open a new delta account and you will be fine.
How do you know? Did you try?

Delta account. accounts for a transfer even 5 years ago. open a new delta account and you will be fine. only 1st transfer is 50% so decide how much first.

Probably a bad idea. If they catch you they'll probably close your account(s) and take away all of the miles

How are the redeeming values for domestic flights with Delta Skymiles?

Now it's getting tempting!
Can anyone here confirm getting 80% or is anyone going to try?

Have you ever heard of Delta closing down accounts or are you conjecturing?

It seems that's what people on FT are saying.

Keep us posted on how it goes.

It's a tiny fee ($0.0006 per point, up to $99), standard for MR transfers.

So you got 75k? Did you register for both offers? Did you register for the 30k offer first?

Heads up, if you go to this page when signed into your Delta account, you can see what Delta promos you're registered for. Make sure you see the 30%, the 50% and the MQM promo.

Thanks for the link for checking to see what I'm signed up for. It's only showing the 50% and the MQM. Not the 30% and when I try signing up again for the 30% it says I have already signed up for this offer, What should I do now?

I have a quick question.  I did a small transfer to Delta from AMEX last year, it was only 2500 points.  I take it i am now disqualified from the promo.  My question is though can I transfer form my Amex account to my wife's mile account and still get the bonuses? Or is there anyway I can still pull it off so that it will work for my account?  Thanks!

Yes, it appears to be based on the Delta account, not the AMEX account.

Yeah, I just opened a new delta account, my old one didn;t have much in it and I had no status, so I think I'll just use my new one and see what happens, not sure if I'll merge them.  I'm thinking of opening an amex platinum and then canceling to get the points.  do you know if  I have a gold account and cancel my platinum, do my platinum points go to my gold account or do i need to tranfer them out of amex before i cancel?
