.

On the downside, these offers will only work for travel originating in the US (which is a little disappointing) and because only spending made directly with Delta will trigger the rebates, holders of the Business Platinum Card® from American Express who have been targeted for the $100 rebate offer will not be able to earn 5 points/dollar (this card only earns 5 points/dollar on flights booked through Amex Travel – terms apply).

Bottom Line

Amex is currently targeting holders of select consumer and business cards for two separate offers for eligible spending made directly with Delta Airlines. Targeted cardholders can earn $75 and $100 rebates on eligible spending made by the end of September 2022 and as this eligible spending doesn’t have to be made in a single transaction, these offers should have broad appeal.

One Of The Best Amex Cards Around

The American Express® Gold Card offers the best earnings rates for spending at US supermarkets and on dining out of any American Express Membership Rewards card, and it offers credits for Uber/Uber Eats and dining which help offset the $250 annual fee (rates & fees).

Currently, the American Express® Gold Card is offering successful new applicants 60,000 bonus Membership Rewards Points after they spend $4,000 on their new card in the first 6 months of card membership.

The Great Benefits (Terms Apply)

  • Earn 4 points/dollar on spending at U.S Supermarkets (up to $25,000 in spending/year)
  • Earn 4 points/dollar on dining and takeout (including Uber Eats)
  • Earn 3 points/dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel
  • Get $120/year in dining credits (at select eateries)
  • Get $120/year in Uber Cash credits
  • Get $100/year Hotel Collection credit
