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.
I’ll explain more about the Delta referral bonus!
Earn 10,000 Delta Miles With 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:
- Gold Delta SkyMiles Business
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business
- Gold Delta SkyMiles
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles
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!
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!
