Our Verdict

Not really worth considering for most people due to the fact the annual fee is not waived.  If you have questions about American Express upgrade offers they will be answered hereGeneral questions about American Express answered here.

The terms don’t seem to exclude current or past holders of the Delta Platinum card from receiving the miles, but maybe I missed it?

download the T&C , control + F , search for ” Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card “

Did it and did not find any mention of welcome offer being withheld for previous card holders…so this looks like a NLL offer. Could someone else second check me please?

WEAK.

Only worthwhile if giving same points as sign up and/or waiving the annual fee.

Seeing a similar but worse off on my Delta Business Gold:

Earn 15,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in purchases on the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card within the first three months of Card Membership. Annual fee not waived.

This might be the worst offer to date.

Not something I’d think twice about, but I’m certain someone out there was suckered and took the upgrade or was a small spender in need of a quick 25k to bring their travel agenda to reality.

I’m considering this, as when I try to apply they tell me I’m not eligible for welcome bonus due to my history, etc. with them… might as well get something.

I took this offer, upgraded from the blue card. 250k points is more than the AF, and you don’t open a new line of credit. I’m trying to get under 5/25, so upgrades are all I can do for now.
