Should I upgrade Delta Gold to Platinum?

I just received an offer pop up offering me to upgrade my Delta Gold to a Platimum card.  It would reduce the fee the first year to $100.

Pretty sure I wouldn't get any sign up bonus since it's an upgrade and not new application. I do like the free companion ticket. 

 

Do you guys think I should upgrade or wait it out for something else?  Also, I can't get the offer to pop up anymore.

Re: Should I upgrade Delta Gold to Platinum?

Funny, I got the same offer when I login just now to pay my bill for my BCE. But, I don't have a Delta Gold. I don't know what card they want me to upgrade to Delta Platinum. I'm assuming my normal Amex Platinum. But, yeah same offer for me.

I tried to upgrade because of the companion ticket but it kept timing out.  I am sitting here at work trying to get that thing to popup again. lol.

[ Edited ]

Sounds like the email I got from DirecTV yesterday telling me that as a new customer I get a free year of NFL Sunday Ticket if I respond by 9/14. Thing is, I'm not a new customer and no matter which agent I speak to I ain't getting it for free.

 

Fake News.

 

But, if it is a legitimate offer and you will use the companion ticket, by all means upgrade. I have it just for the companion ticket.

Over $182,000 in credit across 12 cards.

I'm actually going to call on my way home from work.  I do have a Gold Delta so I thought it was legitimately targeting me.  The only thing is I don't have a business listed.  haha.

Re: Should I upgrade Delta Gold to Platinum?

I received the same offfer yesterday and I do have the Delta Gold. But unless you're after the companion pass, I don't see much value in the upgrade. I'd rather ride out my Delta Gold and then apply for a Platinum later so I can cash in on the bonus.
