Holy smokes, the best keeps getting better! As they have done the last several summers, the family of Delta Amex credit cards has increased their sign-up bonuses for a limited time. The only difference is, now they have gone even higher with the bonus than they have in the past!


Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express: Earn 60,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 in the first 4 months + a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase in the first 4 months. $0 annual fee for the first year, then $95. Terms Apply.


Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express: Earn 70,000 bonus miles and 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) after you spend $4,000 in purchases in your first 4 months + $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase in the first 4 months. $195 annual fee. Terms Apply.


There are also small business versions of these card with very similar temporarily increased offers I’m sure you can find if you poke around the internet a bit. Note that all of the Delta Amex cards are considered unique products so you can get each one individually even if you have had a similar one in the past. However, each card does have the caveat: “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.” This means if you are looking to add a Delta Amex to your wallet, you probably want to pick one you haven’t had in the past.


If you are just starting out with the Delta Amex Cards I think the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card is a very good place to start since it gives not only 60,000 SkyMiles after you spend $3,000 in the first four months, it has a $0 introductory annual fee the first year…$95 in subsequent years.

If you have already had that card, or you simply fly Delta more often and therefore place value on the 10,000 elite qualifying miles you can receive along with the 70,000 SkyMiles after you spend $4,000 in the first four months with the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card, then that is the best play. It does carry a higher $195 annual fee, so it wouldn’t be the first card I would recommend for the occasional Delta flyer just starting out with SkyMiles, but it is still a very compelling offer with 70,000 miles and a $100 statement credit with a Delta purchase in the first 4 months!

Both the Gold and Platinum Delta Amex cards will give you and up to 8 others on the reservation a first checked bag for free on Delta flights, priorityZone 1  boarding, and discounted Delta Sky Club access for $29. However, the Platinum Delta Card also provides a pretty valuable companion certificate beginning with the first anniversary. The Companion Certificate is valid for one round-trip Main Cabin Companion ticket in L,U,T,X, or V classes of service with the payment of applicable taxes and fees within the 48 contiguous United States. Residents of Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico or the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) must originate from there to the 48 contiguous United States and have an address on their SkyMiles account in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico or the USVI. Each year, the Companion Certificate will be made available for redemption on delta.com in your renewal month.

Atlanta Terminal B Delta Sky Club

I’ve really enjoyed not only a recent visit to a gorgeous Delta Sky Club as shown above, but my three times flying Delta this year, and I was very grateful I had a Delta Amex and perks like priority boarding since I lack Delta status otherwise. I’ll post more about the different Delta Amex card perks and on maximizing SkyMiles soon, but for now know that these big offers are here for a limited time!

  1. It’s a little silly to get excited about these higher bonuses. Delta just did *another* massive devaluation regarding the value of their points and there is substantial risk that they do so again. The cards also have higher spending requirements than some of the previous ones.

    I realize you are trying to hawk these credit cards but you really should have mentioned this

    • I write extensively and frequently about how Delta has no award chart and can and does make big changes to award pricing and will write even more about how to use SkyMiles in the coming weeks, but… I actually just got big value from using my SkyMiles and think that 60k – 70k SkyMiles has very real value even though they certainly have devalued just as all the other similar carriers have as well. Even still, I fully intend on at least one of us in this house applying for one of these cards while the bonuses are increased and have no issue in recommending others do the same.

      • I’m sure everyone can find some “value” but you really should have mentioned the devaluations in this post as it makes the highest ever bonus meaningless

        Have you ever had these cards before? I thought you couldn’t get the bonus if applying again?

        • They are each unique products so having one in the past doesn’t prevent you from a different one. Not only that, but while I have had a couple in my history, my husband hasn’t yet…so he is the likely applicant, but who knows, it could be me.

  2. Cohagen(“I want to go to Mahs”…I assume your handle is borrowed from ‘Total Recall’), 70,000 SkyMiles and 10,000 MQM’s for $4K spend in 4 months is a damn good deal.
    Any flyer who uses Delta at all should be able to find some excellent value from these bonuses.
    And I venture to say that these Skymiles will be far easier to use than craptastic AA miles.

  3. I jumped on this deal over the weekend (gold). My first miles card! It looks like there’s a ton of value to be had for award travel within the U.S. Looking forward to your post on maximizing SkyMiles!

    • Congrats and promise that will come soon, though a big tip is to look for their flash sales that I try to write about every time I see them!

  4. Jumped on these offers last year when there where similar offers. Will pick up a couple business versions this time around between my wife and I. We just booked RT flights from Wisconsin to Grand Caymen for next January. Was 70,000 for 2 RT, cash cost was $1,400. Thought that was great value. Have given up on AA, crap flights or outrageous miles!

    • Yes! So good to have options, my only SkyMiles regrets have ever been that I didn’t have enough of them when I wanted them.

  5. Delta American Express Platinum 70k miles offer!!!
