1. Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product. To qualify for the 60,000 bonus miles, you must make purchases with your Gold Delta SkyMiles credit Card that total $1,000 or more within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Miles will be credited to your account 6-8 weeks after you reach the spend threshold. Qualifying purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on a single Card account. Purchases to meet the spend requirement do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of traveler's checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of any cash equivalents. Additional Card Members on your account are not eligible for this offer. To receive the 60,000 bonus miles, your Card account must be active, in good standing, and not in default at the time of fulfillment. You can earn 60,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 or more in qualifying purchases on your Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to spend $1,000 may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving 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). For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.

2. Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product. One statement credit for $50 will be issued to your Card account after a Delta purchase is charged to your Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. 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. You can earn a $50 statement credit after you make a qualifying Delta purchase on your 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 first purchase may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving 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). For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.

Codeshare flights are not eligible. New Card Members and Card Members upgrading from another Delta SkyMiles Credit Card product will be eligible for the checked baggage fee waiver benefit after receiving their Card from American Express.

5. For each dollar charged on an eligible purchase in each billing period on your Card from American Express, you earn 1 mile. You earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) on each dollar of eligible purchases made directly with Delta ("Delta purchases"). Delta purchases are eligible purchases where Delta is the merchant of record, such as purchases via delta.com, phone reservations, or ticket counters, such as upgrades, miles, seat selection, Delta Sky Club(R) membership or passes, and pre-purchased meals, and in-flight purchases of food, alcoholic beverages and audio headsets, movies, shows and video games accessed via Delta's seatback in-flight entertainment, on Delta-operated flights (eligible purchases do not include any other in-flight purchases, such as in-flight wireless internet access, shows, and movies accessed via a personal electronic device and associated services, Delta DutyFree, and charitable contributions). Delta purchases include Delta Vacation(R) packages but not other all-inclusive packages. Delta purchases include purchases of qualifying Delta, Delta Connection(R) carrier and Delta Shuttle(R) flights taken with the purchase of a fare that is eligible for SkyMiles mileage credit. Additional miles earned for Delta flight purchases made with the Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express will be based on the total ticket price, including base fare, carrier-imposed surcharges and government-imposed taxes and fees. Eligible purchases mean purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents.

The business card allows you get the offer multiple times:
" For Business Use: Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product within the last 12 months."

You of course need an EIN for this.

* You can use the card to buy a $50 Delta gift card and receive a $50 statement credit.

This seems to work just like the last semi-targeted offer. Steps to get the offer:

1. Login into https://www.deltaamexcard.com nothing will happen, this is expected.

2. Then in the same browser, click on the link in OP: www.deltaamexcard.com/offer/60k-flight-active-offer-lp-2/

Good luck!

I can't get the second link to give me any offers. Not sure why. Maybe I'm not eligible for anything.

No, it cost about 100,000+ miles to go to Europe depending on when you leave and where you go. The Delta AMEX card also has a $95 annual fee (but free for first year for signing up).

So if the offer page just seems to refresh when I put my number and name in, does that mean I was not eligible?

EDIT: OK, I followed this post, and now it makes sense. Thanks!

Damn... I literally applied for and got approved for this card out of necessity on Monday (needed to book tickets through Delta and wanted an amex).

Unfortunately the over then was only 30,000 miles and this is double that offer. I'm eligible for this too as I see the offer when I log in through the link in the OP.

Any chance customer service would credit the extra points? I haven't received the 30,000 yet but I did make a $1,000+ purchase through Delta when I applied for the card and paid with the amex

AMEX is much less likely to do this than other banks are, but asking never hurts.

I assume if the site just "hangs" there, that you don't qualify for this offer?
