20K amex is worth more than 25k delta in my opinion so a better deal to choose if you can only get one
My Programs Are Listed So That I Don't Forget Them :)

The question is what happens when I transfer the mr points to my friends account.  Who gets the MR certificate.  I assume there is no way delta can send it back to the MR person because they wouldnt have their contact info, but I have no idea.

Well it says Delta will email out an MR certificate to the Skymile account holder - but then to redeem it requires going to an AMEX site and submitting info about your AMEX card/MR account so it can be applied.  I agree you shouldn't have a problem, I wouldn't be surprised if the certificate can be put into anyone's MR account.

that makes sense, but is it sent to the persons email address who registered for the delta promo, or the contact email address on the amex transfer

also why are people saying that this is not stacking with the mr 50% transfer bonus.  based on what I have read, it doesnt seem to indicate that it wont stack.
one is given by amex at transfer time and the other is given by delta at some later point.

Amex to Delta 67% bonus
« Reply #37 on: July 27, 2011, 09:18:24 PM »
http://dmn.delta.com/ace_offers/julymr/

"For every 50,000 points you transfer, you'll be rewarded with a certificate for 20,000 Membership Rewards points–that's a 40% bonus back to you."

Because you get 20k MR back, it really only costs you 30k points.

So you get 50k SkyMiles for 30k MR points

That's 1.67 miles per point, a 67% bonus

Downside is its only in 50k increments and possibly you may not get 20k MR points back for some time

Where else has this been posted?

Anyways one potential problem is that if the amex and delta accounts are not in the same name, it may be hard to redeem the 20k voucher here: https://corporate.points.com/amex/redeem/RedeemCode.jsp

Wish someone from last time around got it and could tell us what happens, but i dont think anyone did.

Also if you transfer 100k do I get 2 x 20k vouchers, or only one?

MR = Credit Cards. I think after I posted I clicked 'report to mod' and wrote that if the mods think it should be moved they can move it.
