Delta Skymiles Platinum Card Upgrade
« on: July 05, 2011, 01:33:58 PM »
I recently downgraded from Delta Gold to Classic bec of the annual fee.

Today I received an email from Amex offering to upgrade me to Platinum and to receive 10,000 miles after first purchase.

Email says I am "pre-approved." Will there be a hard pull? If not, is there any reason why I shouldn't upgrade and get the miles.

Also, will downgrading after my miles (card has $150 AF) post trigger a flag because I just downgraded?

Thanks guys.

I'd say you're safe on both counts. No pull, no flag.

I recently upgraded from my Delta Options to the Delta Platinum- the rep on the phone told me there would be no pull.

I also received the offer, and talked to the rep who said it does not have an expiration date. He told me I could upgrade to the gold for
10,000 miles, than once I recieved the miles I could downgrade again to the option level and use the upgrade they sent me to Platinum
and receive no hard pulls. Be careful though, I don't think the $150 is waived on the platinum.
