You can still receive a sign up bonus of 50,000 Delta Skymiles after $2,000 in purchases and a $50 statement credit after your first Delta purchase with a new Gold Delta SkyMiles credit cards from American Express. The card has a $95 annual fee which is waived the first year. But if you have the card, you can also earn 10,000 Delta Skymiles for each approved referral.
This is double the usual referral of 5,000 points but there’s still a limit of 55,000 bonus miles per calendar year that you can earn through referrals. To receive the Referral Bonus, (a) you must submit referral(s) by November 17, 2015 and (b) the referred individual(s) must apply to the specific offer online through the e-mailed link provided by American Express and be approved by November 17, 2015.
There was recently another offer my American Express with 60,000 Delta Skymiles, so you might want to wait for that offer, considering that you can only receive bonuses once per lifetime for personal cards.
Read more about the offer and the card in our previous post. Keep in mind that through the referral, the spending requirement is $2,000.
