can't get the first and last name in the 45k offer - anyone manage?

1) Change the first name, last name and SkyMiles number in the link and then go to it

2) Press Save and Apply Later near the top (this will fix the misplaced fields issue)

3) Open the link in your email and apply (approval usually < 60 secs)

Not as great as the 70k offer they had last year, but...

You get 45k miles, $100 statement credit and $0 first annual fee. Details for 45k: After 1st Delta purchase you'll get 25k miles and $100 credit. Spend $5000 in 1st 6 months to get another 20k miles.

I just applied for this card with the 30k offer. How do I get them to match the 40k or 45k offer now?

I applied for the Delta Gold card around December 25th for the 30,000 point offer. I SMed a bunch of times to be matched to the 45,000 offer that was in effect when I applied for the 30,000. It went on for about 3 weeks and I finally went and called the number on the back of the card. (based on a post on the forum saying they called, spoke to a supervisor and got the offer). Without even having to ask for a supervisor I got the 45,000 offer (once I meet the spend requirement of $3,000 in 3 months),and on top received a 2,000 point credit, which she credited on the spot, for the SM hassle.

I meant read the full paragraph. You actually quoted the T&C.  The very next sentence answers your question:
Cardmember must charge a Delta purchase to their Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card within the first three months of Cardmembership. One $100 statement credit will be issued for the first Delta purchase made with the Card.
What's not to understand? Buy something from delta.  A flight, an upgrade, economy comfort, miles, etc.

I did a 2bm for Business Gold Amex and Delta Business Amex.
Got instant approval on the Gold, but Delta is in progress.
When I called they said an automatic freeze was put on the second app since the system doesn't allow two apps close together, and the system will unfreeze in 5 days and notify me of the decision.
1 - Does that mean another credit pull in five days?
2 - Also, what should I do now?
Thanks.

What you can do with Delta American Express points? I have about 35K of them. I could not buy air tickets with them, could not cell and could not transfer... Did I do something wrong or they are just hard to work with?

I tend to save my Delta points for tickets to Canada that otherwise cost a fortune. While Delta is known for having awful availability you can find tickets for 25,000 points often enough.

I SM-ed and then called, with no luck. (Seems that Amex has become extremely strict about not modifying offer terms after you apply.) Then I called again, spoke to a supervisor and reasoned with her it was like a bait and switch, and an applicant has no way of knowing that there are different offers with different terms. She pulled up the 45k offer but it showed that it expired 12/31/12. She was unable to pull up the 40k offer, since there is no code on it, and she said that it looked like it also expired a month ago. (I told her the terms say it's valid till 3/3/13.) In the end, I convinced her to bump me up to the 40k offer.
Bottom line - Amex is very tough with this now, but a supervisor can make it happen...

I called and spoke to a supervisor who was unwilling to budge and accomodate my request to switch to the 40K offer. Any other suggestions?
