Delta & American Express have a portfolio of co-branded credit cards, and we’ve just seen some fantastic new limited time bonuses rolled out on them.

While Delta SkyMiles is far from my favorite mileage currency, I appreciate that miles in the program have a “floor” value, based on all the ways there are to redeem SkyMiles for one cent each towards Delta purchases. That potentially makes these bonuses pretty rewarding, given how much travel they could get you.

Big Delta Amex bonuses through November 10, 2021

There are limited time bonuses on six Delta Amex cards, which are valid for applications through Wednesday, November 10, 2021. These are among the best offers we’ve seen on these cards, and some of these bonuses include redeemable miles, elite miles, and even statement credits. Let’s go through the offers that are available.

Delta Gold Personal Amex: 70K SkyMiles

The Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card is offering a bonus of 70,000 SkyMiles after spending $2,000 within the first three months. The card has a $99 annual fee that’s waived for the first 12 months (Rates & Fees).

How many Delta Amex cards are you eligible for?

Each of these Delta American Express cards is considered a separate product, and you’re eligible for the bonus on each card once. In other words, you could get both the business and personal version of the Gold, Platinum, and Reserve over time, which opens up lots of opportunities. That means a vast majority of people should be eligible for the bonuses on at least some of these cards.

Amex’s standard card application rules apply.

Over time you’re eligible for the bonuses on all of these cards

Which Delta Amex offer is best?

Which Delta Amex offer is best depends entirely on what you’re looking for and what your travel profile is like. As far as my general advice goes:

Keep in mind that Delta’s “Pay With Miles” feature allows you to redeem your SkyMiles for at least one cent each towards the cost of a Delta ticket. That means 70,000-90,000 SkyMiles will get you a minimum of $700-900 worth of airfare, and that doesn’t even include the other aspects of these bonuses.

Get lots of value using Delta’s “Pay With Miles” feature

Bottom line

Through Wednesday, November 10, 2021, Delta Amex cards are offering increased bonuses that are among the best we’ve seen. You can earn anywhere from 70,000 to 90,000 redeemable miles, and on top of that some cards are even offering elite miles and/or statement credits.

I’d highly recommend picking up a Delta Amex with this promotion. Even if you’re cashing out miles at one cent each towards the cost of a Delta ticket, that’s a lot of value.

    "Delta premium redemptions are priced round trip, not one way." -

    What???? Travel much?

    "The best way to consistently use Delta miles is on domestic redemptions, economy or first." -

    If you can't afford a couple hundred dollars for a ticket. Enjoy that vacation to Alabama.

    They are low value sky pesos

    I'm glad I got the gold a few months ago. The bonus was 70k with a $200 credit, so better than the $50 credit. My wife also referred me from her amex gold card so she got 30k MR points. That's a pretty great bonus for a card with no annual fee year 1.

    It’s funny to see people whine about Skymiles when a few weeks ago I got a PS>D1 TATL upgrade for 37500 miles. Some people just don’t know how to play the game I guess,

      @Jan

      Without the routing and the ticket prices you paid, I can't really say you hit the jackpot.
      I even doubt you really know how to play the game.
      But I'm quite sure you were offered 37500 miles or $375 and you chose to redeem it at "floor" value. So much for playing the game.

      If you are already paying $3500 for PS, sometimes you get these offers. Although rare, but as low as $300 upgrades are being offered to PS. The common one tends to be $700+.

      And the people who played the game for a long time whine because RT TATL jumped from 100k to 125k to 140k to 900k. And (for those in the know) a special eulogy for open-jaw and stopover.

    2. Jan

      I paid $960usd for the flight and did pay $375usd for the upgrade to ZRH, though it was also offering at 37500sm like you said. Point is, the deals do exist, even though the next day the upgrade offer jumped back to some $2500usd/250k points. In my return flight I was offered $800/80k from economy to J which I declined.

    3. Eskimo

      Under $1k is a good deal you got there for PS.

      But the upgrade "deal" you got has nothing to do with Skymiles and more with Delta monetizing empty seats. It happens even more frequently on domestic flights.
      I have personally seen few times where PS is less than $100 cheaper to being more expensive than D1.

      Like I said in my last post $700+ is common, but $300 isn't unheard of.

      Last year...

      Last year and this year is the global upgrade certificate haven years. For every one I personally know (and verified) has had a 100% upgrade success. So yeah, DL would rather sell you those for $375 rather than upgrading their top tier elites.

      Enjoy your trip, you scored a good deal.

    Yeah, incredible offers for Skymiles! Unfortunately, Delta wanted 320,000 Skymiles apiece, each way, for the two of us in Delta 1 for an upcoming Med cruise next year even with flexible dates. That's 1,280,000 in total round trip. American wanted 57,500 each way in business so I redeemed 230,000 Advantage miles with them. Well, that and because I have slightly fewer than 300,000 Skymiles with DL, down now to slightly fewer than 1,000.000 AAdvantage miles...

OK, might be less convenient with two connections via AA, but DL offered only a two stop itinerary for the 320K as well.

    Given the new inflationary cost of Delta redemptions on anything but their "flash sales" these new "huge" bonuses only serve to contribute to this inflation.
    Just received another 90,000 SkyMiles or 150,000 MR's(from AMEX Platinum)?
    Cool, a one-way from ATL-CDG in Delta One is now 450,000 SkyMiles!

      Before people whine and moan, here are the caveats with Delta Skymiles

      1) Delta premium redemptions are priced round trip, not one way. You can get round trip redemptions US to Europe for 200K or so, which is obviously higher than other US airlines, but the often quoted 200K-400K one way really isn't what people are booking

      2) Delta Skymiles are worth at a minimum 1 cent via pay with miles. Cash bonuses of $700,...

      2) Delta Skymiles are worth at a minimum 1 cent via pay with miles. Cash bonuses of $700, $800, etc would be very compelling to many, so these are compelling offers

      3) This year and next, Delta is letting you earn status miles on award redemptions, which is a nice bonus

      4) The best way to consistently use Delta miles is on domestic redemptions, economy or first. If you want more consistent international redemptions look at AA, UA, whatever. But Delta has its place for domestic redemptions

      C Weston - yep, I travel a lot. Bloggers consistently post one way prices for Skymiles when Skymiles redemptions on Delta metal are better priced round trip - you will often find a round trip for 240K, but the one way is also 240K. Especially the case with flash sales.

      The floor value of SkyMiles is 1 cent per mile - similar to the floor value of UA and AA miles in all honestly

    4. Eskimo

      @Anthony

      1. "the often quoted 200K-400K one way really isn't what people are booking" Isn't that enough to say it's greatly devalued? So if one can't redeem a reasonable price (yet still a lot more expensive) what is the benefit of it. It's not a caveat, it's a huge devaluation.

      2. You also forget to factor in that in most markets, Delta is more expensive than others. So your $700 ticket on DL could have...

      2. You also forget to factor in that in most markets, Delta is more expensive than others. So your $700 ticket on DL could have been flown on UA for $500.

      3. More supply, more elites, more devaluation. It's a nice bonus for people with low status. It's diluting the Platinums for people who don't normally qualify. (Diamonds too, but the MQD is still a big requirement)

      4. I agree, Skymiles are now having better use for domestic. But the great and much better value international premium days are long gone.

      However, I don't really have much choice. I could either fly Delta and complain about Skymiles or fly AA/UA and complain about both the airline and their FFP.
