American Express Delta Skymiles Question - Update: Approved

[ Edited ]

I received a mailer last week that said an invitation to apply for Skymiles Members Only.

It offers 35000 bonus miles after spending $1000 in the first 3 months....also a $5 statement credit after a Delta purchase in the first 3 months.

I have applied for this card before, but was denied about a year and a half ago.

The APR for this card is 16.49%, it doesn't have a range.

My TransUnion score is FICO® Score 8....664, My Experian score is 660 FICO® Score 8.

Do you think I have a chance with this this time? Usually an offer from them always had a range in the APR.

 

 

I updated your subject to reflect your approval... feel free to edit if you would like.  --UB

I forgot to add, I got a second offer for the same card today....I guess it's been a week since the first offer.....exact same offer, only the RSVP code is one number different.

The first one I got a week ago started with a D324 followed by 10 numbers. The one I got today starts with D325, and then the exact same 10 numbers.

Congrats! I happen to like the card a lot. I easily hit the spend in 3 months for bonus miles and also earned another 30,000 miles by referring three people to the card so I have a little over 60,000 miles after having the card a few months. If I plan right, that's basically two round trips to places I had been looking to fly to.

I won't have any trouble hitting the spend either! I usually fly Delta when I go to visit family. I really was so happy to get this card, as I was denied when I applied outright about a year and a half ago, and then 7 months ago. I am guessing that I got this offer from Delta Skymiles, as all of my frequent flyer info was filled in on the inserts in the envelope...but I was really surprised at the $4000 SL.
