Good luck! I'm debating this one because i have a mailer offer for 60k miles for 1k spend and I like stockpiling Delta miles for my yearly trip to South Korea via Korean Air and this offer covers 1/3 of the award cost.
If you can use the miles, i would go for it! Specially since it is only $1k spend (easy).
OP - If you fly Delta, this is a good card to have. My wife always flies Delta and actually received her Platinum Delta card in the mail yesterday; she got a mail offer to upgrade with bonus miles. I would wait to apply until November to make sure your balances and low UTL reports across all CRAs.
I too was pre-qualified for the Delta Gold on the Amex site. I noticed it while I was researching the new Blue Delta card. I applied and was denied -- and for some reason AmEx thinks I have been a customer of theirs for over 30 years, so I was a bit miffed. I called in and was told to re-apply, which I was weary of, and so now that's just sitting in Pending status.
All of AmEx has been buggy lately.
