Sorry, this deal is no longer available.  Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published?  Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Quick Deals.

As a reminder, the increased offers on the Delta SkyMiles credit cards are set to expire tomorrow. These increased offers are as good as it typically gets on each of these cards. If you’re considering one of them, this is a reminder that time on these offers is running out.

Delta of course 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. Anyone still noticing their referral links are showing the 60k/70k sign up bonuses? Mine are.. When should those revert back to the lower numbers?

    • I’ve refreshed the browser and opened my links in incognito windows in multiple browsers already. They all still show the increased bonus amounts (70k/60k).
