Amex Gold Delta Approval!

The standard offer for the Amex Gold Delta card is ~30k-40k points for $1k spend. In December I received a mailer from Delta targeting me for 60,000 points for $2k of spend on one of their 3 annual fee Skymiles cards. I read it, chucked it out.

 

Fast forward to this week, I received a mailer from Delta targetting me with the 75,000 point offer! (50K if $2k spend in 3 months, an additional 25k if an additional $1k spend in 6 months) I looked into the value of these points, and came to the conclusion that the flights I would want to take value my points at 1.5cpp, so that would put me at $1050 in Delta miles which NEVER expire! Addionally, if I don't fly Delta enough, the Blue Delta card with $0 AF provides me a sought-after downgrade path for security.

 

I received instant approval for $5k with only a soft pull from Amex! (I was already preapproved on the website, so no surprise about the SP!) Only gotcha was that they robbed $5k from my $20k Amex BCE (my highest CL card) to make it happen, but I was fine with that Smiley Happy

 

My mum needs a new $3500 furnace installed in the next two weeks and needed a short-term loan for it. Told her I'd cover her with my card...only going to take me one swipe for those sweet points Smiley Wink

Congrats on the approval, I'm sure you'll get the 5k back to your BCE over time.

Congrats on the approval!!  I also got a mailer 1 week ago for the Delta Gold - 60k offer.  Very tempting but, can't have them all Smiley Tongue.  Congrats on the great SUB.
