American Express Delta Gold 50,000 Mile + $150 Statement Credit with Dummy Booking [YMMV]
The following offer is showing up for some when making a booking with Delta. You can make a dummy booking to try getting the offer:
- 50,000 miles after $2,000 in spend within the first three months
- $150 statement credit after your first Delta purchase
- Annual fee of $95 is waived the first year
- Card earns at the following rates:
- 2x miles on all purchases made directly with Delta
- 1x miles on all other purchases
- No foreign transaction fees
- You cannot get the bonus on the cards if you’ve ever had the card before
- Delta MQD Waiver For Diamond To Be Increased To $250,000 (From $25,000) For 2019 Qualification Year
Currently, there’s a public offer to get 60k + $50 statement credit; the tradeoff is $100 more cash for 10k less miles, plus this offer only requires $2k spend instead of $3k. In the past, we’ve seen offers of 60k miles + $100 statement credit and 75k miles + $50 statement credit.
