You can now earn 10,000 Delta SkyMiles when you refer a friend to a Delta American Express Credit Card. Normally the referral bonus is 5,000 bonus miles, but now you’ll earn 10,000 bonus miles for each successful referral.
You have until July 6, 2016 to refer a friend who applies and is approved for a new Delta Amex Credit Card. You can earn up to a maximum of 55,000 bonus miles per year.
Also until July 6, 2016 all of the Delta Amex Credit Cards are offering limited-time increased sign-up bonuses, which also makes it a great time to refer a friend.
You’ll earn 10,000 miles per referral and whoever you refer will earn the higher than normal sign-up bonus.
Increased Sign-up Bonuses
Currently the Gold Delta Amex Credit Cards are offering 50,000 SkyMiles after spending $2,000 within the first 3 months.
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express
The Platinum Delta Amex Credit Cards are offering 60,000 bonus miles and 10,000 MQMs after you make $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card
I recently applied for both the personal and business Delta Gold Credit Card and think that now is a great time to grab them with the 50,000 bonus miles. I value the 50,000 mile sign-up bonus upwards of $600+ which makes the offer quite impressive.
Note: Remember that you won’t be eligible to earn a sign-up bonus on an Amex card which you have previous had in the past.
How To Refer A Friend
If you are a current Delta Amex cardholder you can easily refer a friend using this link.
All you need to do is select the type of card you have and enter your friends referral information.
You can also get your unique referral link by sending a referral to yourself and extracting the link from the email you receive. This can make it easier to share via social media, etc.
