Sometimes special credit card offers come up that are too good to pass up. And it’s times like these that I’m glad I have a need for additional credit cards.

Yesterday I received an email from SkyBonus, Delta’s business loyalty program, offering 55,000 Delta SkyMiles and 20,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles after becoming a Business Platinum card member and meeting minimum spending requirements. This offer is publicly available through this link (expired) and is good for applications through July 7th.

Offer Details

Earn 25,000 bonus miles (5,000 of which count as MQMs) after your first purchase on the Card within the first year of Cardmembership.1 Earn an additional 30,000 miles (15,000 of which count as MQMs) after you make $5,000 of eligible purchase on the Card within the first 3 months of Cardmembership.2

Success With My Application

On a Delta flight yesterday, I applied through a Gogo in-flight internet session and was approved within a few moments.

Bottom Line

If you are searching for a few more MQMs to qualify for elite status this year, consider The Platinum Delta SkyMiles®Business Credit Card from American Express OPEN offer (expired) for up to 20,000 MQMs. In addition, you can earn 10,000 MQMs after your first purchase with the Apply for the Delta Reserve card, and up to an additional 30,000 MQMs with Miles Boost after meeting spending requirements.

That is up to 60,000 MQMs just with two credit cards and not even setting foot on a Delta flight.

Did you take advantage of this offer yet? Are you thinking about it or going to pass?

  1. The Platinum Delta Busines AMEX bonus is a great offer. If I’ve gotten the Delta Reserve Business Card within the past 12 months, is this bonus available?

  2. I received the SkyBonus offer as well. I’ll definitely get the biz delta plat card as the promotional 20k MQM’s would help get me closer to diamond status. Once I start flying Delta weekly again I’ll probably get the reserve card but not now.

  3. If I have 2 businesses would I be able to sign each business up for a card and still qualify for the 20,000 MQM?

  4. Hi Ryan – By the terms and conditions stated below, I don’t think that is possible.

    “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product or any other Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card account within the last 12 months”

  5. I have the Delta Amex Reserve card, but no *Business* card. Am I reading this right, that I can get these bonus miles?

  6. I have the Delta Amex Reserve. Followed the link on this page.
    It took 60 seconds to get approved for the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card from AX.
    I received the email telling me that I will get the card within two days. Waiting to cash in those MQM’s.
    Thank you!!

  7. If I’ve gotten the AMEX Delta Reserve Business within the past 12 months, will I still be eligible for the bonus with this card?

  8. Hi Vic – Excellent news! Congratulations. Enjoy those MQMs and hopefully a higher status next year.

    Hi Douglas – The T&C’s say it won’t in your situation. Sorry.

  9. I currently have the Amex Delta Gold Skymiles Card (since Oct.2013) but rarely use it (The Delta website rarely gives the best price) and am considering cancelling it. That way, if a good offer for an Amex Platinum Skymiles card comes around, I may be eligible (I read somewhere that for personal cards, it must be 90 days since you had another Delta Amex personal card).
    Do you see any problems (credit score maybe) with this plan?
