Delta Air Lines has sent a targeted email to some SkyMiles members for bonuses of up to 125,000 miles on the business versions of the Delta American Express cards. Those chasing status will prefer the MQMs included with the current public best offers for the Platinum and Reserve cards, but those who prefer redeemable miles will certainly make out well with one of these targeted offers.
- Delta and American Express are targeting some SkyMiles members for the following offers:
- Delta Gold SkyMiles Business: Earn 80K miles after $3K in purchases within the first 3 months (annual fee is $0 the first year, then $99)
- Delta Platinum SkyMiles Business: Earn 100K miles after $4K in purchases in the first 3 months + $100 statement credit after first Delta purchase with your new card within your first 3 months ($250 annual fee)
- Delta Reserve SkyMiles Business: Earn 125K miles after $6K in purchases in the first 3 months + $100 statement credit after first Delta purchase with your new card within your first 3 months ($550 annual fee)

These offers require a bit more spend than the current best offers, but they each come with more redeemable miles than the offers currently on our Best Offers page.
Whether or not that makes these offers better is a matter of whether or not you need MQMs for elite status.
For instance, the Delta Platinum SkyMiles business offer above includes 100K redeemable miles after $4K in purchases in the first 3 months (plus a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new card in the first 3 months).
Alternatively, the public offer on our Best Offers page only awards 90K redeemable miles but also includes 10K MQMs and a $100 statement credit after just $3K in purchases in the first 3 months (no Delta purchase required for the statement credit). If the 10K MQMs will help you reach an elite status tier, that offer could be better. If you already have plenty of MQMs, the additional redeemable miles may be more appealing even with the increased spending requirement.
Keep in mind that MQMs earned this year are rolling over into next year, so I might lean toward MQMs since I am hoping that I will continue to earn more next year to go with those I’ve earned this year and hopefully reach Platinum for 2023.
Note that the Delta Reserve offer includes far more redeemable miles than the public offer (which only includes 80K redeemable miles at the time of writing), but it is missing any MQMs (whereas the current public offer includes 20K). If you don’t need 20K MQMs (or you need far fewer), this targeted offer certainly could be appealing. Keep in mind that award tickets earn MQMs through 12/31/22, so if you use the 125K bonus miles on Delta flights that you take by the end of next year, you will earn MQMs on those flights.
Again, these offers are targeted and as such they will not be available to everyone.
