New Delta Amex Offers With Up to $ 500 in Statement Credits Now on Personal Cards Also
Like the Delta Business Amex cards, the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express and the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express have also launched some intriguing new offers today which will last until August 15th.
While they have typically offered either 70,000 miles or miles plus MQMs, if you aren’t in need of MQMs and plan to book some upcoming travel on Delta, you could easily net 50,000 miles which I value at 1.2 cents each or $600 plus $500 in statement credits for a total of $1,100 worth of welcome bonuses.
It’s much better than the small one off statement credit offers they have had in the past.
This card has a $195 annual fee but does include the annual companion certificate which tends to make the fee a wash.
The annual fee of $95 on this card is waived for the first year and if you max out the welcome bonuses, this would represent a value of about $660.
On both cards, they will take up 5/24 slots, so take that into consideration. It’s worth thinking about each Delta card in turn as you can get the bonus on each of them once per lifetime – but only once you are over 5/24.
For some, maxing out miles is the most important. For others, bonus MQMs on the Platinum version is a big deal. And for some, it’s just about total value – and these offers, especially the Platinum one, are not bad at all.
Both offers expire August 15th.
