Amex just increased the publicly available sign-up bonus on the Delta Gold SkyMiles Credit Cards to 50,000 miles and a $50 statement credit, but if you are going to apply for the personal card you shouldn’t apply for this offer.

There is currently a better offer available on the personal Amex Gold Delta SkyMiles Card is for 50,000 bonus miles and a $100 statement credit after making $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months and making a Delta purchase.

This offer is only worth $50 more, but you should be able to access it on Delta.com by making a dummy booking and you might as well take advantage of it.

If you are applying for the Amex Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card then the best offer available is the 50,000 miles and $50 statement credit since the higher offer does not show up on the business card via a dummy booking.
