On the personal AND business cards, get 50,000 Delta SkyMiles after spending $2,000 in 3 months of card opening. That’s an average of only $22/day. Use the credit card to pay bills that you otherwise would have paid using cash or check. Use the miles to take free round trips! Check out: 11 Ways To Meet A Spending Requirement.
Also get $50 statement credit if you make a Delta purchase during that time. The annual fee ($95) is waived the first year. No Foreign Transaction fees. Earn a mile per every dollar in purchases, two miles for every dollar in Delta purchases. Free checked bag for up to 9 people in your party. At $50 per person per round trip, that is a HUGE savings. Priority Boarding. Miles never expire.
NOTE: You can only get the sign-up bonus once in a lifetime on PERSONAL Amex cards. The personal Gold Delta and Platinum cards are viewed as different products, so you can get the sign-up bonus once on each card.
You can receive the sign-up bonus again on an Amex BUSINESS card as long as it’s been 12 months since you closed your previous business card account. Not sure if you are a business? Check out my post: How to Fill Out a Business Credit Card Application
The Platinum Delta SkyMiles card will give you 60,000 miles and 10,000 Medallion Qualification miles after spending $2,000 in 3 months of opening the card. You will also get $100 statement credit if you make a Delta purchase during the same 3 months. Well, that’s better, right?? The annual fee ($195) is NOT waived the first year, but you get a domestic round-trip companion ticket every year on your card anniversary. Not too shabby, especially of you are trying to get elite status on Delta.
- Delta is the world’s largest airline
- You can use Delta SkyMiles anywhere they fly, as well as on their worldwide partner airlines
- Delta SkyMiles NEVER EXPIRE (unlike other airlines) – even if you cancel cards
- You can redeem Delta SkyMiles for a ticket in someone else’s name
- The small spending requirement and ability to try out the card is hard to resist
Delta now allows you to fly one way using approximately half the miles. I booked a flight using 12,500 Delta SkyMiles to fly one way from Tampa to Los Angeles.
If you like to collect miles for emergencies (which I highly recommend), read how I saved over $1,000 in Is A “Bereavement Fare” Fair?
