INSIDER SECRET: Delta doesn’t have an award chart, but there frequently are all sorts of advertised (and unadvertised) SkyMiles award sales.

If you’ve been on the fence about these unique Delta credit card offers, this is your last chance to apply because these deals are disappearing  on August 15, 2019:

These statement credits are earned as a 50% rebate on eligible Delta purchases, which includes airfare. So these offers could get you $600-$1,000 in savings, if you use Delta’s Pay With Miles feature. You’d also have to earn the bonus miles within the first three months of account opening, but in my experience the bonuses on Amex cards post in a few days after you meet the spending requirement.

The miles you earn with these Delta credit card offers can be super useful, recently there were round-trip award flights to London for only 22,00 miles. (Photo by Sven Hansche/Shutterstock)

New Increased Amex Delta Credit Card Offers

If you decide to apply for any of these cards just remember, Amex only allows folks to earn the welcome bonus once per person, per lifetime, on all their cards. But because these Delta cards are considered different products, if you’ve had one, you can still get the others.

1.  Amex Personal Delta Gold Card

 Apply for the Amex Gold Delta credit card

The Amex Delta Gold personal card has a welcome bonus of 30,000 Delta miles after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening and up to $300 in statement credits for Delta purchases made directly with Delta within the same time frame.

You’ll also get:

  • One free checked bag for yourself and up to eight traveling companions on the same reservation
  • 2 miles per $1 spent with Delta
  • 1 mile per $1 spent on everything else
  • 20% discount on certain Delta inflight purchases in the form of a statement credit
  • Priority boarding
  • Discount on Delta SkyClub lounge passes
  • Pay With Miles (each point worth 1 cent)
  • No foreign transaction fees (See Rates & Fees)
  • Terms and limitations apply

The card has a $95 annual fee, but it’s waived the first year (See Rates & Fees)

2.  Amex Business Delta Gold Credit Card

You can apply for the Amex Gold Delta Business credit card

The Amex Delta Gold business card has a welcome bonus of 30,000 Delta miles after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening and up to $300 in statement credits for Delta purchases made directly with Delta within the same time frame.

You’ll also get the same perks as the personal Amex Delta Gold card. The card’s $95 annual fee is waived the first year (See Rates & Fees).

3.  Amex Personal Delta Platinum Card

You can apply for the Amex Platinum Delta card here

You can earn 50,000 Delta miles when you open an Amex Delta Platinum personal card and spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening. You can also earn up to $500 in statement credits for Delta purchases made directly with Delta in the same time frame.

The cards come with the same perks as the Amex Delta Gold card, plus:

  • Domestic round-trip companion certificate each year on your card anniversary
  • 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles and 10,000 bonus miles when you spend $25,000+ in a calendar year. And an additional 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles and 10,000 bonus miles when you spend $50,000 in the same time frame
  • $195 annual fee, not waived the first year  (See Rates & Fees)
  • Terms and limitations apply

4.  Amex Business Delta Platinum Credit Card

You can apply for the Amex Platinum Delta business card here

You can earn 50,000 Delta miles when you open an Amex Delta Platinum business card and spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening.  You can also earn up to $500 in statement credits for Delta purchases made directly with Delta  in the same time frame.

The cards come with the same perks as the personal Amex Delta Platinum card. The card has a $195 annual fee (See Rates & Fees) that is not waived the first year.

Are These Offers Worth It?

These welcome bonuses are worth at least $600 to $800, once you include the high annual fee (not waived) on the Delta Platinum cards. That’s because you can redeem Delta miles for 1 cent each using Pay with Miles. But we’ve seen offers for 60,000 to 80,000 miles with statement credits of $50-$100 not that long ago and those extra Delta miles can be more valuable than the increased statement credits that are available with these new deals.

Delta also offers frequent Delta SkyMiles deals which can help you stretch the value of your miles further. For example, recently you could fly to Europe for as little as 20,000 SkyMiles round-trip in coach. A ticket like this could easily cost $500+, giving you a value of 2.5 cents per mile — much higher than the rate you’ll get by using Pay with Miles.

Another nice thing is that Delta miles never expire. It’s a nice feature that very few frequent-flyer programs offer.

The biggest downside to the Delta statement credits is you have to earn them within the first three months of having the card and they aren’t straight credits — you’ll only get 50% back up to the maximum credit. However, if you spent a lot of cash on Delta flights it shouldn’t be hard to earn the full credit.

Any guesses on what this offer will be after 8/15? I’d much rather a higher points offer (60k/70k). Anyone have a referral link for one of those?

In May I was approved for the Delta Gold card. Today I discovered that my offer bonus expired 8/3/2019. I was only $26 short. Is there any way I can convince Amex to give me the offer bonus?

Update,

I received my welcome bonus. Thanks to Amex online chat.

Glad to hear this worked out.

In my opinion, Amex has one of the best customer service levels out there.

Ouch, that’s unfortunate.

I would say call them. Technically you didn’t meet the requirements for the minimum spend, so it doesn’t hurt to call and ask for an exception or goodwill bonus.

If I already have the Delta platinum card, can I apply for it again, and get these bonuses?

Hi Michael,

If you’ve earned the bonus before, then you won’t be able to earn another welcome bonus. With Amex, you can only earn a bonus once per card, per lifetime.

Where do you find these Delta award sales? I’m a platinum skymiles card holder, about 9 years. Facebook? Twitter? Email? Website?

You find them on your account. Go to American Express website and look under the menu, CARDS and it will tell you if you have a welcome bonus.
