I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
American Express has an ‘Amex Offer’ of $160 off a purchase of $800 or more made directly with Delta by October 7. If you buy flights, they must originate in the U.S.
This is technically targeted, in other words it may not be available to everyone, but it seems to be available quite broadly. Just log into your American Express account, scroll down to the bottom of the screen to see it. Make sure you’ve selected the card you want to add it to and select to add it to your account.
I added it to my Platinum Card by American Express since it earns 5 points per dollar on airfare. I may not use it, I don’t fly Delta often but I have flown Delta. And better to have it in my account in case I do have a need to spend $800 or more with Delta over the next two months.
In addition to flights you can buy club memberships, pay for upgrades or checked bags or seats, and even book Delta Vacations packages at Delta.com.
When I first saw the offer written about this morning I checked my account and it wasn’t there. In fact no Amex Offers were. But that glitch has been solved and I had no problem seeing and adding the offer.

Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: CHMU:0001
