There are a number of increased limited time bonus offers right now from a number of the Delta family of AMEX cards you should take a look at:
But hands down the best one for those who are chasing status with Delta is the Platinum card offer. Take a look:
10,000 Bonus MQMs you get after meeting the $2,000 in spending on the card is the same as taking TWO transcon round trips i.e. that is a bunch of flying and yet you get these as part of the offer. You also get a bunch of other perks as you can see above but also not mentioned above is a BOGOF or buy one get one free coach main cabin certificate the second year of card membership (i.e. not the first year). That can make this card a keeper long term for that perk alone.
Since we are really focused on the amazing MQM offer let’s knock out some common questions.
Q) Do these MQMs rollover?
A) Yes as long as you meet the minimum requirements to rollover MQMs that is 25,000 MQMs PLUS spend $3,000 in MQD spend or become MQD exempt via spending $25,000 on your Delta AMEX cards by 31DEC each year.
Q) Do these MQMs count toward my million miler status?
A) You bet they do. Just like the above question all MQMs from any source are treated the same.
Q) Can I gift these new card bonus MQMs to anyone?
A) No. The card holder earns these bonus MQMs
Q) Can I gift the 10,000 bonus MQMs I can get after spending $25,000 on the card before 31DEC each year?
A) No. The Platinum bonus MQMs from spending ONLY go to the card holder. Only the Delta Reserve card allows you to send bonus MQMs from spending to another person.
These are the most common questions folks tend to ask and often get wrong. Also keep in mind with ANY of these offers they are once in a lifetime, that is, if you have ever had the new card bonus from these you cannot get it again.
What about the business cards? Do I have to own a corporation to get one? No, you can fill it out with only your SSN and if you are say buying and selling on Ebay and want the card for those kinds of spend that is fine even if you do not earn any income from this. There will be a field where you can fill in your total income. Since most have had the personal card the business cards may be the best choice (like the GOLD Delta AMEX business card for example).
Other important reminders. You are limited to 4 (some say 5) AMEX credit cards at once so you may have to close some other cards as all of these are credit cards. This total limit apples to personal and business cards. Lastly you can apply for a personal and business card on the same day if you want but likely only one will be instantly approved with the next coming a few days later.
Also keep in mind both personal and business cards, gold and platinum, are ALL unique products. You could, in theory, hold them all at once if you wanted to (but then you cannot have any other AMEX credit cards). Unsure if you have ever had any of these cards? HERE is a post to quickly check for yourself. Once you do find out, thanks for using our links when you do apply for the card(s).
Lastly on the spend credits from any of the cards. Most have reported any on-board purchase like the new Flight Fuel will trigger the credit. Or, some just buy Delta e-Gift cards and that takes care of it. The only thing that does NOT work is Gogo so avoid those.
Any other questions? Fire away but don’t let this amazing offer pass you by! – René
