Targeted Delta Platinum Amex
I received a targeted mailer for getting the Delta Platinum Amex. Bonus is 25K miles. I would cancel my Delta Amex Gold, which is $95/year. The new one would be $195/year, so I would get 25K miles for an extra $100. I had really wanted the CSP card but had too many CC’s. I did recently get the Citi Prestige, and then my hubby authorized me for his CSP card. So I already have two new cards. this Delta card would be three new ones! I don’t think I will EVER get under 5/24!!
Do you think this card would be a good deal for me? I would probably cancel it in a year and go back to the Gold Delta. Thank you!!
Well, the offer is not a good deal. The standard public offer for that card is 35k miles (open the link in an incognito tab to see, this is our affiliate link: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/go/dl/[/URL])
In general, I think the card is worth it, but I’d wait until the next time there’s a bonus offer. That card often goes to 60k.
Thank you for your reply Tiffany. I feel kind of silly getting that offer when you have a higher one here! One more question: I was reading their T&C’s through your link, and saw info about Shoprunner. Have you ever talked about this free shopping portal on your site? Would I get miles on my Delta AMEX Gold card through this portal like I do on their Skymiles shopping link?
If you paid with the Delta Amex, then you’d get miles for the purchase but no other bonus miles like you would with AAdvantageeshopping or something.
Yeah, Shoprunner isn’t a shopping portal so much as something that gives you free shipping. You can double-dip though! [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/08/28/shoprunner/[/URL]
