The Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express is now offering 50,000 bonus miles and a $50 statement credit. This is better than the 30,000-mile offer that is available directly on the American Express website and what are being promoted because of commissions through travel blogger and credit card sites.
You’ll earn 50,000 bonus miles after you make $1,000 in purchases within your first 3 months of membership. As a bonus you get a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase on your new card within your first 3 months. With no annual fee for the first year this card is a no-brainer for those who fly Delta.
This may be an offer that is only open to existing SkyMiles members so if you do not have an account then sign up first. Then check on the Special Offers Page for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Card and enter your SkyMiles number and last name here.
If you own a business you can also get the Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card, which gives you 50,000 bonus miles after $1,000 in purchases within 3 months and a $50 statement credit after your first Delta purchase.
The Gold Delta SkyMiles card offers 2 miles per $1 spent on purchases made directly with the mega-airline. Plus, get 1 mile per $1 for all of your other eligible purchases with no limits. One of my favorite benefits is that you can check your first bag free on every Delta flight and save up to $200 on a round-trip Delta flight for a family of 4. There are also benefits such as priority boarding. Similar to the other credit card offers such as the American Airlines cards they also offer a 20% savings in the form of a statement credit on in-flight purchases of food, alcoholic beverages, movies, television shows, and video games.
