There is an increased sign-up bonus on 3 AMEX Delta cards and now here’s more ways to earn Delta miles!
If you haven’t signed-up for Delta’s Rewards Network dining program, you can get 2,500 Delta miles through August 31, 2014.
This is an increase from the old sign-up bonus which was 2,000 Delta miles.
New members can also get a sign-up bonus of 2,000 miles with the American Airlines dining program and a sign-up bonus of 1,500 miles with the United Airlines dining program.
You can earn the sign-up bonus with all 3 airline dining programs as long as you have a different credit card registered to each account.
How Do You Get the Delta Miles?

Step 1 – Sign-Up for the Delta Dining Program
Create a new account for free by August 31, 2014.
If you check the box giving permission for Rewards Network to email you special offers, you will earn 3X miles per dollar spent at participating restaurants, bars, and clubs.
It’s a good idea to have a junk email address, so you can take advantage of deals like this without filling up your personal inbox.
If you don’t want to receive the emails, you will still earn 2X miles when you dine at a Rewards Network location.
Step 2 – Enter Your Credit Card Number
Next, enter your credit card number. This is the card you will use when you dine.
I like using my Chase Sapphire Preferred card with Rewards Network because it gives me 2X points on dining. So you could earn as much as 7X points (2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points with Chase Sapphire Preferred and up to 5X Delta miles with Rewards Network) at Rewards Network restaurants, bars, and night clubs.
Note: You must use a different credit card for each program. If you register the same card for different programs, you’ll only earn points and miles in the last program you signed-up for.
Step 3 – Spend $30 Within 30 Days
Rewards Network has over 10,000 participating restaurants, bars, and clubs.
To get the 2,500 Delta miles, spend $30 (including tax & tip) on a single dine at a Rewards Network location with your registered credit card. You have 30 days from signing-up to eat and drink your way to bonus Delta miles.
Step 4 – Review the Restaurant
Rewards Network will email you survey that you must complete within 30 days of dining.
You should receive your 2,500 Delta miles within 4 to 6 weeks!
New members can now get an increased bonus of 2,500 Delta miles when they
sign-up for the Delta Rewards Network dining program, spend at least $30 at a participating location, and complete a short restaurant review.
The sign-up bonus for 3 AMEX Delta cards has also increased to 50,000 Delta miles when you spend $1,000 within 3 months (Terms & conditions apply). So there are lots of ways to earn Delta miles right now!
