Delta Gold Card
« on: July 30, 2013, 05:04:03 AM »
Shalom L'kulam,
I have 50k delta points but no one will buy less than 100k.  What is the easiest and quickest way to get 50k delta points?  I have the Delta Gold card and already got the signup bonus of 50k (thats how i got the 50k to begin with).

Any ideas?

Amex and SPG both transfer to Delta if that helps.

Is there any way to transfer from an amex account to a delta account under a different name?

What kind of Amex account? From certain membership reward accounts, yes.

I was trying to downgrade my Delta Gold because the annual fee is due any day and they gave me no retention, but they wouldn't let me downgrade to any card except Hilton and Some Delta Employee Card, so I took the second option did anyone hear about this card already ? and did anybody have this experience of not being able to downgrade a card ?

I have someone flying Delta next week Monday and Thursday. If they apply for Delta CC and get approved, will it reflect on their Delta account and they will get free bags both flights, or how long does it take?

They will not have the card on hand before flight.

Worked like a charm, Skymiles account reflects being a cardholder and allowing free luggage.

Do you know how long it takes from CC approval till it reflects on the account?

Anyone know if on international delta flights which allow a free bag they will allow another bag with the gold card?

Hello, I have two quick questions about this card that I couldn't find answered elsewhere;

1) I see that it allows priority boarding with a basic economy fare, but will it allow me to select a seat in advance? If not, will any Delta card allow this? I don't see it as an explicit benefit for any of their cards.

2) Can I downgrade this card to Delta Blue after the first year to avoid the fee?

1) I have not seen such a benefit mentioned anywhere

2)
Can downgrade to the blue card.
