If you’ve been on the fence about the any one of the Delta credit card offers, now’s the time to apply.

Through October 30, 2019, all three of the personal Amex Delta cards are offering increased welcome bonuses:

These offers will get you a minimum $600-$750 in savings, if you use Delta’s Pay With Miles feature. Here’s what you need to know.

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 Delta Gold card

The Amex Delta Gold personal card has a welcome bonus of 60,000 Delta miles after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening and up to $50 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 Delta Platinum card

You can earn 75,000 Delta miles and 5,000 MQMs when you open an Amex Delta Platinum personal card and spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening. You also earn up to $100 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:

  • 2x Delta miles per dollar spent on Delta, including flights booked on Delta.com, Sky Club membership or passes, Delta Vacations packages, upgrades, or in-flight purchases
  • 1 Delta mile per dollar spent on everything else
  • 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

3.  Amex Delta Reserve card

You can earn 75,000 Delta miles and 10,000 MQMs when you open an Amex Delta Reserve card and spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening.

You’ll also get perks like:

  • 2X Delta miles on qualifying Delta purchases
  • 1 Delta mile per $1 on all other eligible purchases
  • Complimentary Delta SkyClub lounge access (normally costs $545)
  • Delta Companion Certificate (valid for domestic Delta flights in First Class, Delta Comfort+, or Main Cabin) after renewing the card
  • First checked bag free for you and up to 8 companions traveling on the same reservation
  • Priority boarding for you and up to 8 companions traveling on the same reservation
  • Terms and limitations apply

The Delta Reserve card is Delta’s premium personal card and comes with a $450 annual fee (see rates & fees).

Are these offers worth it?

Because you can redeem Delta miles for 1 cent each using Pay with Miles, these welcome bonuses are worth between $600 and $750 at a bare minimum. If you’re using your miles for award seats, they’ll be worth much more.

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.

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.
