I should NOT be surprised. But I am!
An incredible number of y’all have gone ahead and taken advantage of the very generous Delta AMEX offers that expire tomorrow, November 8, 2017. It makes sense because the welcome bonus is TWICE as high as usual!
I love that folks will use the bonus for Big Travel, like a Business Class flight to exciting places like Athens, Istanbul, and Paris. These flights can easily cost $3,000 each!
On the other hand, for Million Mile Secret Agents who do NOT like fussing with award booking, you can use Delta Pay With Miles to get flights with no blackout dates!
Here are the most important details for those of y’all are procrastinators like me. 🙂
Increased AMEX Delta Sign-Up Bonuses Disappear Tomorrow
The increased sign-up bonuses on the AMEX Delta Gold and Platinum personal and small business cards are ending tomorrow, November 8, 2017.
These current deals are TWICE as high as the normal sign-up bonus. So if you haven’t opened any of these AMEX Delta cards in the past, they’re worth considering.
You can use Delta miles for expensive flights on partner airlines like Air France, China Eastern, and Hawaiian Airlines.
And because you can redeem Delta miles for 1 cent each using Pay with Miles, you’ll get a minimum of $600 to $700 from each bonus. With this method, you won’t have to worry about blackout dates and searching for available award seats.
Note: AMEX only allows you to earn 1 sign-up bonus per credit card product per lifetime. So if you’ve already opened the AMEX Delta Gold personal card, you’re NOT eligible for that bonus again. But you CAN earn the bonus on the AMEX Delta Gold small business card, because it’s a different credit card product!
Through tomorrow, November 8, 2017, you’ll earn 60,000 Delta miles with the AMEX Delta Gold personal and small business cards after completing the cards’ minimum spending. And 70,000 Delta miles with the AMEX Delta Platinum personal and small business cards. after completing minimum spending requirements.
The sign-up bonuses are worth at least $600 or $700 when you book using Pay With Miles. And could be worth even more when you book award flights on Delta or their partner airlines!
