100,000 Mile Delta American Express Signup Bonus.. for Seattle-Area Residents, With Significant Delta Spend

THEmiketown tweets that American Express is offering up to 100,000 Delta Skymiles to Seattle-area residents who sign up for their co-branded credit card by December 31.

  • 50,000 miles after $1000 spend within 3 months
  • 25,000 miles after spending $2000 with Delta within 6 months
  • 25,000 miles after spending an additional $2000 with Delta within 6 months
  • $0 annual fee the first year.

To get the full 100,000 miles you need to spend $4000 with Delta within 6 months. Clearly they’re trying to throw miles at Seattle-based (read: Alaska Airlines customers) flyers, convincing them to switch carriers as Delta ramps up its Seattle presence. The once peaceful partnership continues to get frequent flyer-nasty.

50,000 miles is a decent offer for the Delta American Express on its own. But it’s only truly exciting for people who either already fly Delta or who will choose to fly Delta over the next 6 months. They may be SkyPesos, but a lot of them are still valuable!

  4. I live in Tacoma…Ya know, the Tac part of Sea-Tac =)

    And all I got was the 35,000 offer also. So I wonder if you have to have some sort of status with them? I’m just hoping now the BofA AS Visa will match it so I can get my 3rd visa… =)

  5. Got this via email couple weeks back and I am actually surprised it is getting attention now since I figured lot of people in Seattle got this offer. FWIW, I do live in Seattle proper, not one of the nearby towns.

  6. I just got approved for the 100k bonus offer. I live in the eastern part of Washington state. I received the direct mailer too and recycled it. But, I went to their website, entered in my last name and skymiles number and it offered me the 100k bonus!

  7. I received the offer via postal mail but couldn’t apply. I went to the website, enter my skymiles number and the last name and it only offered me 35,000k

  8. I received also via postal mail promotional card. Live in Seattle proper. FF with United. The website listed offered ONLY the 35K standard new customer offer. Called in to AMEX (the card offerer -#s listed on their promo piece) and multiple people HAD NO RECORD of the promo! They all said, “100K? Wow!” Asked me to fax (!) in a copy so they could “investigate” = said it would take 6 weeks! Another supervisor said he could accept an email, and asked me to send a digital pic of the promo piece. Again, 6 weeks. This was back in Nov/Dec. I got a call back in mid Dec, from AMEX 1, saying had been forwarded up for AMEX liaison with Delta to use. Nothing since, and no response to an email last week. I was wondering if anyone ELSE in Seattle actually got the mailer besides me? Now I see plus Ray, Victor, and Lizzie – that makes…4 of us? But the only 2 known to actually get the promo, Victor & Kalboz of SoCal! I can be a cynic, but I thought the dumbfounded AMEX peeps were sincere….

  9. I agreed to the offer, received the card, and charged $$ as instructed. Now Delta refuses to honor the agreement, saying it doesn’t apply to my Delta account (although I had the flyer sent to my name at my address). I’ve sent four letters, and have heard nothing but excuses in reply. #DeltaAmexScam @delta

  10. Anyone know how to apply for a American express platinum credit card that gives 100,000 miles bonus for signing up?
