[YMMV] Gold Delta American Express Business Card: Spend $2,000 & Get 5,000 Miles
- Enroll and earn 5,000 bonus miles when you spend $2,000 or more on your Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card starting from your enrollment date and ending on October 15th, 2016.
The Fine Print
- Purchases must post to your account on or before October 15th, 2016 to count.
There was also a similar deal (but for 10,000 points after $10,000 spend) on the SPG business card. It’s likely that people that are being targeted will have their annual fee ($95) due during the promotional period (URL contains PreRenewal), this seems to be a new tactic by American Express to improve retention numbers. This promotion is basically an extra 2.5 points per dollar spend, keep in mind this card normally earns at these rates:
- 2x points on Delta purchases
- 1x points on all other purchases
Don’t really think the annual fee is worth paying for, even with these extra 5,000 points. If you’re AF isn’t due during the promotional period then 3.5x Delta miles per $1 spent is a pretty good deal. If anybody sees any similar offers for any of the other business or personal cards, please let me know in the comments.
