AMEX PRG Approval and need advise from PRG users please.

2 days ago i got approved for Amex PRG 50K miles / $1K spend offer. Also i got approved for Amex Green Card and the Delta Skymiles gold card with 35K miles / $1000 spend offer. I have an overseas trip coming and the bonus miles will come handy along with the 50K miles ihave currently with Delta.

My question is to the current prg users is, if we assume that i will use all the miles with delta, will PRG give me 1 to 1 conversion rate while transfering MR points to Delta?

Also, delta skymiles card is giving me 2x points for direct airline purchases, but prg is giving me 3x points for direct airline purchases. So if i need to pay for a ticket, would it not be smarter to use prg to pay the ticket purchase to get more miles, provided that i will not lose any miles while transfering them from prg to delta skymiles account.

So basicly the main question comes to, if i use delta or delta partners, is it smarter to use prg for airline purchases at 3x the miles, or the delta skymiles gold card at 2x the miles.

 

Thanks for the information.

Use PRG transfer to delta is 1:1.

Definitely use the PRG

 

For the offer, you need to search the net for it and often have to try multiple browsers and use incognito mode before it will appear for you.  Sometimes you have o refresh your browswer a lot of times before it will show.  Requires some effort for sure.

Yes it is worth it and the good news is that there is 4-5 hours of basketball on tonight so there will be plenty of effort put into it tonight.

Thanks for the advise.

For the 50K offer, all i had to do was open incognito, go to amex website. see the 25K offer, close the window, open again 5 /10 minutes later, as i was doing other stuff on the computer at the same time, and check it again, and i think i got lucky because i got it probably within the first 5 trials. And i would not worry too much about the ip address because i did this with the same ip and on the same computer i used to get approved for 2 other cards same night and also use to log in to my account. So i don't think you need to worry about changing ip and stuff. Incognito is more than enough.

AMEX will charge you to move the points over to Delta's reward program. I paid about $45 to move ~60,000 MR points from my PRG to Delta. Still was much better than paying for the actual tickets.

That's the excise tax that is passed on to card holders, it's not a Amex fee.  Max excise tax is $99 or .00006 per mile which equates to 1.65 million miles, lol.
