As you may have heard there is a 70,000 Gold Delta SkyMiles AMEX offer appearing for some after completing a purchase on Delta’s site. Not only is the promotion 40k more than the normal offer, but it also comes with a $100 statement credit on a Delta purchase within the first three months. Like the normal offer, the annual fee is waived for the first year, though it includes a very much increased spending requirement of 5,000 within the first 6 months (25,000 SkyMiles will be awarded after your first purchase and then 40,000 bonus SkyMiles after meeting the spend). Instead of trying to figure out which flight combinations when purchased present the offer, you can click directly here for a link to the 70k application. When the page opens YOU MUST update your last and first name as well as the SkyMiles number in the address bar.
Most are receiving a message that they will hear a response within 14 days, however if you click over to AMEX’s application status page you should see whether you were approved about one hour after applying.
