$800 would be a lot to spend on one trip, but the good news is that you don't have to! The terms require you to spend "a minimum of $800+ in one or more transactions." And, more than just flight purchases count toward that spending goal. The following add-on fees specifically qualify: upgrade fees, seat selection fees, baggage fees and even Sky Club memberships — as long as "Delta Air Lines is the merchant of record."

If you register for the offer today, you have two months to meet this spending requirement. And, you don't even have to fly by October 7 — you just need to make the purchase(s) by then.

The good news is that you'll still earn 5x Membership Rewards points for these flights if you have this offer on your Platinum Card from American Express, as the purchase will be made directly with the airline.
