2/1 Last Call for the Amex Delta Platinum 70k/Gold 50k Refer-A-Friend Offers

This fall the Amex Delta Platinum cards had among their best offers ever: 70,000 bonus miles and 10,000 MQMs.

These public offers ended and the marketing stopped. However, the offers live on in Amex refer-a-friend links that are valid until February 1, 2017.

Between my wife and I, we have each of the platinum and gold cards. If you use our links we get 5,000 miles bonus, up to 55,000 miles per card per year. More miles = more travel = thank you!

Here are some of my favorite uses of Delta SkyMiles and I recently wrote on how useful Delta SkyMiles are to Australia.

Though Delta SkyMiles are widely mocked, they have been the second most useful miles to me after United MileagePlus in my travels to 186 countries and counting.

Heads Up: each of these bonuses is ‘once per lifetime’ under current Amex rules. If you have had any of these cards in the past, you will not be eligible for a bonus on that specific card. You can get the bonus on any of the below 4 that you have not previously held.

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

Amex Delta Platinum:

If you chase Delta elite status, the Amex Delta Platinum cards grant 10,000 MQMs each at the $25,000 and $50,000 annual spend levels.

That first $25,000 also triggers the MQD waiver.

If you have both personal and business cards and spend $50,000 on each, that’s 40,000 MQMs per year.

Amex Delta Gold:

The Amex Delta Gold cards have some solid offers as well. 50k + $50 statement credit. I used these offers myself in September when they were public.

SkyMiles members without an open Amex Delta card from time to time may be targeted for offers in the 50-75k range, with or without statement credit. Alternately, you may get a 50,000 + $100 statement credit offer in the booking process on the Delta website. I am not aware of prior public offers higher than 50,000.
