Amex Delta Gold Card, 50K Miles +$400 Offer Available When Booking a Flight

American Express and Delta Air Lines launched improved welcome bonuses on all six credit cards alongside a new benefit for 15% off awards. But it is possible to find even better offers. One way is to check referrals, especially for the consumer Platinum and Reserve credit cards. But for the Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express Card you can get a much better offer when booking a flight. Instead of the public offer for 70,000 miles, you can earn 50,000 miles and a $400 credit. Let’s see the details of the offer, and how you can find it.


  • Earn 50,000 Bonus Miles after spending $2,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months.
  • You can also earn a $400 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 6 months.
  • $0 Introductory Annual Fee For The First Year, Then $99
  • Offer ends 3/29/2023.

How to Find the Offer

To get this offer, you need to go to the Delta website and go through the steps of booking a flight. At the final page, “Trip Summary”, you should see the offer under your itinerary. A dummy booking is sufficient, meaning that you don’t have to actually book a flight. 

Check the ‘Apply for the Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express Card’ box and you’ll be taken to the application page, showing the same offer. Fill out the information, and submit your application.

Guru’s Wrap-up

If you get this welcome bonus to show up while booking a Delta flight, it is definitely worth going for, if you are eligible. This is a big bonus and the annual fee is waived the first year. And it’s superior to the current public offer.

Let me know if you see increased offers for other Delta credit cards while booking a flight.

However, it could also be worth checking referrals from friends and family members, as they can earn a big referral bonus, on top of the welcome offer that you get.
