I read a post on DoctorOfCredit.com that you can apply for the Delta Amex Gold card and receive a 50,000 miles sign-up bonus after spending only $1,000 within 3 months and receive a $50 statement credit after your first Delta purchase! I have not tested this yet, but I do plan on applying for the card before the offer expires! 50,000 miles is enough for 2 domestic round-trip tickets within the continental U.S.!
In order to apply for the card, here’s what you need to do:
1. Call 877-621-2639
2. Reference POID number BDGK:0002
3. Deal expires on August 10, 2014.
With the Delta Amex Gold card you’ll also get Priority 1 boarding and you also get your first piece of luggage for free! If you fly Delta just a few times a year, this can pay for itself to cover the annual fee of $95! Since I live in Minneapolis where one of Delta’s main hubs is, this card will come in quite handy for me!
