I don’t pay a ton of attention to Delta both because their flights aren’t usually helpful for me as a Houston based flyer, and because their frequent flyer program isn’t fantastic for many of my purposes. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t value in the Delta program from time to time. I’ve easily ignored the 30,000 or 35,000 mile Delta Amex sign-up bonuses I have seen in my inbox over the years. However, today’s offer of 50,000 miles on the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card after making just $1,000 in purchases in the first three months got my attention.
I can do a lot with 50,000 miles, or use it as a starting off point and add to it by transferring Delta miles from the Amex Membership Rewards program at a 1:1 ratio (more if a transfer bonus comes back). This offer also comes with a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with the card within the first three months. There is a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $95 in subsequent years.
Since Amex personal offers now state that “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product” then you really better be darn sure you are pulling the trigger when the offers are at their highs, or you are really leaving points on the table. The business version of this offer says that Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product within the last 12 months.
Both are limited time offers available until September 8, 2014. I’m personally going to sit on this one a bit and think since I just pulled the trigger on a limited time United card offer, and I am still finishing up the spending on the now defunct Citi Advantage Executive 100,000 mile offer. I don’t want to get overwhelmed with too many new cards at once, but this is certainly an offer worth considering as the public offer hasn’t been this high in a while.
In case you are curious, this is not an affiliate offer, just a good offer that I thought was worth considering.
