As you’re planning out travel for next year, Delta has an offer that will earn you a nice bonus for purchases you might have been considering anyway.
Right now, you can get a free $25 Airbnb gift card with the purchase of a $250 Delta gift card. The nice thing about Delta gift cards is that they never expire. So you can pick one up for a future trip and save a bit on your Airbnb at the same time.
I like Delta because they have weekly award sales to some great destinations (Australia, the Caribbean & Europe are frequently on the list). Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Delta gift cards can be used to pay for the taxes and fees on award flights. But some folks have reported being able to apply a Delta gift card to an award flight’s taxes by calling in. Although the phone representative I talked to said I wouldn’t be able to use my Delta gift cards for those pesky fees.
So, I would advise against getting a gift card if you’d planned to use it for an award ticket. For me personally, I prefer to pay for award tickets with my Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card anyway because the travel insurance has been super valuable for me in the past (I’ve already gotten paid $560+ this year from the trip delay insurance alone). And as long as you pay your award fees with the card the coverage still applies!
Free Airbnb Gift Card With Delta Gift Card Purchase
To get this deal buy a $250+ Delta gift card through this link.
This offer is only valid for US residents and is limited to the “first 4,000 purchasers.” You should see the Airbnb gift card listed at checkout, and if not then they are most likely sold out. Also, I didn’t see anything in the terms that restricted you from taking advantage of this deal more than once, although I haven’t tried. So if you were able to pick-up more than 1 Airbnb gift card please let me know in the comments.
