55,000 Bonus SkyMiles and 20,000 MQM Sign Up Bonus On Platinum Delta Amex! AMAZING!

This has been a stellar week for getting large sign up bonuses on business credit cards. First was the 20% increased bonus on the Ink family of credit cards, good only this week for National Small Business Week. These offers include the Ink Bold and Ink Plus cards with a bonus of 60,000 points instead of the standard 50,000.


I have been holding off on my latest app-o-rama, hoping for some better deals on a few of the cards I really wanted. The one card I have been patiently waiting for a better deal on has been the Platinum Delta SkyMiles card. Typical offers include around 25,000 redeemable miles and 5,000-10,000 MQMs (Medallion Qualifying Miles) which is just not enough to get me to pull the trigger.


Today Christmas came early for me! Currently American Express is offering a phenomenal sign up bonus on the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Card. A whopping up to 55,000 bonus SkyMiles with up to 20,000 of them being MQMs!!! This is more than I could have hoped for! While the 55,000 redeemable miles is excellent by itself, it is the 20,000 MQMs that has me grinning like school boy in love!

Plus a standard feature of the Platinum Delta Amex is MilesBoost which will award you with 10,000 bonus miles & MQMs after spending $25,000 annually and another 10,000 bonus miles & MQMs after spending $50,000 annually.


With the addition of the minimum spending thresholds to qualify for elite status coming in 2014, the Delta Amex cards have become very desirable. The only exclusion to the new MQDs is to spend $25,000 annually on a Delta co-branded Amex card.

    I’m pre-approved to upgrade to this card (I have the Gold Delta AMEX) when I login to my AMEX account, but the offer is only 5K SkyMiles and 5K MQMs. Is upgrading different than if I applied through your link, or could I call AMEX and ask for a match?

    • The Points Traveler says:

      Unfortunately the offer terms specifically state the offer is NOT available to anyone who has had any of the Delta Business cards in the last 12 months. So would not be able to get this offer, unless by chance you are actually referring to the Gold Delta PERSONAL card. If that is the case you could apply for this business card and still get the offer. But it would be a new account, not an upgrade

  2. Michelle C says:

    Sorry but I’m new to the credit card game. Could an individual get this card even though it is a business card? What would I fill in for the questions asking about business informations?

    • The Points Traveler says:

      If you have any form of self employment, you can apply. Doesn’t need to be a corporation, LLC nor have a tax id, sole proprietors can apply. Does not need to be a large business either, nor does it have to be profitable yet. But when it comes to answering the business question just be honest.

    • Mike U says:

      you must, technically, have a business to apply for a business credit card; however, a business could be a profitless start-up, eBay sales, a business idea, etc. Almost everyone could justify a business card. If you don’t have a EIN, just use you legal name and SSN when filling in the business information on the credit ap.
