Need More Delta Points?
Delta releases award sales fairly often. This year, we’ve seen sales to:
If you need more Delta miles, the easiest way to get them is from credit card sign-up bonuses. There are several AMEX credit cards that earn Delta miles. Here are the best ways to prepare for the next Delta award sale!
1. Sign-Up for Delta Credit Cards
All 4 AMEX Delta credit cards have increased sign-up bonuses. The Delta Gold personal and business credit cards are both offering 50,000 Delta miles after meeting minimum spending requirements. And the Delta Platinum personal and business credit cards are both offering 70,000 Delta miles after meeting minimum spending requirements.
2. Sign-Up for These AMEX Cards
There are currently increased offers on 2 AMEX Business cards! The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN comes with up to 100,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after meeting minimum spending requirements. And The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN gives you 50,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after meeting minimum spending requirements.
AMEX Membership Rewards points transfer to Delta at a ratio of 1:1. So Applying for these cards would give you 150,000 Delta points!
The Starwood Preferred Guest personal and business cards also earn points that can be transferred to Delta at a ratio of 1:1. But you’ll get a bonus 5,000 Delta miles when you transfer in increments of 20,000!
Many folks may qualify for small business cards even if they don’t think they do. If you have a for-profit venture, like selling items on eBay, tutoring, or coaching, you can likely get approved for a small business card.
Remember, American Express only allows folks to get the sign-up bonus ONCE per person, per lifetime on ALL their cards. So make sure to only sign-up for cards you haven’t previously held.
