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
philemer received $100 credit for buying a box lunch on board

Anyone know of any link to for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Business offers BETTER than 30k/1k? This is the only card I haven't gotten yet, and I want to get anything 50k or 60k. I have not gotten the mailer offer and even when I use the link to login using my SkyMiles Number and Last Name, I keep getting the error: "PLEASE VERIFY THE INFORMATION YOU ENTERED IS CORRECT AND TRY AGAIN."

I have a mailer offer for 60k bonus miles and a $50 statement credit for both the Delta Gold personal and business cards that expires on April 19th. I would like to combine pulls and apply for both on the same day, but my last AmEx credit card application was Jan. 29, 2017. This means that even if I applied on the April 19th deadline, I would have more than 2 applications in 90 days since the 90 days from my last application doesn't run until April 30th. I'm wondering if I apply for both cards on or around April 19th - presumably get the first one approved and the other one denied, would I have a chance to successfully get approved on recon if I called after April 30th?

In addition to the 90 day concern you should understand how American Express deals with multiple applications on the same day. In many cases they process one application, defer the second for five days, and process with a second credit inquiry:

I knew that they would defer it for 5 days, but I guess I thought it would be on the same hard pull. Combining hard pulls is really a secondary goal anyway - what I really want to do is get both Delta cards under the 60k + $50 targeted offer I received which expires on April 19th. I know once with respect to a Chase card, I applied for tje card when I was at 5/24, got rejected and then was able to call the recon line 15 days later when I was then 4/24 and get approved. I was hoping it might work the same way for AmEx such that if applied before 4/19 deadline (got rejected) but called recon after 4/30 when I was no longer 2/90, that I could then get approved on that 60k app. Thoughts on whether that might work?

Does the offer say you must apply by that date or be approved?

Not sure if this is a helpful data point, but I applied (and was approved) for a Delta Amex in November. In early February I applied for an Amex charge card and an Amex credit card on the same day. Instant approval on both and neither one resulted in a hard pull on my credit report.

Same result for me. Delta card in November & Hilton in February. No hard pull.

I've read reports that AMEX will not do a hard pull if you are current card holder. I wonder if they just look at your pymt history.

Same thing happened to me. I think roughly around November / December 2016, Amex stopped hard pulling credit profiles. My Experian is frozen, I applied for Hilton Honors in October, declined and called in because Exp was frozen. Provided PIN and approved, and 1 hard pull. In December, I applied for the Everyday and Blue for Business (Experian still frozen), both instant approval, no HP on EXP, TU, or EQ. In January, applied for Green Card and Gold Card (For the 25k after 1k spend each). Once again, Exp still frozen, Green instantly approved and Gold the next day. Again, no HP for all 3 bureaus. This is good news for Amex cardholders.


Also on a sidenote, Bank of America Personal now only pulls ONCE and it is valid for 30 days regardless of how many applications. In the past, you could combine pulls if applied in the same day. Now, it is apply as many times as you wish within 30 days, and only 1 hard pull. I applied for Alaska, Merrill+, Travel Rewards, 2 more Alaska within 30 days, and only had 1 TU pull. I got rejected by all Alaska cards, since I already have one, and all the rejection letters included the TransUnion pull all dated the same date, even though the applications were many weeks apart. Merrill+ approval also had the same TU score and pull date as the AS rejections. So this is also good news for BofA applicants.

@mia, just curious, but is managing FlyerTalk your full time job? Haha I am just curious because I see you on every thread on FlyerTalk.

I know it states card takes 7-10 business days to arrive, but I'm wondering does it usually take this long? How long did your card take to reach you?

To where? Indonesia???

Within the USA, Amex often (but not always) sends cards second-day UPS, but it may not get sent until a day or so after approval (ie, allow time for them to create the card).

But I don't know if anyone knows in what cases they do or don't send 2nd day UPS. (It might depend on whether the card has an annual fee, I'm not sure.)
