delta skymiles amex offer

Many of us got pretty excited about a new Amex Offer today for $150 off $600 on Delta.

I was even more excited to actually have it on my Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Credit Card where I’d even get 3X miles on the purchase. 

But as I read the fine print (how many of us actually read all of the Terms and Conditions each time? Well, we should 😉 ), I found that I’d have to depart JFK or BOS and arrive at LHR, CDG, or DUB to qualify!

That is pretty specific. 

Remembering that this was posted in the Facebook group, I went to warn people of the limitations when I saw that Tim R. has a completely different set of terms!

So he has to depart LAX or SEA and can only go to HNL, OGG, LIH or KOA (all in Hawaii).

This is the first time I can recall an airfare offer in Amex Offers requiring specific departure and destination airports. I think usually it simply has to depart from the US.

What other offers are you all seeing? Please post in the comments!

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
