Last night, we posted a Quick Deal for a new targeted offer out on the Delta Gold SkyMiles credit card with an easy link to check your eligibility (See: Delta sending mailers for 60K offer). It turns out that this offer does not have lifetime language and is available for both the business and consumer versions of the card. We are posting again to alert readers to the fact that it is absent the lifetime language and available on both cards, which makes for a very easy haul of Delta SkyMiles.
As seen above, you can click the links that say “looking for a business card?” to toggle between the business and personal versions of the card.
- Targeted offers on both the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card (consumer version) and the Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card good for a welcome bonus of 60,000 SkyMiles after $1,000 in eligible purchases in the first 3 months plus a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase in the first 3 months
- Enter your SkyMiles number and last name at Delta.com/GOLD60K to see if you are targeted.
These offers are excellent in terms of return on spend as just $1,000 in purchases will yield 60,000 Delta SkyMiles. The annual fee on either card is waived the first year, then $95 thereafter. While these cards come with priority boarding and free checked baggage, the only bonus category for spend is 2x on Delta purchases, meaning that they aren’t terribly exciting for everyday spend. Still, 60K miles for $1K in purchases is solid.
The really notable thing about these offers is the absence of the lifetime language normally present in Amex terms. Amex usually restricts the welcome offer by stating in the terms that the welcome offer is not available to those who have or have had the card before. It is always advisable to check the terms of your targeted offer before you apply, but those who have been targeted so far report no lifetime language in their terms. This means that even if you have had one of these cards before, you should qualify for the intro offer if you are targeted.
Keep in mind that not everyone will be targeted (I did not receive an offer), but if you are it’s a nice opportunity worth consideration.
