The Offer

No direct link, shows up when doing a dummy booking

  • American Express is offering a sign up bonus of 70,000 miles after $2,000 in spend within the first three months. You also get a $400 statement credit after your first Delta purchase within three months of account opening

The Fine Print

  • Statement credit issued approximately 8-12 weeks after you make a Delta purchase on your Card in your first 3 months.
  • Bonus miles will be issued after you make $2,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months.
  • Offer Expires 7/28/2021.

Card Details

  • Annual fee of $99 waived first year
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 2x miles per $1 spent on restaurants (including takeout and delivery), groceries and Delta purchases
    • 1x miles per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • $100 Delta Flight Credit when you spend $10,000 in purchases on your Card in a calendar year
  • First Checked Bag Free
  • 20% Back on In-flight Purchases
  • Receive Main Cabin 1 Priority Boarding on Delta flights

Our Verdict

Previous offer was 70,000 miles + $200 statement credit. This is an insane bonus, even if you don’t value skymiles highly this is still a $400 bonus (although does require a Delta purchase). Adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses immediately. American Express doesn’t match bonuses unfortunately, but sometimes they offer courtesy points if you applied for a lower bonus recently.

Does buying a gift card at delta.com count as a “Delta purchase”?

Did anyone get the 70,000 miles and $400 SC? Neither has posted for me and we made a delta flight purchase within the time frame. Thanks in advance!

I opened the card 2 months ago for 400$ and 7000 points. My question is that if the 400$ credit counts towards the 2000$ purchase within 3 months or I have to pay my credit card myself at least 2000$ without considering the 400$ credit?

Has anyone been able to get $400 + 70k the past few days? I’ve tried with a VPN from many different locations based on the comments here (including Japan) but I’ve only gotten $200 + 70k. Let me know how you got it if you’ve been able to do it.

Does this offer work if I had this card before and got a bonus but cancelled later on?
Or is it for first time applicants?

Got 70k + $400 after delta purchase only after vpn to japan and chome incognito. 90k + $200 without incognito. I’m still in pop up hell. I’ve tried this offer over the past month no luck. GGS

PS. there’s an one way SFO to LAX flight mid august for $39 or something like that. Should be a nice throw away booking if anyone doesn’t want to risk buying delta GC

Can I open two of the same Amex Detla Gold with different welcome offers and obtain both?

Acer – 5:01 PM
I completely understand where you’re coming from but as per the welcome offer policy, if you have or had the same card in past you’d not receive the welcome offer on same new card.
Let me brief it to you..
Lets suppose you first applies for 70,000 Miles + $400 Statement Credit
(which would be your first Delta card)
and when you again apply for second same card with 90,000 Miles + $200 Statement Credit
That would be considered as second.

As you already have now with (70,000 Miles + $400 Statement Credit)
Acer – 5:01 PM
So, you should not receive the welcome offer on second card
Acer – 5:01 PM
There must be atleast 1 minutes of delay in applying the cards.

Wasn’t instantly approved, application needs further review (about 14 days to make a decision). Under 5/24, $200 + 90K miles

Edit: Received approval email after few mins.
