A 75,000 mile Delta Gold offer if you’re lucky enough

Amex from time to times makes special offers available to people who it targets for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card.

For a while, many people have been targeted to receive 60,000 miles as an introductory offer, and in June that was the base public offer with no special targeting.

Now, there are reports of a big 75,000 mile bonus offer targeted to some via email. And it comes with two parts:

  • Get 50,000 miles after you spend $2,000 or more on eligible purchases in the first 3 months of cardmembership.
  • Then earn an additional 25,000 bonus miles after you spend another $1,000 on eligible purchases in the first 3 months of cardmembership.

This is the highest we’ve seen for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Amex, and it’s similar to a targeted offer for the United MileagePlus Explorer seen earlier this year.

There is no statement credit for this offer, like with some of the smaller Delta offers, but the extra miles more than make up for that.

If you want to see if you are targeted, it’s worth checking at and entering your SkyMiles number to see what’s available, or doing a search of your inbox for emails from Delta.

There are no guarantees you’ll get this deal, and there’s no word on whether this is being broadly targeted to people for example who are new SkyMiles members.

The current standard offer is for just 35,000 miles plus a $50 statement credit.

What can you do with 75,000 SkyMiles?

You can read our guide to using Delta SkyMiles here.

A great high value use is to get a one way ticket in Business Class to Europe on Delta, Air France, KLM, Alitalia, or Virgin Atlantic for just 62,500 SkyMiles. Those are tickets that often sell for $2,000 or more one way.

Or, go one way to most of Asia for 80,000 miles, which you’ll be really close to since you’ll earn at least 78,000 miles when you complete the spending requirements for the introductory bonus.

If you want to stay closer to home, many shorter domestic flights are available for 10,000 miles or less one way, so this could net you over 7 of those.

    I received the email promotion. But I had this card many years ago and converted to a no-fee Delta mileage card after first year. Am I going to be eligible for the bonus? Thanks a lot!

    I just recently got the Delta AMEX gold card with 60K mile bonus and then about 2 weeks later got the offer for the 75K mile bonus card. Can I open another card and get the 75K mile bonus? I don’t see anything in the details that states “current card holders excluded”


      @Marsh K: Generally speaking, American Express welcome bonus offers are not available to those who previously held or currently hold a product. So if you were recently approved for the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Card from American Express at one bonus, you may not get the higher bonus for opening up another credit card. This information is subject to change.

    I want to get the 75,000 skymiles credit card and believe that I should qualify for it. I put in my delta sky miles and they say I am not a member and I was wondering if there is a number I can call to speak directly to someone that may be able to help me.
