Over the past few years Delta has had some sweet deals when it comes to Membership Rewards from American Express. I have taken advantage of these promo’s for both my wife & I (I even sent 50k to a friend) and have enjoyed the FREE bonus MQM’s and Skymiles.
I was able to do this because I had points to use in my Membership Rewards accounts. So even though the new bonus for the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express of 25,000 may not sound like a home run in today’s market, with no 1st year fee, and 3x points for airline tickets and 2x points for gas, if you are going to do a card churn soon this should be a card to be considered in your mix!
Will Delta have another transfer bonus deal this year? Who knows? The last rounds had a 50k minimum transfer to get 25,000 MQM’s and then the subsequent deal was moved to 100k to get the same MQM bonus. Either way, it is better to ALREADY have the points in your account so when and if the offer does happen, you can plan your next move.
