New Amex Offer: Save $120 When Flying Delta

Let’s get straight to the point…some of the links on this site pay 1TattedPassport a referral bonus for anyone that is approved.

Perhaps, I should start these posts by saying “If you haven’t checked your Amex Offers lately, you may want to do that ASAP” because American Express has been offering some amazing discounts lately!


Over the past few days, I’ve highlighted several travel-related Amex Offer discounts (like THIS, THIS, and THIS). And Amex continues to drop even more great offers so, let’s just jump into it…

There’s currently a new targeted Amex Offer to receive a one-time $120 statement credit by spending a minimum of $300 in one or more transactions directly with Delta Air Lines by 12/31/2020. That’s a savings of 40%!!

If you’re not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program where your American Express credit cards are targeted for various savings and bonus offers. In many cases, these offers can save you big money. I mean…would you pay $100/year to save $500 or more?


As always, I would recommend that you read through the offer terms so you’re aware of how to utilize this offer, but below are some general terms to be aware of:

  • Flights must originate in the U.S. (including territories) and purchase must be in USD.
  • Offer valid for purchases made directly with Delta Air Lines through U.S., via Fly Delta U.S. App, and U.S. reservation telephone line.
  • Offer valid only for purchases where Delta Air Lines is the merchant of record, such as airfare, fare upgrades, seat selection fees, baggage fees, standby fees, and Delta Sky Club® memberships.


To view your Amex Offers, login to your Amex account and scroll to the bottom of your account summary page where you’ll see a list of eligible offers for that specific card. It should look like this…


Historically, we’ve seen this deal before, BUT if my memory severs me correctly, the highest we’ve ever seen is a $60 credit when spending $300, so $120 is major but also suggests that the reality for airline bookings is grim and Delta (in this case) may be somewhat desperate for revenue.

Even if you’re not planning on flying right now, 40% off in the future is solid!

In fact, if you’ve been keeping up with the blog, you may recognize that Delta is waiving change fees for a year from the date you make the reservation on newly booked flights.

Thinking strategically, you could add the offer and just wait until the end of the year to book a flight. That would allow you to make a booking well into November 2021. You would then be able to change that flight anytime during the next year (with no change fee), thus extending your window of opportunity and allowing you to rebook an alternative flight well into 2022.

If COVID-19 is still around at that point…we have bigger issues on our hands! 😷

But as always, throw FOMO (fear of missing out) out the door if this is going to put a strain on your finances. Saving 40% to then pay late fees or interest is nonsense!

Pro-Tip: I would recommend adding this Amex Offer ASAP even if you don’t plan to use it. American express has started this “unique” trend where they only let so many people add the offer to their card and once it hits that limit, it disappears from your account if you haven’t loaded it.

And don’t forget, you can use THIS TRICK if you want to see more Amex offers.

Were you targeted for this Amex Offer? Do you plan on taking advantage of this offer?
