…but this offer is only available while supplies last, as it is limited only to the first 500 purchasers during the qualifying period. Additionally, only customers older than the age of 18 — or of legal age in their state of residence, if different — with a billing address in the United States are eligible to participate in this offer.

The $50.00 promotional gift cards are made from aluminum cut from various locations on the fuselage and tail of the McDonnell Douglas DC-9 aircraft. As a result, each gift card will be unique in color, texture, and thickness; and each gift card may look slightly different from the card pictured in the photographs. The front of the gift card you receive may be white, blue, or metallic in color; and the back may be metallic or coated with the original green zinc chromate anti-corrosion primer.

All gift cards are laser-etched with identifying details and an outline of the aircraft on the front — as well a unique sequence number ranging from 1 to 2,500. The laser etching on the back will display the redemption details — including the number of the gift card, its redemption code, and its terms and conditions.

As part of an effort to reduce its capacity throughout its system due to a substantial drop in demand as a result of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic, an announcement from Delta Air Lines revealed that the fleet of McDonnell Douglas aircraft comprised of MD-88 and MD-90 airplanes were to be retired earlier than previously planned effective as of June of 2020. Those airplanes were also colloquially known as mad dogs by frequent fliers and aviation enthusiasts.

Select Terms and Conditions

Limit one bonus gift card per customer. Eligible customers will earn one bonus Delta Air Lines gift card per qualifying transaction — regardless of the number of Delta Air Lines gift cards purchased in the transaction. The customer will automatically be opted in to the promotion if shopping on the Promotional website. The promotional $50.00 Delta Air Lines gift card is a limited-edition physical gift card.

The promotional $50.00 Delta Air Lines gift card will be mailed to the billing address of the eligible purchaser inputted at time of purchase; and will be sent separately from other Delta Air Lines gift card(s) purchased in the same transaction.

This gift card is not to be altered in any way from its current state and should not be used for any purpose other than as a gift card for purchase of a future Delta Air Lines flight or as a commemorative collector’s item. Delta Air Lines is not responsible for any harm or damage that may occur due to misuse, chipping, scratching or other alterations to the gift card.

This offer is non-transferable. Delta Gift Cards cannot be refunded once they are purchased; and they have no expiration date.

Offers void where prohibited by law. Other terms, conditions, and restrictions — including those of gift cards from Delta Air Lines — apply.

Once the value of the special edition gift card is exhausted, it becomes a souvenir which is actually free of charge if you intended on spending a minimum of $500.00 with Delta Air Lines in the future anyway — and you get $50.00 in addition to spend on a flight with Delta Air Lines, which is not a bad deal at all.

If the limited edition Delta Air Lines gift card is popular enough to become a collector’s item, it may possibly be worth more than $50.00.
