As I posted about yesterday, the increased sign-up bonuses on the Delta American Express Cards will be pulled today, around 10AM PT. Like everyone else, I tend to procrastinate a bit, but my family has finally submitted all their applications for Delta American Express cards, including a few this morning. Now that all the applications have been submitted, I figured I’d go over what we did, given American Express’ limit of four credit cards and four charge cards per person.
As a reminder, the following cards have increased sign-up bonuses of 50,000-60,000 miles:
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card From American Express
A couple of weeks back I applied for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Card. That’s because I had the Gold Delta SkyMiles Personal Card in the past, and had three other American Express credit cards, including the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express, and Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card. I’ve had all three of those cards for a while and am not willing to cancel any of them.
I applied in mid-June, and the miles already posted.
As I explained in a previous post, Ford applied for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Personal Card and Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Card, and had no problem getting approved for both. He has already had the 100,000 Delta SkyMiles post.
My mom’s applications
The only American Express credit card my mom has in her name is the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express, so for her we applied for both the Gold Delta SkyMiles Personal Card and Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Card. She was instantly approved for the personal card, and as usual, has been delayed for the business card, but should hopefully get approved in a few days.
My dad’s application
Much like me, my dad has the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express, and Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card. That means he could apply for one more American Express card, since he uses the other three cards on a daily basis.
This morning he applied for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Personal Card, and was instantly approved.
All-in-all, that’s a total of six Delta credit cards for us, totaling 300,000 SkyMiles. I’m impressed by how quickly the miles are posting, before the statement even closes.
There are lots of great uses of SkyMiles, so we’re certainly excited to redeem them.
What Delta Amex cards did you end up applying for, if any?
