If your calling up to apply, try asking for this card

https://www304.americanexpress.com/personal-card-application/apply/jsp/includes/DeltaGoldDualLanding45kBAUGoldOfferSkyMiles.jsp?ccsgeep=45662&openeep=44242

Its a 45k link for both personal and biz
The landingpage works but the links dont.

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

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...

Delta SkyMiles Gold Amex - 45K miles & $100 Credit
« Reply #12 on: January 30, 2013, 02:43:52 PM »
Not as great as the 70k offer they had last year, but...

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

My office buzzes to the JewishMusicStream!!!
