Anybody have luck with calling in and using more than 3 $50 cards in a transaction? Read some scattered reports of this being possible, but not sure of the truthiness.

Do these Delta GC have expirations?

No, at least not the eGCs.

Not after five days. Wait a few weeks to see if the charge is reimbursed automatically.

Just to update: the Comfort+ seat change was not reimbursed automatically, but a call to Amex the other day appears to have done the trick (they said they will reimburse it).

Not sure if it's worth the hassle to call in. If it is a domestic flight, usually the cost of two one way tickets will be same as booking a roundtrip. Should be able to use up all your the gift codes this way.

Wiki covers each, here is the eGC:

"eGift Card (eCert) details
  • Delta eGift Cards (eCerts) have been reimbursed in practice, even though technically they do not meet the criteria listed by Amex for reimbursement. The name on the eCerts doesn't matter and need not match your card, but you must purchase using an eligible Amex card and meet the other criteria detailed in this Wiki.
  • Denominations over $50 will not generate the credit. Multiple $50 eCerts will. The smallest denomination available is $50.
  • To order, to the eGift cert order page, or navigate via Delta.com>Shop>eGift Certificate.
  • No need to place separate orders using multiple carts/checkouts. By adding multiple certs to one order (e.g., 4 x $50), even though they are in the same cart, the certs will post as separate transactions and still generate a credit for each.
  • eCert purchases may initially authorize (show pending) as ticket purchases before posting to (finalize on) your statement. Multiple-eCert orders may authorize the combined value as a single pending ticket purchase. Don't worry; they'll post later as separate eCert charges in the qualifying amounts.
  • eCerts are generated instantly, but the codes are not valid for use until 72 hours after purchase, so don't order expecting to use them in a pinch.
  • A maximum of three eCerts may be redeemed per online transaction. Splitting a round-trip into two one-ways will allow you to use additional eCerts, but in some cases two one-ways may cost more than a single roundtrip so compare carefully to decide whether using more than 3 certs on a single trip is worthwhile.
  • If purchasing a ticket for more than 1 person, splitting the purchase into a separate transaction for each person would also allow the use of more than 3 certs on a single trip at (usually) no additional cost. However this could have an adverse effect on ability to upgrade, upgrade priority, and other elite benefits, and on the likelihood of being reaccommodated on the same flight in the event of a flight cancellation.
  • eCerts do not expire. Their T&Cs are listed"

Would buying Delta vacation gift cards work the same as buying regular Delta GC?

vulnox Sep 24, 18 1:52 pm

Bought eGC on 9/18, posted 9/19, credit didn't show up until yesterday, although the credit date says 9/21.
