Our Verdict

Previous offer was 70,000 miles + $200 statement credit. This is an insane bonus, even if you don’t value skymiles highly this is still a $400 bonus (although does require a Delta purchase). Adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses immediately. American Express doesn’t match bonuses unfortunately, but sometimes they offer courtesy points if you applied for a lower bonus recently.
