[DEAL GONE] 70k Delta SkyMiles + $100 statement credit + 10k EQMs - Delta Amex Business card

2/2/2017 This deal has expired.

The 70,000 mile sign-up bonus offer available mid-2016 has expired, but it is still available thru Feb 1 via referral offer.

If anyone is interested in earning Delta SkyMiles, or interested in earning Delta elite flyer status vai earning Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs), this is an excellent offer for both of those purposes.  Please contact me offline or via the comments if you would like to receive this referral offer via email.

Offer Details
  • Must apply by Feb 1, 2017, using the link in the referral email
  • 70,000 Delta SkyMiles when meeting minimum spend
  • 10,000 Delta Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) 
  • Earn the sign-up bonus by spending $5,000 or more within the first 3 months
  • $100 statement credit after a $100+ Delta purchase on the card in first 3 months
  • $195 annual fee (NOT waived the first year)
FYI:  This is the BUSINESS version of the card.  This means a couple of things:

  • It is a separate product from the PERSONAL Delta Amex Platinum card.  You can get approved for, and earn the bonus on, the business version even if you hold or previously held the personal version.
  • As a business card, this card does not hit one's personal credit report and therefore does not worsen one's situation with regard to Chase's 5/24 rule.

Good background article on HOW (and why) to apply for a business credit card:

Card Benefits / Details
  • Earn an additional 10,000 SkyMiles AND 10,000 MQMs by spending $25,000 on the card in a calendar year.  Spend $50,000 and earn an additional 10,000 MQMs
  • Priority Boarding (Zone 1) on Delta flights for cardmember and others on same reservation
  • Card benefits - first checked bag free on every Delta flight.
  • Earn 1 SkyMile per dollar spent.  Earn 2 SkyMiles per dollar on Delta purchases
  • 20% off eligible in-flight purchases via statement credit (meals, food, alcoholic beverages, headsets; in-flight wi-fi and charitable donations excluded)
  • Spend $25,000 or more on the card in a calendar year to waive Delta's revenue requirement component of elite status qualification.
Bottom Line
Great card, top-notch sign-up bonus.  Highly recommended.
  • This is the highest offer I've ever seen on this card.
  • The usual bonus on this card is about half this good - typically 35k SkyMiles and 5k MQMs.
  • This card is a business card and will not show up on your personal credit report.  Nor will it count toward your Chase 5/24 limit.
