Delta isn’t one of the programs I keep a close eye on, but a 45,000 mile bonus always perks up my ears.
CreditCards.com has the offer through their CardMatch service. The nuts and bolts are you’ll earn 25,000 miles after your first purchase and an additional 20,000 miles after you spend $5,000 in the first 6 months. There’s no annual fee for the first year and if you fly Delta, the card comes with some other perks you might not already get:
- 2 miles per dollar spent on Delta purchases.
- First checked bag free for you and up to 8 other passengers traveling with you on the same record.
- Priority boarding.
- 20% discount on meals, beverages and movies onboard.
That might sound like a lot of money to spend on a card, but there are lots of everyday charges you should already be putting on your cards, and plenty of other ways to meet minimum spending requirements like this.
Don’t be scared by the requirement to enter your social security number. You should be able to leave that field blank, filling in your correct name and address.
A quick perusal of the Delta website shows the best offer on their site is 30,000 miles. This definitely seems like the best offer in the market.
