Update:   This offer is no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers.

Via MileValue, the American Express Delta card with a 70,000 mile sign-up bonus and a $100 statement credit is back!

You earn 25,000 miles after your 1st purchase and and another 45,000 Delta miles after spending $5,000 within 6 months.

I wrote about this offer previously and mentioned that some of you will feel uncomfortable with changing the URL to this offer, while some won’t.  As always, do what you feel comfortable with.

Online Travel Review has simple instructions on how to get the offer to show up.

This is much better than my regular affiliate links offering 30,000 miles after spending $500, though there are slightly better non-affiliate link offering 30,000 miles & a $50 statement credit, which of course I’ve listed on the Airline Credit Card tab.

At the very least, you can redeem 70,000 Delta miles for $700 in travel on ANY delta flight using the Pay with Miles feature of the American Express Delta card.

If you do apply for this take lots of screenshots of the offer and the sign-up bonus. Please be extra careful to check the terms when you apply!

In other credit card news, the Chase Air Tran offer went public with a 16 Air Tran credit sign-up offer, which isn’t very exciting.  I’d be a lot more excited if the 32 credit targeted offer which I wrote about a few days ago went public!

Will they honor the bonus if you’re using someone else’s targeted link? 50k/1k

@ Daraius

I just wanted to say that a couple of weeks ago I got a targeted offer in the mail for an AMEX Delta. In my case it was 50,000 miles after spending $1,000 over a 3 month period. That makes it a better option than the typical 30,000 miles offer and I think that $1,000/3 months might be easier to reach for several people than $5,000/6 months. Unfortunately I am unaware of a link for this offer, but perhaps others were targeted too.

@Jameson – That’s a great offer, but it sucks that they pulled it out from under you. I don’t know if they will match the offer (I’d say no), but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Perhaps you’ll get more apology miles from it!

@Alex
– That’s a good offer as well, and the relatively low minimum spending requirement is great. Thanks for sharing!

My wife got a targeted delta amex gold offer for 75k miles after 10k$ spend in August (25k miles after first purchase and 50k miles after 10k$ within 6 months). We called recently to verify the offer terms, and they said it was only 45k miles now. In fact, before the CSR let us talk, she went on and on for a minute about how she has never seen such an amazing offer, and told us how lucky we should feel. I think this was just the setup because she could see that they downgraded the offer. We told them we have screenshots and they said it doesn’t matter, not even a manager could change it back to the one we originally signed up for. They were willing to give us 2500 apology miles, and they said that was the max they could do. Looks like David got 5000 courtesy miles. Sounds like it’s time to call back until we talk to the right CSR. Is there anything else we should be fighting for besides getting the original offer reinstated e.g. lowering the minimum spend to 5k$ or adding the 100$ statement credit? Would they be willing to match this most recent offer?

Thanks to your suggestion, I got the Amex gold business card (no set limit) and was able to put $10k in 3 mths.

I have 3 other credit cards with approx $10-$20k limits each which I haven’t used at all in the last 2 mths.

I got a credit sesame account. My Credit score showed excellent but my debt was very poor – ” Careful! Your credit card balances are higher than your peers.”

I was trying to meet spending reqs on business amex gold card which does not have any limit. Any thoughts why I got a poor rating?

@Pam – If your credit score is good, you may want to look at your official credit report (you can get 1 per year for free) to see if there are any high balances appearing on the report. I wouldn’t worry much if your credit score is good.

Is there anyway to contact Amex and get them to honor this offer as the link seems dead? I called Amex’s online approval group and they had never heard of the 70/$5k offer and had no suggestions who to call.

@Ron – Unfortunately, there is no way to call and get matched.
