70k Delta SkyMiles Amex Offers (Extended through year-end)

Disclaimer: I am not an American Express marketing partner. The below links are my personal refer-a-friend links.

 

Update: This offer is expired! 

The American Express Delta credit card public sign-up offer is back down to 35,000 SkyMiles but if you use one of our referral links below you can still snag a higher 70k offer through February. The offer is 70,000 SkyMiles for both the Platinum personal and business cards. These are the highest offers in the last year and expire February 1st.

 

So how far will 70k SkyMiles take you?

  • Domestic flights are generally 25k SkyMiles round-trip
  • Mexico and the Caribbean start at 30k SkyMiles round-trip (including Cuba)
  • Europe starts at 60k SkyMiles round-trip
  • One-way to Europe in lay-flat Business Class starts at 70k SkyMiles
  • Flights to Alaska round-trip from the lower 48 states are 25k SkyMiles

 

Personal & Business Delta Platinum SkyMiles Card

This is the highest offer Delta and Amex have ever had. The Delta SkyMiles Platinum cards offer 70,000 SkyMiles after spending $3k – $5k in the first three months. They also offer 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles towards Delta status. Both cards do have a $195 annual fee the first year, but it is offset by a $100 statement credit. You will receive the statement credit after making any Delta purchase on your card within the first three months (including a bag of chips aboard a flight or buying a Delta gift card online from Delta.com). Other great features are priority Zone 1 boarding, and first checked bag free for you and up to 8 other family members.

Almost anyone is eligible for a American Express business card. Mrs. TT sells items on craigslist and she was approved for a business card with instant approval. All you need to do is select “Sole Proprietorship” for the business type on application.

You also earn 2x SkyMiles on Delta purchases and 1x SkyMiles on everything else. The card has no foreign transaction fees so you can use it anywhere in the world. With the statement credit the annual fee nets out to be $95 the first year, and the 70k SkyMiles and MQMs you’ll earn will easily outweigh the fee.

Thrifty Tip: American Express only allows you to apply for each of their card products once per lifetime. Luckily, each of these cards is considered a different product. You have the ability to apply for both Delta platinum cards we covered, so it’s important to only apply for top offers like this.

Bottom Line 

This is an easy way to quickly stockpile Delta SkyMiles for your upcoming vacation. Mrs. TT and I are headed to Cancun nonstop flying Delta in January (for only 30k SkyMiles) to stay at the all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara (on points). We love flight deals but using points and miles saves us even more cash. We typically hold onto a card like this for 6-9 months and if we don’t feel the benefits are worth the next annual fee, then we cancel it. Once the points are deposited in your Delta account, you can cancel the card at anytime and your points are safe! Once you’ve earned your miles make sure to check out our best uses of SkyMiles!
