EDIT: – I have removed the link to the offer as it clearly does not work. You can go to FlyerTalk to read about it. I would again STRONGLY suggest EXTREME caution with this. There could be HUGE risks with this one the way it is talked about at Flyer Talk!
YMMV – means you may not get the miles! I cannot stress this enough times, this is NOT MY LINK.This is a linkposted on FlyerTalk in THIS thread you can read about. Also a HT to Mommy Points for the catch. So what do you need to know about this? It is from AMEX via Delta and is targeted. So, as I said, you may not get the points. Next, If you have had a PERSONAL DELTA AMEX card (Delta Gold or likely even the PLAT or Reserve card) you will not get the bonus as the new rule with AMEX is if you have had any card activity in the last 12 months you can not get a new card bonus (i.e. it is the close date that matters from your last card in that “type” of card)!
So this card link is for 70,000 points after $5000 spend. For me, $5000 spend is just about the top of my limit. I churn way too many cards, and have way too much spend to get done on my Reserve card to get my Delta MQM bonus each year. So, at least this one is reasonable. So here are some screen shots from the link (AGAIN NOT MY LINK YMMV)!
There is also an interesting bit in here to show it is from a Delta Air Lines link. It shows a $100 credit when you are buying a ticket. But, it also says you can use this credit for a future flight. So, again, YMMV, you may be able to get the card and use the credit on a later flight (that is if the link works, if you get the points, if you get the credit at all – clear)!
So, now you know what I know. I would not be shocked to see this link go away later today or for AMEX to refuse to honor it as you were not targeted. – René
