If you’ve been looking to give yourDelta
SkyMiles account a boost but have been held back by Amexâ€™s
once-per-lifetime rule, you may be in luck: Amex has been
sending out targeted offers with no lifetime language. That means
if youâ€™ve previously received a welcome bonus for a card like the
American ExpressÂ® Gold Card, you wonâ€™t be barred from
getting it again â€“ assuming you were targeted for one of these

How to find out if you were targeted
The Delta Amex card offers with no lifetime restrictions were
sent out via email. So check your inbox (and spam) for any offers
that may have come from Delta or Amex. Be sure to scroll down to
the terms and conditions and read carefully. If you donâ€™t see it
in the targeted email, click through to the offer page.
How to get targeted for Amex Delta cards with no lifetime
Thereâ€™s no magic formula for getting targeted for an Amex
Delta card with no lifetime restriction. What you do need is to
sign up to receive email offers â€“ ideally from both Amex and
Delta. While the last thing any of us need is more ads, it can
definitely pay off.
I actually have a separate email account tied to all of my bank
and rewards accounts. That way, the incessant ads and notifications
donâ€™t interfere with more important communication. I suggest you
do the same if you want to get targeted offers like this one
without having your primary inbox overrun with ads.
Which cards qualify for the targeted no-lifetime restriction?
Miles to Memories, the no-lifetime language applies to targeted
offers for the cobranded
Delta cards. The welcome bonus on these targeted offers is also
higher than the current public offers. All three cards offer 50,000
bonus miles after spending $2,000 in three months.
If you werenâ€™t targeted for these offers but still want to
apply for one of these cards, hereâ€™s a rundown of each current
publicly-available offer. Please note, these offers do include the
lifetime restriction, so you will not qualify for a welcome bonus
if youâ€™ve received one in the past:
American ExpressÂ® Gold Card â€“ Earn 35,000 bonus miles after
spending $1,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3
months of Card Membership.
Delta SkyMilesÂ® Platinum American Express Card â€“ Earn 40,000
bonus miles and 5,000 MQMs after spending $2,000 in purchases on
your new Card in your first 3 months of Card Membership. Plus, earn
a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your
new Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership.
Delta SkyMilesÂ® Reserve American Express Card â€“ Earn 40,000
bonus miles and 10,000 MQMs after you spend $3,000 in purchases on
your new Card in your first 3 months of Card Membership.
If youâ€™re targeted for one of these offers, it might be worth
it to apply for the card â€“ especially if youâ€™ve previously
received a welcome bonus for it. Normally, you wouldnâ€™t qualify
for a second bonus and 50,000 SkyMiles is a pretty good offer, so
Iâ€™d personally take it. If you have not been targeted and are
considering getting a SkyMiles card, itâ€™s worth mentioning that
the current offers are not the
highest weâ€™ve seen before.
So if youâ€™re able to wait, Iâ€™d recommend holding out for a
higher welcome bonus since youâ€™ll most likely qualify for it just
