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?
You can have AMEX combine your MR accounts into one.

I just registered for both promos and when I look in my account for what mileage promotions i signed up for it only shows the 50% and MQM bonus, it doesn't show the 30% also.

And when I go to sign up again for the 30% promo it says that I already registered for it.

Does any one have all the promos show up on their account? Could it be that Delta is only letting the 50% or 30% but if you do both then they max you at 50%?????

I dont think anybody has seen the 30% listed, but it apparently still posts.

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

I think it takes 24 hours for the 30% promo to show on an account.

Not sure if anyone bothered to read the T&C's of the offer which clearly state:

"Bonus miles and MQMs will be awarded on a one-time basis per qualified member and will not be awarded more than one time per member, for example, on newly created SkyMiles accounts (or duplicate accounts) that are subsequently merged with an existing SkyMiles account"

im not at all familiar with award points as I have never done this before. would it make sense to transfer my 50k points from opening a charge card to delta if i want to use it to fly to uman? or are there better ways to transfer it to get there?
