Update: These offers for the Delta SkyMiles® Credit Cards from American Express are expired. Learn more about the current offer here.

Since late May, American Express has been offering the biggest ever sign-up bonuses on their co-brand Delta credit cards. These include the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card and Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card.

If you haven’t yet taken advantage of one of these offers, keep in mind that they expire tomorrow, July 5, 2017, so you have about 24 hours left to apply. As a reminder, the details of the bonuses are as follows:

  • The Gold Delta SkyMiles Card is offering 60,000 SkyMiles after spending $3,000 within four months, plus a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase within the first four months; the card’s $95 annual fee is waived for the first year
  • The Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card is offering 70,000 SkyMiles plus 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles after spending $4,000 within four months, plus a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase within the first four months; the card has a $195 annual fee

Even if you value SkyMiles at just a penny each (which is on the low side), these are huge sign-up bonuses, given that you’re looking at a bonus worth $600-700, depending on whether you go with the Gold Delta SkyMiles Card or Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card.

That doesn’t include the $50 and $100 statement credits offered by the Gold and Platinum cards, respectively, which you can get after making a Delta purchase. You can even make money on the benefit, given that even a small charge would trigger the full statement credit amount.


Anecdotally I find that both of these cards are quite easy to be approved for. Amex typically limits you to having at most five credit cards (which doesn’t include charge cards like The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPENThe Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN, etc.).

Lastly, remember that you’re eligible for the bonus on each of these cards, so if you’ve only had one card or the other, you should still be eligible for one of the bonuses.

Bottom line

The increased sign-up bonuses on the Gold Delta SkyMiles Card and Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card are the best we’ve ever seen. If you haven’t had one or both of these cards before, you have about a day left to do so.

  1. How many times have you pushed this junk in the past month? Seriously, this is enough. Your blog is starting to look like a MLM scheme.

  2. What time will the offer be pulled tomorrow?

    With the Hilton AMEX cards a month or so ago, it was around noon EST.

  3. @maxwell – I get it but for 70k miles my partner signed up. He hasn’t had the platinum yet and that’s nothing to sneeze at. Anymore all us airlines miles are becoming worthless (looking at you AA).

  4. @dovie – we did the same going to Hawaii and we did. I actually forgot I used flying blue points as I would’ve thought I had used delta.

  5. Thnx for the reminder! Just got it in and looking forward to the 70k miles. That is a seriously valuable offer.
