(UPDATE 7/28 – Reposting as these offers are set to expire next week (Wednesday August 3rd). It is possible and/or maybe even likely that these offers will return again, but if you’re looking to apply for one of the Delta cards at these higher offers, now would be a good time!)

KEY LINKS

You can find all of these offers on our top credit card offers page. They are under either the airline cards or business cards section and are all listed as expiring August 3rd.

They’re baaaaack!

The increased Delta American Express card offers we’ve seen a number of time over the past few years are here again, but some with a slight twist. There are offers on all “flavors” of the card (except the Blue), including the Gold, Platinum and Reserve. If you’re finding yourself short of Skymiles, then this could be good news.

Delta Gold Skymiles personal card offer

The current offer is for 70,000 bonus Skymiles which is close to if not the highest offer we’ve seen.

Offer details:

  • Earn 70,000 Bonus Miles after spending $2,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Read more and learn how to apply here.
  • Annual fee is waived the first year ($99 thereafter)
  • Earn 2x miles on Delta purchases, 1x on all other purchases
  • Free first checked bag on Delta flights

This is a great card to pick up if you want Skymiles for no out of pocket cost.

Delta Gold Skymiles business card offer

The current offer is for 75,000 bonus Skymiles.

Offer details:

Earn 75,000 Bonus Miles after spending $3,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Read more and learn how to apply here.

  • Annual fee is waived the first year ($99 thereafter)
  • Earn 2x miles on Delta purchases, 1x on all other purchases
  • Free first checked bag on Delta flights

You are eligible for the Delta Gold Skymiles business card offer if you’ve never had the Delta Gold business card before, EVEN if you have had the Delta Gold personal card.

Delta Platinum Skymiles personal card offer

The Delta Platinum is back with another outstanding sign-up bonus offer:

  • Earn 90,000 Bonus Miles after you make $3,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months. Read more and learn how to apply here.
  • After you spend $25,000 in purchases on your Card in a calendar year, you can earn 10,000 MQMs up to two times per year
  • $250 annual fee
  • Earn 2x miles on Delta purchases, 1x on all other purchases
  • Free first checked bag on Delta flights
  • Annual companion certificate for domestic main cabin fares (some restrictions)

It’s possible that this offer is less desirable than the one I signed up for which was for 70,000 bonus miles and 10,000 bonus MQMs. But for most folks, the redeemable miles are probably more valuable. This welcome offer is worth at least $1,000, in my opinion.

Delta Platinum Skymiles business card offer

The Delta Platinum is back with the highest sign-up bonus I’ve seen:

  • Earn 100,000 Bonus Miles after you make $5,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months. Read more and learn how to apply here.
  • After you spend $25,000 in purchases on your Card in a calendar year, you can earn 10,000 MQMs up to two times per year
  • $250 annual fee
  • Earn 2x miles on Delta purchases, 1x on all other purchases
  • Free first checked bag on Delta flights
  • Annual companion certificate for domestic main cabin fares (some restrictions)

You are eligible for the Delta Platinum Skymiles business card offer if you’ve never had the Platinum Delta business card before, EVEN if you have had the Delta Platinum personal card.

Delta Reserve card offer

The Reserve is the huge offer of the bunch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the bonus for this card at 100,000 miles before. Often, the offer is super low for redeemable miles, although the card often gives you some MQMs after the initial spend as well. In this case, no MQMs are awarded initially, but far more redeemable miles. You do also have the ability to earn MQMs with additional spending. Here are the details:

  • Earn 100,000 Bonus Miles after you spend $5,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Read more and learn how to apply here.
  • Delta SkyClub access for the primary cardmember when traveling on Delta flights
  • When you apply for a Delta SkyMiles Reserve Card, you can choose your Card’s design: limited edition Boeing 747 metal*, classic metal or 70% reclaimed plastic. *The Boeing 747 design is made with 25% metal from a retired Boeing 747 aircraft.
  • After you spend $30,000 in purchases on your Card in a calendar year, you can earn 15,000 MQMs up to four times per year
  • $550 annual fee
  • Earn 2x miles on Delta purchases, 1x on all other purchases
  • Free first checked bag on Delta flights
  • Annual companion certificate for main cabin or first class fares (some restrictions)

The main perk of this card is Delta SkyClub access, but at a significant annual cost. It makes way more sense to pick up the card, however, than to simply buy a lounge membership, if that is something you would normally do. If you book paid first class fares, the companion certificate is also very valuable. This is definitely a card for the elite Delta flyer, unless you’re just eyeing the sign up bonus worth at least $1,200 in my opinion.

Which one is best?

This all really depends on which you’ve had and what your plans are. Remember that American Express has a once-per-lifetime rule for their card products. As I’ve had every version Gold and Platinum cards, both personal and business, I’m only eligible for the Reserve. The fee is the huge turnoff, although this offer is amazing. If I knew I’d be flying Delta as much as I did last year for work, I might bite the bullet and jump on it.

If you’re looking for an entry-level card with a solid bonus, the Gold is for you. If you’re already a Delta flyer and don’t have the Platinum, that one is probably the better pick if you can use the MQMs and the annual certificate. If you fly Delta weekly for work and don’t have the Reserve in your wallet (or some other option to access a Delta lounge), it might deserve a place. You could definitely eat and drink back that $550.
