Delta has announced a new benefit for American Express cardholders called TakeOff 15. Cardholders of a co-branded Delta American Express card will receive 15% off award flights when redeeming miles on Delta.

The discount will be applied automatically when logged into your SkyMiles account and searching for award flights as a cardholder. The discounted award prices are only for Delta operated flights, so partner redemptions aren’t eligible.

How To Get This Discount:

  1. Search for Award Travel by selecting “Shop with Miles†in the search criteria on delta.com or in the Fly Delta app. Be sure to log into your SkyMiles account before searching for best results.

You’ll see the 15% discount applies to all fare classes including Basic, Main, Comfort + and Delta One in the above example. Both one-way flights and round-trips are eligible for the discounted award pricing.

The discount above is for a roundtrip flight from New York (JFK) to London (LHR) on a Delta operated flight both ways. The discounted awards don’t apply for partner airlines, so when searching to London, you won’t see the discount apply to Virgin Atlantic flights.

Depending on how many miles you redeem annually, this new perk should save you several thousand SkyMiles each year.
