Travejunkie8 posted a link on FlyerTalk to a 70,000 miles Delta credit card which also offers a $100 statement credit after making a purchase from Delta within the first 3  months.

However, you can NOT apply using the link above because it doesn’t let you fill in your name!  But read the directions on this FlyerTalk thread to see if you can replicate the offer for yourself.

 

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

The terms say  that the “Offer [is] not available to existing Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers upgrading to another Delta SkyMiles Credit Card.”

The usual offer is for about 30,000 miles and Emily got an offer for 40,000 miles in the mail today.

Delta miles aren’t the easiest to use, but you should be able to get at least 1 or 2 domestic tickets with 70,000 miles.  70,000 miles is a lot better than the usual offer for 30,000 miles!  In fact, I can’t recollect seeing an offer for 370,000 miles before.

Delta miles are also very useful for visiting French Polynesia since both Air Tahiti Nui and Air France partner with Delta.

If you do apply for this offer, remember that this isn’t my link so takes lots of screenshots and confirm the sign-up bonus when you activate the card.

My referral link is for only 30,000 Delta miles (which I’ve always thought to be a poor value so I haven’t written a blog post about it), and there already was a better offer for 30,000 Delta miles + $50 statement credit which didn’t pay me a referral and which was listed on the Airline credit card tab.

Keep in mind that American Express sometimes doesn’t give you the full sign-on bonus if you applied for an offer for which you weren’t targeted.  For example, some readers did not get the 50,000 point Hilton sign-on bonus, but instead got 40,000 points.

That said, I suspect this offer is a bit different since you access the 70,000 mile offer by buying a ticket on the Delta website, so Delta doesn’t know if you were targeted or not!

Thanks again to the folks on FlyerTalk for ferreting this out!

Got the 70,000 miles and just had a nice surprise with the $100 statement credit, which I had forgotten about. I upgraded my seat on an upcoming Christmas flight to Economy Comfort for $29 and a $100 credit just posted! Pretty great. Now have to figure out how to use the Skypesos…

Anyone know if there is also a business version of this offer as well? 140k miles would go a long way. Literally!

@Joey – I don’t believe there is a business version.

Million Miles is Best Blog..No Jargon right to the point..

@Nikhil – Thanks! Glad that worked out, but please let us know if you get the 70K miles.

Thank you again for a great opportunity to earn miles with the Delta deal!

@Jesse and Read–If you miss deals because bloggers are sharing information you better read blogs earlier in the day before a deal dies. Or I guess you could start a member-only board yourself and keep all the deals for your members only.

I think you are not wrong to post this. It’s been all over the blogosphere. I just want to figure out if wifey can get it if she had gold amex recently and how to do it.

I think the 45k should be slam dunk but the 25k up front might not be.

Is it worth an inquiry?????

@asdfasdfas – Only you can decide if it is worth an inquiry. If she recently had the Gold AMEX it could be hard to get the bonus again – but the terms and conditions are very vague, so it is difficult to interpret.

@Shari – You’re welcome!
