Yeah +1 for staying away from Delta Skymiles. Unless you're just going to get the card, cancel the card right away and use the miles I'd not waste your time. Domestic flights costs 2-5 times as much as Southwest or other Air Lines, and International flights often have to go through their partners so you 1. can't search a calendar view for availability but have to put in specific dates one a at a time only to find out there are no flights available and 2. have to plan your trip 331 days in advance otherwise the few 2 or so seats they have available using points will be taken.

If they had their crap together for searching flights and you could pick any flight they had available and use your points this might be worthwhile.

with delta you will have a hard time to get 2 tickets with 70k miles.. $100 does sweeten the deal some..

Is this for a new card or to add miles to an existing one?

I have about 200k in Delta Skymiles.

Please note that it is usually very difficult to find a flight for 25k miles. On average, most flights I see are 40k round trip.

International flights are VERY hard to find. Even though flights to Asia are listed on their tables, if you try to book a flight to Bangkok, for example, they tell you that the "low priced flights are sold out". I actually tried booking at their max 365 days in advance, and it was still "sold out".

Bottom Line: This is still a good deal, but you will probably only get 1-2 free round trip out of this.
skypesos are no good on DL metal..........use them on AF to get to french polynesia

+3, Delta Sky Pesos are much more difficult to use. I just spent 40K UA miles to fly to Hawaii, and then 68K Sky Pesos for another Hawaii trip.

The application page says $100 after any delta purchase. Is that correct? How does it work? Do I have to spend 5000 first before the delta purchase to get the $100? THanks

Never mind, saw that the delta purchase has to be done within 3 months, and it seems to be independent of the other 45000 miles

There was an article in the WSJ about a study of 23 international airlines, showing that Delta was literally dead last, in terms of how easy it is to redeem miles. Somehow I was not surprised.

i do agree that delta is fast becoming skypesos but it's still a spanking good deal for moi for travel to southeast asia. 80K flights were pretty much available in feb/march and september/october of 2012. 70K means i only need to transfer 10K from my million points of amex for an economy flight.

1 hard credit pull Smilie
Yea, but that assumes you need credit for something... I just lump any apps together, and then go through a quiet period.

The pulls don't bring my credit down badly at all, as it's high enough to not be bothered.

That said, I did also get the email approval, so this is a little different, the approval seems to not be instant in this case, they email about 10-60 minutes later if you're approved.

availability of delta/skyteam reward flights is much much worse than that of united/star alliance
you'll never get the free flights as easy as they advertise
All good points, but free miles are free miles.. I'm going to spend the money anyways, so putting it on the credit card and paying it off isn't hard to do. A couple hours of extra work, assuming any issues and calling to cancel at 6-11 months and I have 140k in the family for more trips.
