Better than nothing.

Do you think that this is a good deal?

It's pretty comparable to the SPG bonus - 25% bonus for over 25,000 miles (or was it 20,000?). Not bad, didn't expect any better. If you think about it, many consider MR worth less than SPG points (3 MR = 1 SPG point) so in that sense, it's a good deal.

Hmmm. The terms and conditions that the offer is only for people who received this offer. What are the experiences with this? Did people get the bonus even though they were not solicited?

Good luck with trying! Registering did not work for me. I just now tried it (by clicking on the OP's link). When I clicked "register" I entered by PIN and clicked on "limited time offers" and the response "you ain't got none limited time offers" or something like that.

YMMV,

David

What am I doing wrong? When I click on "Register" from the OP's link it takes me to what looks like a generic DL home page. I did not see a "Register" option.

Make sure your pop-up blocker is off because it opens up a new window with just a text box to type in your DL SM # and then click register.

I received this offer yesterday also. I thought it was funny, because I received one just like it that expired September 30 (which I used).

The register link opens a popup window with this address: https://www.delta-offers.com/offers/go/amexbonus1106

See if that works.

Worked that time. Thanks. Kind of odd, because when you click the link it says: "Thank you for your interest in this offer," but does not expicitly say what the offer is.

Is there a minimum MR point transfer amount?

Make copies of every screen, if this works out like last year
it will take months to collect and tons of work.Plan on talking to
Delta, Amex, India and the dark side of the moon before you get
the bonus points

henare-how long does it usually take for your bonus miles to post? Is it a certain amount of time after you do the transaction OR so long after the promotion expires?

Thanks.
