I've gotten seemingly random "Pre-Selected" offers only for the GREEN card (not at all interested in that one)

My reason for wanting the Delta Skymiles card is that I'm going to be doing a bit of travel this spring/summer so the 35k miles + $100 statement credit are going to be VERY helpful ($100 off a flight to Nashville and then a free flight to Denver).

Congrats and welcome to the AMEX family!! 

 

I think I would try to backdate it. 1998 would be a huge benefit for you.  

 

 

good luck

Re: Amex Delta APPROVED!

Don't have the card yet (of course) but I logged into my Amex account online and was stunned to see "Thank you for being a cardmember since 2000"!!!

I guess that means I'm backdated!  w00t!!!
