The bloggerverse has been alive with the latest Delta SkyMiles American Express card offers. No complaints, it’s not the worst deal in the world offering up to 60K bonus miles depending on the offer you go for. That’s good enough to have me thinking about a card for my small business, actually. Interestingly, I received an email today with another wrinkle on the latest offers…..more bonus miles for current cardholders that refer friends.
The usual offers for referring potential new card applicants is 5,000 miles. Well, as you can see above, Delta and Amex are upping the offer to 10,000 mile per approved applicant with a cap of 55,000 miles per calendar year. Always interesting times in the airline loyalty credit card business. Periodic promotions with enhanced bonus offers aren’t that unusual in the airline loyalty space, but this is the first time I remember a 10,000 mile bonus for referrals. Could’ve happened, just don’t remember it.
Did any of you who are current Delta Amex cardholders receive the same email? And yes, I’m happy to send you a referral. 😉
