Delta is THE WORST program to get into. Chase united deal is good compared to this deal. If you want to get into AMEX, get AMEX plat or Starwood.
BTW there are few people (see FT) who can squeeze juice from already squeezed lemon if you know what I mean.

I just got this last month, however it was $30k miles after $1000 spend. Do you think they will give me this deal instead?

Found the terms below. So the charge must be posted as Delta.

I could think of the following choices:
1) Delta 24 Hour Wi-Fi Pass - $16
2) Buy GC - min $50
3) Buy miles - min. $70

One statement credit for $50 will be issued to your Card account after a Delta purchase is charged to your Gold Delta SkyMiles(R) Credit Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to make your Delta purchase may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in mailing your Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the 3-month period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). Purchases to meet the spend requirement include those made by both the Basic and Additional Card Members on the Card Account. Purchase must be made directly through Delta. A purchase may not qualify for the statement credit if it is submitted under a merchant code that has not been categorized as a Delta merchant code as of the date of the purchase(s). Credit will be issued as a Card Member statement credit approximately 8-12 weeks after your first Delta purchase. Additional Card Members on your account are not eligible for this offer. To receive the $50 statement credit, your Card account must be active, in good standing, and not in default at the time of fulfillment. For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card. If your application is not received by 9/8/2014, you will not be eligible for the $50 statement credit offer if your application is approved. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time

The Delta program is pretty bad and I remember the GC redemption option was super bad 2 years ago.

"Award Travel on delta.com is limited to travel on Delta, Delta Connection carriers and the following partner airlines: Aeromexico, Air France, Alaska Airlines, Alitalia, Hawaiian Airlines, KLM, Korean Air, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia."

One way to Hawaii requires (Saver)22,500 miles, (Standard)32,500, (Peak) 45,000.

When I was a delta gold card holder about 2 years back, cardholders were allowed to redeem points for cash for flight purchases. 10,000points = $100.00 at the time. not sure if that is still the case.

I heard the Delta miles are very valuable, so how many round trip air tickets can I get with 50K Delta miles?

Does this card get the regular Amex statement credit offers? If it is then this will be a great deal

Probably just 1 round trip flight. I'm a diamond member and over the years, the miles for booking a free flight has increased.

Have you tried using the points towards purchases at their site? I know you can buy luggage and other stuff like that.
