Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards – 4 Increased Offers
Category : Uncategorized
American Express usually increases their Delta co-brand credit card offers in the summer, but it seems we’ve lucked out and they’ve done it again. Remember, you can only get these cards once-per-lifetime per person, so if you were thinking about it, it may be the right time.
Before applying, consider what type of uses you’d have for the SkyMiles, but there are some decent redemptions to be had.
American Express co-branded points tend to post before or right after the statement in which the minimum spending requirement was met. If you have plans to got o Europe this coming winter, your SkyMiles can be put to good use before the increase from 62,500 one-way in business to 70,000 one-way in business.

The Statement Credits
Purchasing a Delta ticket will not trigger the statement credit, but any other purchase should. The purchase does not need to be $50 or $100, it can be less or more. The statement credits typically post within a few business days of the purchase.
- Economy + seat upgrades
- In-flight wi-fi
- Mileage booster
- Gift cards (purchase $50 gift card, receive $100 or $50 statement credit and use gift card for a cash flight at a later date).
The Delta Gold cards, both business and personal often times go up to 50,000 for the sign-up. People do receive higher targeted offers. As for the Platinum, that 70,000 point sign-up is the highest public offer we’ve seen. What’s most interesting to me is that they’ve increased the spending requirement for the Platinum cards. Both personal and business have typically been $2,000. The increase to $3,000 definitely makes sense, but the increase to $5,000 on the business card is unique for the rewards gained on this card – but definitely in line with the difference in spending on AMEX personal versus business products.
These offers are set to expire November 9, 2016.
