Million Mile Secrets reader Dana comments:

I’m still pretty new to miles so wondering if I already have the AMEX Delta personal card and get approved for the AMEX Delta business card, will I still get the sign-up bonus?  Or is it considered the same product?

The sign-up bonus on the AMEX Gold Delta personal, AMEX Gold Delta business, and AMEX Platinum Delta personal cards has increased to 50,000 Delta miles through September 8, 2014.  To get the bonus, spend $1,000 in purchases with your new card within 3 months.

If Dana Already Has the AMEX Gold Delta Personal Card, Can She Still Get The Sign-Up Bonus for the AMEX Gold Delta Business Card?

Yes, she can!

Dana can apply for the AMEX Gold Delta Business card if she has a business.  Many folks don’t realize that they qualify for a business credit card.  So check out my post on 3 Ways You May Qualify for a Business Card.  But don’t lie!

If Dana signs-up for the AMEX Gold Delta Business card by September 8, 2014, she will get 50,000 Delta miles when she spends $1,000 within 3 months.  This is an increase from the previous 30,000 Delta Airlines miles sign-up bonus.

Here are some of the other perks that come with this card:

  • $50 statement credit after 1st Delta Airlines purchase
  • 1st checked bag free for you and 8 others traveling on the same reservation
  • Priority boarding
  • 20% off in-flight purchases (food, drink, and entertainment)
  • $95 annual fee is waived the 1st year
  • Terms & conditions apply

And the business card won’t impact Dana’s credit as much as a personal card, because your business credit line and spending are NOT reported to the 3 major credit bureaus.

Yes, You Can Get the Bonus If You Already Have the Personal Card

American Express considers the personal and business versions of a card to be 2 different products.

So Dana should be able to get the 50,000 Delta Airlines miles with the AMEX Gold Delta Business card when she completes the minimum spending (as long as she is approved for the card).

Bottom Line

You can now get 50,000 Delta Airlines miles with the AMEX Gold Delta Business card and 2 other Delta Airlines credit cards for a limited time.

If you’ve already received the sign-up bonus for the AMEX Gold Delta personal card, you could be able to get the sign-up bonus for the business card.

Getting the business and personal version of the same card means more Big Travel with Small Money!

Can I apply for Amex Business Gold and Amex Business Platinum and get both the bonuses ?

I closed my delta business card 1.5+ years ago, can I get the delta bonus again for my new business?

Million Mile Secrets

@Dana - Congrats and thanks for your kind words!

@Everett - I'd click on the application and see if it suggests additional restrictions for you.

@Trevor - According to the current terms, you may be able to. But double check the terms.

Anybody applied for the Delta Gold and gotten the bonus while having another AMEX personal card? I have the SPG and the AMEX website said current american express card holders may not be eligible. I hate to get the card and then find out its not eligible for the bonus. I'm thinking I'll probably wait until next year after I have cancelled my SPG card.

Thanks so much Daraius! I went through with the application and was instantly approved. Your blog has been most helpful to someone like myself who is new to this miles "game". Thank you so much for all of the great info!

Hi, I have a Gold Delta card. I called American Express for something else, and somehow they got me into applying a Platinum Delta ( personal ). Got approved for the $195 fee, which is still worth it for 50,000 miles. AX personnel explained that you can still get a Platinum Delta even if you have a Gold Delta. AX treats them as two different products.
