I received this offer in Sept 09. Took screen shots of each application page. had to fax them to Delta and fight for the 50k miles. process took 3 months. Take screen shots of each application page and save them. You will need them to claim the miles.

Why faxed them to Delta? Shouldn't it be Amex who handles you the bonus?

Mine actually gives me the 50K offer, stating 25K after first purchase, 25K after 10K in the first six months. I'll be taking a screenshot, anyway.

Are the 4 skyclub passes part of the 10k spending? Or do the just come sometime after the card?

Yes, correction. I had to fax them to AMEX Delta skymiles card customer service. That is different than the regular AMEX customer service.

Got the card today. Called in Amex Delta CS number and was confirmed that my offer is 25K after first purchase, another 25K bonus after 10K spending withing 6 months, 4 skyclub passes (I specially asked when they will arrive, the rep read the T&C - 4-8 weeks after the approval), and the first annual fee waived. Will charge 15K to get both signup bonus and miles boost (5K) on this card.

Also requested a credit line move from SPG but was told that re-location is no longer possible. Don't know if it will work if I call the general Amex CS number??

Okay, called Amex CSR number given on Skymiles online screen for apps.

I can apply for the *Platinum* Skymiles card:

25K with 1st purchase
25K bonus for 10K spend within 6 months
4 club passes

Annual fee: $150 NOT WAIVED for first year.

He was adamant about that last point, no matter how much I protested that others had gotten it waived.

For the *Gold* Skymiles card, I was only offered the 20K+10K deal on the website.

As for applying for both a personal and a business Gold Skymiles card, the supervisor said, YES, you can have both.

But you'll only get the STANDARD offer on the second card, which is 20K + 5K bonus. The 20K + 10K bonus is apparently the "bonus" offer only available to first-time Skymiles Amex card holders.

Without the $150 annual fee waived, I'd much rather get the two Gold cards.

Finally, does anyone know if the 25K bonus with 10K spend on the Plat card is a *true* bonus -- meaning, you'll still get your base 10K miles with the bonus for a total of 35K?

So I was wrong. Sorry

I thought that I was kicked out. Experience with Amex in the past resulted in instant approval. Received this card on Friday and called in to activate. Was told that I get 25,000 after first purchase and 25,000 if $10,000 spent in first 6 months. Great deal! Thanks OP!

Very bizarre... I entered my SM# and was told I can't apply as I already have a card. But I only have (and have only ever had - 100% certain) a Business Delta card.

just got offer in mail

my wife just got the offer in the mail, it seems they're targeting medallion members for the platinum offer as a way to earn MQM's 5000 of first 25 and 10000 of second 25 are MQM's...if anyone needs the offer specifics or T&C i can scan it....it says good until may 31. It also has a web address of www.deltaplatinumoffer.com this takes you to the page where you enter your name and SM#....when i entered my wife's info it came back with the 50k offer for platinum ($150 a year) in either business or personal as well as an offer for personal or business delta reserve which is the $450 fee card.
the weird part is she definately had a skymiles personal card, so I doubt even it it went through she would get the points.....when we get back from vacation I might take someones advise and use the webpage secure email to question a CSR if shes eligable...if they say yes in writing, shes in there.

Few weeks ago, I refered my wife for Gold Delta AMEX. I got 10k referal miles and she is supposed to get 20k (first time bonus) + 5k (additional users) miles. I called AMEX today saying that I have heard of this 50 k miles offer for the same CC and asked whetherf AMEX can match this offer for my wife. (Btw - AMEX has 60 days bonus offer match policy if better offer comes for the same CC). The CSR put me on hold for sometime, came back and agreed to give me 50k offer + 4 skyclub passes. 25k on first purchase + 25k after $10k spend in first 6 months. Just thought of sharing this with y'all incase you also recently applied for this CC and want to upgrade to 50k offer.^
