Great Delta 60K/70K offers now available

Note: American Express is a Frequent Miler advertiser. Please see our Advertiser Disclosure.

Amex is out with great new offers on several of the Delta co-branded credit cards to match the previous high offers on all four cards. This time, a couple of the offers are structured a bit differently. As a reminder, Delta no longer publishes an award chart, but 70,000 miles should be enough for one-way saver-level business class between North America and Europe on Delta or 60,000 miles should cover economy class round trip. It’s easy to use Delta’s website to look up award availability and pricing to get an idea as to how many miles you’ll need for your chosen destination. These offers are great for those looking to amass SkyMiles. Keep in mind that these offers are not available to those who have or have had these cards. If you have ever had one of these cards before, you will not be eligible for the signup bonus again. If you can’t remember whether or not you have had a particular card, you should be able to chat with Amex online to check.

  1. I just got one of these offers in the mail today. I’ve had 2 out of the 3 cards already but my mail offer says nothing about the once in the lifetime rule. I assume as long as I use the mail offer I should be good to go?

  2. My S.O. got this offer and I read it several times over looking for the lifetime language and it wasn’t there. Does it make sense for her to call in and ask if she is actually eligible?

  3. I would recommend chatting if you are not sure as mentioned. Surprisingly I am eligible for 2 of these cards, even though I thought I had pretty much got every card Amex ever offered.
