Several members of our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group reported receiving a great targeted offer today for the Gold Delta SkyMiles credit cards (both personal and business versions): up to 75,000 SkyMiles: 50,000 miles after making $2,000 in purchases in the first 3 months and a further 25,000 miles after making an additional $1,000 in purchases in the first 6 months. I don’t recall ever seeing a better offer on the Gold Delta SkyMiles cards.
Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card (note that readers have reported clicking through and finding that they are also targeted for the same offer on the business card)
- Earn 50,000 bonus miles after you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months
- Earn 25,000 bonus miles after you spend an additional $1,000 on purchases in the first 6 months

Key Card Details

- Free checked bags
- $95 annual fee is waived the first year
- Targeted offer ends 1/24/18
This looks like a fantastic offer if you receive it. Readers reported receiving this offer via email (with the subject line: Earn up to 75,000 Bonus Miles and More with this Special Offer“) and though the email highlights the personal card they have reported also seeing the same offer on the business card after clicking through the link in the email. Seventy-five thousand SkyMiles on just $3,000 spend is a pretty terrific offer and might be the best there has ever been on the Gold cards.
Personally, I think the business version of the card looks more appealing since it wouldn’t affect 5/24 count. Furthermore, those receiving the offer have reported seeing no once-in-a-lifetime language, indicating that the targeted bonus offer may be open even to those who have had the card before (though YMMV and be sure to read the terms of your offer carefully should you be targeted). If that’s correct, it would be a welcome offer for many recipients.
If you’re a Delta SkyMiles member and looking for one of these cards, keep an eye on your email to see if you’re targeted.
