Perhaps it can be churned ?

There appears to be no language restricting this to a)first time users or b)the difference between award points from your first bonus.

I gave it a try! Cancelled the Gold just about a week ago, and here's this gem!! I applied for the personal and business.

Already have HHonors Amex and SPG, so we'll see if they give it to me...

Chrun and Burn

I just canceled the Amex Delta Skymiles Gold Card, back in August I believe and I got an email re: this offer. However, when I called to ask AMEX re: the offer I received, the rep said I won't get the miles since I had the card before ; its for first time users, blah blah blah...

What I have noticed from these losers is we all get different responses (I got charged for the AMEX Gold Card with Membership Rewards, but my friend didnt...even though we both got the same card...the same time) from AMEX when we inquire about their promotions...so caveat emptor

I think I'll wait a few more mths before I apply for any Delta AMEX cards...

Did anyone receive the confirmation email after filing personal application?

I filed business and personal but received only one for business, nothing for personal.

Is that normal?

Go for 45,000 Skymiles as posted in the OP. Delta hasn't been known to offer mega bonuses (75k+), but with the rate they are printing Skymiles, I wouldn't put it past them.
