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.]

I don't know the answer to your specific question, but the 20+80 offer just recently ended, so whatever the frequency is, my guess is it's still probably going to be a while before/if it goes back to that level again.

I just received an kinda wierd target offer for the Delta Amex cards.
​​​​​​Gold: 70k/$2k spend, $0/$99 AFPlatinum: 80k/$2k spend + 20% statement credit for all eligible purchases (max $200). $250AF.
The weird part is the 20% statement credit. I have never seen the offer before. It seems to apply to all purchases in the first 3 months, not just Delta purchases.
Has anyone received similar offer?
Thanks.

The offer in this link has the requirement of $1000 DELTA purchase for the $200 credit. My offer is 20% cash back for all purchases (if I am reading the terms right). So I am paying a net $50 AF for the Platinum in the first year.


20% Statement Credit
You can earn 20% back in the form of statement credits on all eligible purchases made with your Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership, starting from the date your account is approved (up to $200 back). A statement credit will be applied 8-12 weeks after you make a qualifying purchase. Eligible purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on a single Card Account. Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases to meet the spend requirements do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases of gift cards; or purchases of any cash equivalents. Additional Card Members on your account are not eligible for this offer. In rare instances, your period to make eligible purchases may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving your Card. Purchases may fall outside of the 3 month period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). To earn 20% back, your account must not be canceled or past due at the time a statement credit is applied to your Card Account. If your application is not received by 2/10/2021, we will not process your application even if we later receive your application. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.

I dont think it's unusual for there to be multiple variations of the same offer. I posted DoC's article for those who might want to check if they are targeted. Plus, he says there is no lifetime language on that offer.
