40% Bonus on Transfers from American Express Membership Rewards to Delta

The 50% bonus for first-time transfers from American Express Membership Rewards to Delta Skymiles (with bonus of 25,000 elite qualifying miles for transferring 50,000 or more) ends today, but they’ve already come out with the next bonus and it’s available to anyone who registers.

Transfers of up to 99,999 miles earn a 25% bonus, and transfers of 100,000 miles or more earn a 40% bonus through June 30.

My general advice remains, however, don’t be tempted by bonuses, don’t transfer your American Express points without a specific award redemption on the horizon.

  1. Gary:

    I noticed that you often reference AMEX Membership rewards, but have not recently posted any offers for specific cards that can redeem AMEX points. Do you have any recommendations for such cards? Do they ever have promotional offers? Finally, is the Platinum Amex ($450 annual fee) worth it for someone who spends about 20-25k annually on a credit card and travels 5-10 domestic a year, at least once internationally? Any advice from you, or anyone else, would be greatly appreciated.
