Delta Private Jets Savings

$250,000 Jet Card

  • 2 Diamond Medallion memberships = $17,370

Choose two of the below:

  • 3% bonus funds = $7,500
  • 4 nights at Exclusive Resorts = $5,540
  • Mac Book Pro = $1,299

Maximum Value at $250,000:

To maximize value, the best deal would be to take the funds bonus ($7,500) and four nights at Exclusive Resorts ($5,540), combined with the $17,370 value of Diamond status.

Clearly a big part of how you see the offer is how much value you put on Diamond membership as that is more than half of the calculation. At 12.1% however, the offer is significantly higher than what we normally see, typically around 4%.

Maximum value = $30,41 on a $250,000 jet card is a 12.1% bonus

$175,000 Jet Card

  • 1 Diamond Medallion memberships = $8,685

Choose two of the below:

  • 2% bonus funds = $3,500
  • 3 nights at Exclusive Resorts = $4,155
  • Mac Book Pro = $1,299

Again, sorry Applee fans, but you are best to redeem the three nights at Exclusive Resorts ($4,155) and bonus funds ($3,500). Added to the Diamond membership ($8,685), you get $16,340 or a 9.3% bonus.

Maximum value = $16,340 on a $175,000 is a 9.3% bonus
