Do you travel often for business, are you searching for a great promotional card? Do you happen to use Delta Airlines when you do? Then the American Express Business Delta Gold offer might be what you are looking for. They have a current sign up bonus of 50,000 points as well as a $50 statement credit offer on the books right now. This offer however expires come November 17th, 2015. The only catches for this intro offer is the requirement to spend $2000 with in the first 3 months of opening this account, to obtain the 50,000 bonus miles, and that you make a purchase with Delta within 3 months to obtain your $50 credit statement.
Not only do you get those benefits, you also get in flight savings for any eligible in flight purchase, in the form of a statement credit. You also get priority boarding, but this only applies to you, not any guests you may have with you, unless they to carry this card. You also earn 2 miles per dollar you spend on all purchases that you make directly through Delta Airlines, and you earn 1 mile on all other purchases, for every dollar spent. You also get access to the Delta Sky Club. For those who travel overseas, there are no foreign transaction fees involved with any purchases made on your card overseas. These cards are also EMV chipped, so you can fee more secure at home or abroad. There are also no blackout dates for any Delta flights on any purely delta flight, though of course this does not apply to any partner flights. You also get your first medium sized bag checked free when you carry this credit card.
There is however an annual fee, Amex seems to love their annual fees, but the good news is that for the first year there is no annual fee involved. If you have already had this card, but have had it less than 12 months, you can still apply for this offer, by calling Amex and requesting it. Do not travel for business or own a business, but would like this offer? No problem! This offer is also available on their American Express Delta Gold personal card. The big difference is with the business version you can get the bonus on this card multiple times, but the personal Gold card you can only get this offer once per lifetime.
This is a rock solid offer, but Amex has in the past offered better. For example not long ago they offered a 60,000 miles intro offer, and only required you to spend $1000 to obtain the bonus, while this offer has 10,000 less miles, and double the required spend. Yet if you plan on using Delta often you might want to jump on this offer today, other wise you might be able to score a better offer later. This offer is still much better than the current public 35,000 mile offer. Here is the direct link to the offer:https://www262.americanexpress.com/apply-card/dal/083/71
