If you’re struggling to find a holiday gift for the frequent traveler in your life (or want to treat yourself to a trip), Delta Air Lines has a sweet last-minute promotion on gift cards. While supplies last, you can earn a $25 Hotels.com gift card when you purchase $250 in Delta gift cards.

To qualify for the $25 Hotels.com gift card, you must make a purchase of at least $250 in Delta gift cards through the promotion website. The terms and conditions don’t state a limit to the number of gift cards you can purchase — only that you’ll earn a Hotels.com gift card for each $250 in Delta gift cards you buy.

You’ll see the Hotels.com gift card in your shopping cart before you confirm the purchase:

There’s no end date listed for the promotion, but the terms and conditions state the offer is subject to availability while supplies last, and is limited to the first 760 purchasers during the qualifying period. Additionally:

  • Only U.S. residents over 18 years of age are eligible
  • This offer is not transferable
  • The Hotels.com gift card will be emailed separately to the purchaser (not to the recipient of the Delta gift cards)
  • Hotels.com $25 eGift cards don’t expire but you must redeem them for new hotel bookings only at www.hotels.com/gc
  • Only one gift card can be redeemed per online booking, but multiple gift cards may be combined into one gift card by visiting the balance transfer tab found at www.hotels.com/gcbalance

This promotion is a little different because the purchase is processed by Cashstar on behalf of Delta, so you won’t earn bonus points or miles on travel if you use a card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve. Instead, to maximize your rewards, consider using one of these cards:

  • Chase Freedom Unlimited — Earn 1.5% cash back (1.5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar) on purchases
  • Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card — Earn 2X Capital One Venture Rewards miles per dollar on purchases
  • The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express — No annual fee (see rates and fees): Earn 2X Amex Membership Rewards points per dollar on the first $50,000 in purchases each calendar year, then 1X
  • Bank of America® Premium Rewards® credit card — Earn 1.5 points per dollar on purchases (with up to a 75% bonus depending on your status in the Preferred Rewards program)
  • Citi® Double Cash Card — Earn 2% cash back (1% when you buy, plus 1% as you pay)
