Last Day for 80,000 Miles with the Delta Credit Card Offers

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

UPDATE: These offers have expired.

The highest offer we’ve ever seen for the Delta credit cards were launched back in May, but those offers are coming to an end tomorrow, July 2, 2019. If you’ve been meaning to apply (or are new to the offer), there are six different card offers for you to chose from — three personal cards and three business cards. These are some phenomenal offers and a great way to increase your Delta account balance, especially the all time high 80k points with both the Platinum Delta SkyMiles®  Business Credit Card from American Express and Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card. I personally applied for the Platinum Business version of the card this time around as my Delta account is getting quite low and I have not yet had this card in the past. I also cannot pass up the sign up offer!

Card Benefits…

  • With all three cards you’ll receive your first checked bag for free for both you and 8 other passengers on the same itinerary, Priority boarding, 20% in-flight savings, and discounted SkyClub access. I personally find those benefits pretty basic, but the free checked baggage can really save you some money depending on how you fly.
  • With the Platinum card only, every year you are a cardmember, you are able to earn 10,000 miles and 10,000 MQMs for the first $25,000 in spend on the card during the calendar year. You’ll then earn another 10,000 miles and MQMs after you spend $50,000 total on the card in the calendar year.
  • With the Reserve card only, you’ll also be able to earn additional MQMs, but even more than the Platinum card benefit. With this card you are able to earn 15,000 MQMs and 15,000 redeemable miles when you spend $30,000 on the card within the calendar year. You’ll then be able to earn another 15,000 MQMs and 15,000 redeemable miles when you spend $60,000 total on the card in the calendar year.
  • With the Platinum card only, you’ll receive an annual companion certificate. Here is everything you need to know about the Delta Companion Ticket.
  • With the Reserve card only, you’ll also receive an annual companion ticket on your account renewal, but it will be valid for any cabin class (including first class).
  • Since all are American Express cards, you are eligible to take advantage of the many American Express statement credit offers that I write about often! This can help often the annual fee and help you save money!

Which Delta Credit Card Offer is Best for You?

Between the Gold, Platinum and Reserve cards, the best option really depends on what you are looking for. Many people flock to the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and Platinum Delta SkyMiles®  Business Credit Card from American Express due to the opportunity to earn additional MQMs upfront on an annual basis. Of course you get 5,000 MQMs upfront as part of the limited time offer, but to earn even more miles as described above is great for those looking to earn status. These two cards also come with an annual companion certificate upon account renewal and paying the annual fee (domestic economy class that can be used within the 48 contiguous states + you have to pay applicable taxes/fees). For many, that is well worth the higher annual fee than the Gold card.

Now, with both the Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express and Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card you are getting the same benefits as above, but the opportunity to receive not only more MQMs but also redeemable miles. Instead of receiving 20,000 MQMs in total during the calendar year, you can receive up to 30,000 MQMs plus 30,000 redeemable miles within the year. Of course, the spend to receive these MQMs and miles is quite high, but if you trying to earn your desired Delta status this could be huge. Additionally, you’ll receive an annual companion certificate which can be used even in first class!

With all that being said, if you are just looking for the basic perks and a good limited time bonus, then the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card might be your best bet. The annual fee is waived for the first year, you’ll still receive a high welcome offer, you’ll get to check your bag for free and you’ll receive priority boarding. And if you can swing it, go for the business version of the card due to the increased miles.

Overall…

The business offers are the highest we’ve ever seen publicly, for all three cards. Althoughly a slightly less offer, the personal cards are also offering an incredible value and match the highest offers we’ve seen in the past.

Just remember though, American Express has a once in a lifetime policy (at least for these public offers), so if you’ve received the welcome offer for the exact same card in the past, unfortunately you will not be eligible again. With that being said, each card is a separate product, so if you’ve received the offer for the Gold card in the past, you are still eligible for the Platinum and/or Reserve.
