Approved for Delta Gold Amex $14k

I'm very excited as I was just approved for a Delta Gold Amex with a $14k credit limit, despite being an 18 year old without a large credit history. It had a great mileage bonus (60k) and $150 statement credit which is perfect for a lot of upcoming travel I have planned!

Congrats.. I received an offer last December for the gold for 50K miles for 1K spend.

 

Also got approved today for the Delta Plat for 70K miles offer.

Re: Approved for Delta Gold Amex $14k

Did you have a targeted offer? That's a great SUB. I've only seen 50k miles + 10k miles / $50 credit or 50k miles $150 credit. Great job!

Yes, it was a mailer targeted offer.. It was for 50K miles for $1K spending.. Unfortunately no $50 or $100 statement credit. Overall its still good with the 1yr AF waived off.

 

I just closed my Amex Plat and transferred my left over 30K MR points to Delta and now Approved for the Delta Plat for the 70K miles offer.
