American Express previously announced that they will limit transfers to Delta starting January 1. But, they changed their mind.
I think Delta awards tickets are too expensive so I probably would not transfer my points but sometimes they have the best routing to where I want to go.
If you were planning to transfer Amex points before the deadline, no need to rush now.
Got Amex Points to burn? Here's a much better transfer promotion if you have a lot of Amex points: 40% Transfer Bonus to British Airways Avios
Here is the message from American Express reversing course:
