100% bonus on purchased Delta miles for American Express cardmembers

American Express Airlines Delta is offering a 100% bonus on miles purchased using the Delta SkyMiles American Express credit card through June 30. That brings the cost per mile down to 1.4 cents. Also keep in mind that you can purchase a maximum of 60,000 SkyMiles per year. Don’t get me wrong, this is far from a deal, but for those looking to top off accounts, this is hard to beat at the moment. I know many are trying to top off their accounts right now to redeem for Singapore Airlines first class awards through May 15, which is really the only reason I’m mentioning this.


  1. Another great use is for close-in award travel. Many 25K domestic coach awards are available 1-7 days out that replace tickets that would cost $500+ otherwise. If you can get 2+ cents per mile by redeeming for a flight you need, it’s worth purchasing at 1.4 cents per mile. Simple.
