Via Reddit, folks with Delta AMEX credit cards can earn a higher referral bonus when they send referral links to friends and family.

Instead of the normal 5,000 Delta miles bonus, you can earn 10,000 Delta miles when a friend is approved for a card through a special referral link.

Plus, you’ll be referring friends and family to excellent deals.  Because the Delta AMEX personal cards and small business cards have increased sign-up bonuses for a limited time!

An Extra 10,000 Delta Miles Can Go Towards a Business Class Award Flight on Delta or Partner Airlines!

I’ll explain more about the Delta referral bonus!

Earn 10,000 Delta Miles With Referral Bonus

Link:   10,000 Delta Mile Referral Bonus

Existing AMEX Delta cardholders can earn 10,000 Delta miles when friends or family are approved for the same card through their referral link.  You can earn up to a maximum of 55,000 Delta miles for referrals in a calendar year.

Eligible AMEX Delta cards include:

And these cards are all offering higher sign-up bonuses!  Here are my reviews of the limited time increased offers for the small business cards and the personal cards.

Plus, with the referral links, the folks you refer will have more time to apply for the increased offers.  Because the referral offers are good until February 1, 2017.  Meanwhile, the public offers are only available until November 9, 2016!

At a minimum, you can redeem the 10,000 Delta miles toward paid tickets a rate of 1 cent per mile.  This means the referral bonus is worth $100.

But there are many ways to book Delta award flights where you could get 2 cents per mile.  This way the bonus is worth ~$200!

Bottom Line

You can earn 10,000 Delta miles when a friend or family member is approved for an AMEX Delta card through your referral link by February 1, 2017.

Remember, you can also earn referral bonuses on other AMEX small business cards!

Emily and I won’t earn a commission when you apply through a referral link.  But we’ll gladly give up our commission so that folks can earn bonus Delta miles!

  1. Question: I have the plat business and want to refer my wife for the gold business. I don’t have the latter. Is this possible? They show all four links after logging in, so it looks possible. Thanks.

  2. If anyone wants a referral for the Amex Delta Gold, please let me know. The 10000 bonus points is still active if you refer using the app. Thanks

  3. If anyone needs a referral for 70k bonus points on 4k spending within the first 4 months as well as 10k MQMs and a $100 delta statement credit to use towards flights please email me!
