You can currently earn up to 70,000 SkyMiles thanks to Delta Amex cards offering elevated bonuses, but you only have a week left to do so.

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express is now offering new cardholders 70,000 miles — worth $840, based on our valuations — after they spend $3,000 in the first three months. When they meet that spending requirement, new cardholders will also get 10,000 MQMs toward Delta elite status. New cardholders who make a Delta purchase in the first three months will see a $100 statement credit in their account. This card has a $195 annual fee (and no foreign transaction fees), and it gets you an annual companion certificate good for main cabin, domestic round-trip travel each year upon account renewal.

The Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express has a slightly lower, but still elevated, offer: 50,000 miles after you spend $2,000 in the first three months, and an additional 10,000 miles after you spend another $1,000 in the first six months. You can also earn a $50 statement credit by making a Delta purchase in the first three months. This card has a $95 annual fee that’s waived the first year, and no foreign transaction fees. Unlike the Platinum Delta Amex, it doesn’t offer the opportunity to earn MQMs toward status by meeting high annual spending thresholds, but both cards do offer a free checked bag and priority boarding when you’re traveling on Delta.

Delta SkyMiles aren’t the most valuable loyalty currency out there, but you can snag some good awards, and if you’re just a few thousand miles short of a desired itinerary, applying for either of these cards could do the trick. Just make sure to act by April 11 to get the higher-than-usual welcome offers.
