Better Bonuses for Delta Cards Through Referrals
American Express and Delta Air Lines are offering increased welcome bonuses on consumer Delta credit cards. These offers are available through select referrals. That means that you can also earn a referral bonus when applying. Let’s see the details of these three offers.
Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card

- Annual Fee: $0 intro annual fee for the first year, then $99.

How to Find Them?
As I mentioned above, these offers are showing up though select referral links. You can try generating referrals on different credit cards and see if you can get these offers to show up. You can also try opening referral links with different browsers, or with a clean browser window.
These three offers are a big improvement from what is currently available publicly on the American Express website. If you are applying through a friend’s or family member’s referral link, they will also get a referral bonus.
Trying a dummy booking is another option for improved Delta credit card offers. Just start booking a flight on the Delta site and on the payment page you should see an offer to sign up for a credit card. Normally you get some type of statement credit in addition to the current signup bonus.

The referral bonus was also increased from 7,500 to 15,000 until 3/29/23
Thanks for this. I am a frequent flyer and regularly travel within the continental US and overseas to visit various countries. I have been using the TD Avion Card but these options look better. I will definetly look into it.
