I just got 70k miles and 10k MQM on Delta using this link! Delta is being awesome now with their very generous lounge access for AmEx Platinum Card Members. Arriving from my flight back to Chicago I decided to duck into the lounge in Terminal 2 before picking up my luggage. First off they did they have amazing 3 ply quilted northern toilet paper and (MALIN+GOETZ) soap in a private, nicely appointed bathroom. Second I got my Sunday brunch of Mimosas, Bloody Marys and bagels and cereal for free. When I got my luggage, they had it behind a velvet rope with blue carpet awaiting me as a Sky Priority Member, didn’t even have to wait with the normies! No joke, it was amazing not to wait for the luggage at the conveyer like a sucker. Unfortunately the Sky Priority goes away next month because it was only a 3 month match to United Gold, so back to the normal world for us, since we didn’t fly 12,500 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or 15 Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) on flights operated by Delta or Delta Connection®.
The Delta 70k deal was not offered to me when I logged in and tried to apply for the card. In fact AmEx canceled my application in August, because I already have the Gold and Reserve versions of the card. This happened work out well for us because at the time they said that I could not have the Platinum and Reserve Delta cards at the same time. Plus the offer was only 50k at the time.
My wonderful and understanding churning spouse applied for the Platinum Sky Miles card herself today and added me as an AU. It worked, but we had to be incognito mode to get the 70k sky miles and 10k MQMs. You can simply click on the link here to get the same offer. According to reddit this is the largest offering of points in a the history of Delta AmEx cards. Also it appears to expire in November of 2017.
I know this goes completely against my idea of switching to cash back, but I am trying to spend the points before I even earn them this time. I already have the points slated for a family trip out to Sal Tlay Ka Siti, and better yet you can spend the rest of the points on wine at the lounge!
Amazing redemption of 2 cents per mile at the bar! Compared to the tickets we are looking at 73,500 points for $814 per ticket for 1.1 cents per mile.
This will allow me also to spend the rest of my Delta Sky Pesos and hopefully some UR on hotels.
