After searching on Delta’s website I found yet another 50,000 mile signup offer for the Amex Delta Gold card! If you visit Delta.com, you will see offers on the site for 30,000 or 35,000 miles. So how did I find the 50,000 mile offer?
Here’s how to find a 50,000 mile offer on the Delta Gold card on Delta.com:
1. Search for a flight (doesn’t matter which one, any flight will do.)
2. At the checkout page, look on the bottom of the screen where they advertise the Gold card. You should see a 50,000 mile offer.
3. Click the box that says you’d like to apply for the card and click the “Enter Passenger Info” button on the bottom.
4. The next page will popup an application window. Go ahead and apply and if approved, you’ll get 50,000 miles!
Food for thought: I’m not sure if you are required to actually purchase a flight in order to qualify for the 50,000 miles. I imagine that if you’re approved, you don’t have to finish the purchase of your flight ticket. If anyone finds the answer to this, please let me know!
UPDATE: The 50,000 mile offer is now public on AmericanExpress.com. You must apply by September 8th, 2014 in order to get the bonus.
