Gold Personal:
"Earn 60,000 bonus miles after you make $2,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months and $1000 more w/in 6 months and a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months."
https://www.americanexpress.com/us/c...elta-skymiles/

A post on Reddit suggests that you can find a 50K offer, but with a $100 credit, by doing a dummy booking on Delta.com.
The offer should appear before you have to pay for the flight. [Did [b]not work when I booked a flt today, 3/15/17.]

Note: Review the recent discussion in the thread about various other ways to try to locate offers as high as 50k+$50 credit.

Getting the statement credit:
MrMoonlight successfully purchased a Delta ecert (essentially a gift card) and received the statement credit. See this post..
Jacobsta811 also received $50 credit for $50 e-cert on both gold business and gold personal cards.
muji received $100 credit for $50 eCert on Delta Platinum card
sdsearch received $100 credit for $50 eCert on business Platinum card (see this post).
vah4883 received $100 credit for $5.6 tax on Platinum card

Delta Gold Statement Credit

My wife and I recently got approved for the Delta Gold Amex, under the 50,000 miles, and $50 statement credit offer. The credit only applies if a purchase is made from Delta.

Is it possible to buy a gift card, and apply it to my SkyMiles account, using her card? I'd rather have all the $ under one account rather than split between the two of us.

Yes. Just be aware that on a given flight Delta only lets you use at most 3 gift cards. So don't collect a bunch of $50 Delta gift cards and expect to be able to use them all for one flight.

But since it's a gift card, it can be gifted to anyone else (including from her to you or vice versa). When buying it online, you specify your email as well as the email of the person you're giving it to; if you're getting it for yourself, obviously those can be both the same, but they don't have to be.

If I apply for the Platinum card, when does the $195 annual fee it? Is it immediately or when the first statement is sent?

Well, it may show up immediately in your online activity display, but you don't have to pay it until your first statement's normal "pay by" date. Ie, there's no separate "early payment" required just because it showed up immediately.

its the best I've seen in watching the card for years. I got the offer two yeas ago and jumped a level in status because of it. If you can benefit from
the status and have a use for 70k delta miles, then I'd recommend using the "once in a lifetime" bonus on this deal. I jumped on it years ago and have 0 complaints

Whenever I go to the AMEX site to try and apply for the Delta reserve card and get the 10K + 10K MQM bonus, I'm given the option to "upgrade my account" with no details on receiving any signup bonus. I have the Plat personal + biz cards currently. Is it possible to hold both + get the signup bonus for both, or does AMEX treat them as the same family of cards?

Delta Gold American Express Card

SO I applied and was approved for the delta gold skymiles American express credit card. I selected get my account number then to apply it to my flights. I got the text verification code entered that but when it said to open the card member agreement I got a blank page and when i closed it I lost everything. I didn't get my card number, No welcome email either. Do I need to apply all over again or do I have to wait for the card to arrive in the mail whenever that is? I don't remember if they asked for my address when Applying for the card so I might not even get it at all now.I can't email AMEX and their chat is only for members with a account well I never got my card number ahead of time cause it didn't load correctly so now I have to wait weeks to book my flight if I even get the stupid card.

UPDATE. Finally got the welcome email and was able to click the link to get the card number. Whats happening is the after the verification code the page with all the terms and conditions the card member agreement box is white/blank. I click on download and I just get a white screen but i got smart this time. I clicked open in new tab so after I closed it I was still on the terms and conditions page and was able to click on get card number and was able to complete my purchases.

How long after card approval does it show up on my delta.com home page? The last time I had the card, years ago, it listed the card under my name & that triggered the benefits when you made a rez., like 1st bag checked free.
