We recently wrote about the current elevated welcome bonus offers on the personal Delta Amex cards. It turns out that business owners weren’t left out: Two of the Delta Business Amex cards are also currently offering nice elevated welcome bonuses.
Unlike with the personal card offers, you won’t be able to find these particular offers advertised on Amex’s website. However, as TPG Lounge member Justin B. pointed out, elevated welcome offers are available on Delta’s website through Apr. 3 for both the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express.
The information for the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
Gold Delta Business Amex
When applying for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card through the link on Delta’s website, you can get 70,000 SkyMiles after $4,000 in eligible spend within the first three months as well as a $50 statement credit after making your first Delta purchase on the card within the first three months. Additionally, the $95 annual fee is waived for the first year.
This offer includes 40,000 more SkyMiles than the current offer advertised on Amex’s website. At TPG’s current valuation of 1.2 cents per Delta mile, the 70,000-mile bonus is worth $840.
Aside from the welcome bonus, the Gold Delta Business Amex card earns 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases and 1 miles per dollar on all other purchases.
This card also offers a free checked bag on flights that are both marketed and operated by Delta (for the card holder and up to eight others traveling on the same reservation,) as well as Zone 1 boarding. Additionally, spending $25,000 within a calendar year on this card will exempt the card holder from the MQD requirement for Silver, Gold, or Platinum Medallion status with Delta. Spending $250,000 on the card within a calendar year would waive the MQD requirement for Diamond status.
Card holders are also eligible for a reduced price of $29 for Delta Sky Club visits, though only when flying on a same-day Delta-marketed or Delta-operated flight.
Platinum Delta Business Amex
An even larger haul of SkyMiles is available through the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card. Signing up for the Platinum Delta Business Amex card through the link on Delta’s website can get you 80,000 SkyMiles plus 5,000 MQMs after making $6,000 in eligible purchases on your card within the first three months. Additionally, you can get a $100 statement credit after making your first Delta purchase on the card within the first three months. However, unlike with the Gold version, the $195 annual fee is not waived for the first year.
This offer includes a whopping 45,000 more SkyMiles than the offer advertised on Amex’s website. The 80,000 SkyMiles available in this offer are worth $960 by TPG’s current valuations.
The Platinum Delta Business Amex card includes the same mileage earn on spending and same checked baggage, priority boarding, MQD waiver and reduced-price Sky Club visit benefits as the Gold version. Additionally, the Platinum Delta Business Amex card includes an annual companion ticket certificate for a round-trip domestic economy flight within the contiguous 48 states.
This card also includes the opportunity to earn additional SkyMiles and MQMs each year if you meet certain spending thresholds. If you spend $25,000 on the card within a calendar year, you’ll earn 10,000 SkyMiles and 10,000 MQMs. Hitting $50,000 of spend within a calendar year will earn you an additional 10,000 SkyMiles and 10,000 MQMs.
If you’re a business owner and are looking to earn some extra SkyMiles, signing up for the Gold or Platinum Delta Amex card through the links on Delta’s website may be a great way to do it. Unfortunately, however, the Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card was left out of this round of increased welcome bonuses. Remember, these offers expire on Apr. 3.
