Amex 5,000 Bonus points per $100 Delta transaction
« on: July 28, 2011, 04:45:04 PM »
I found this on some other website:

"As an American Express® Cardmember enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program, you're invited to enroll now to earn 5,000 Membership Rewards points for each Delta Air Lines purchase of $100 or more from July 15, 2011 to October 31, 2011."

https://rewards.americanexpress.com/olet/splash?campaignId=5kmr0715&offerType=deltabonus

Note*

You will have the best success by calling a general CSR  1-800-528-4800  (not MR or Plat CSR) adding Bonus ID 6760 to your account.

Also, I heard a rumor that this is not valid for gold cards.  YMMV


You may be able to use it with this if you have a paid upgrade or something:

Offtopic: Can we added more than one bonus code to our account? so could we stack opening promo bonus's?

Called again. Got automatically transferred to a plat rep. She said she's just been notified about this, and the only way to register is to go online or do the automated code on the website (which didn't work for me)

Anyone have any luck?

I called last night on a platinum card, they transfered me to membership rewards, and I asked if I was eligible for "the 5,000 bonus points for buying on delta." He said the bonus id and asked if I heard about it on flyertalk. I told him yes, and I told him if was eligible, it would better than using my delta card to book some tickets I wanted. He said 12 people had already called since he started work, applied the id, and said I was eligible  :)

In short, yes, I had success by talking with membership rewards on a platinum card.

Does Delta have GC's that you can use this for or what other options besides a paid upgrade?
it CAN be done!

Called MR and asked nicely and they applied the code to my account. Wonder whether it will work for taxes on award tickets

I'm getting a different answer every time I call. Is there anyone that thinks they can help me out?

Would it work for their GC's?

http://www.delta.com/help/contact_us/ticket_office_locations/ticket_office_services/delta_gift_certificates/index.jsp
"Balance transfers, Express Cash, Cash Advances, U.S. Savings Bonds transactions, American Express Travelers Cheques, and Gift Cheques do not earn Program points. This bonus points offer is only available with a minimum purchase of $100 for qualifying flights." Would GC's fall under Gift Cheques?

GC's are a real pain because they must be bought at the airport and redeemed there as well. There is also a limit of 3 at a time
