American Express Delta Gold – 60,000 Miles + $50 Statement Credit [Personal & Business] – Highest Ever

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • American Express has increased the sign up bonus on the personal & business versions of their Delta Gold card. The offer is as follows:
    • 60,000 miles after $3,000 in spend within the first four months
    • $50 statement credit after your first Delta purchase

Card Details

Our Verdict

We’ve seen this offer before, but it was targeted and this time it’s open to everybody (minimum spend was only $1,000 instead of $3,000). Best public offer previously was 50,000 miles + $100 statement credit, so this is $50 less in statement credit but an additional 10,000 miles. Sometimes when they increase the public sign up bonus you can get the $100 statement credit to show when doing a dummy booking, but that doesn’t seem to be currently working.

This is worth signing up for if you have a need/use for Delta miles as I doubt we will see a better offer in the short term. It might be better to wait until the referral offer for this card is also increased, that way you can help out another DoC reader. There is also a 70,000 point offer on the Platinum Delta cards.

As always before applying for this card or asking basic questions, I’d recommend reading through these things everybody should know about American Express credit cards. If you’ve recently applied, remember that American Express doesn’t usually match sign up bonuses if a higher one comes along but they will sometimes offer courtesy points. You generally need to call and request speaking to a manager as frontline reps/chat reps can’t issue points.

    “We’ve seen this offer before, but it was targeted”

    Pretty sure there were public referral offers that had this same offer last year.

  2. James says:

    I’d apply if I didn’t already have 4 AMEX credit cards.

  3. Raj says:

  5. arp says:

    I already have the 40000points +50$ credit offer for 1000$ spend as referrel.

  6. DH7 says:

    Not saying this isn’t great, but wasn’t there a 75k targeted offer last year (Nov 2016)?

  7. Gerald says:

    My wife was targeted for 75K a while ago.

  8. Drew R says:

    Does anyone have experience with Amex giving ‘goodwill’ points when you applied for a card and then a higher offer came? Also if it needs to be over the phone or you can do it online?

    I just got the Delta Gold two weeks ago…I’m unsure if I need to explicitly mention ‘goodwill’ or if there’s another tip to increase my odds. I’ve only dealt with Chase and Citi for this kind of thing.

  9. BBQ says:

    If you have the personal card, can you still get the bonus for the biz card if you’ve never had that one?

  10. Rahul says:

    Do Business cards (Gold/Platinum) count towards chase 5/24 number?

  11. Rita says:

    How to trigger the $50 credit?
