While browsing Delta’s site looking at the other Delta SkyMiles deals, I stumbled upon the “SkyMiles 25th Anniversary” Sweepstakes which has apparently been going on for a while now. Between now and the end of the year, every time you earn 1000 SkyMiles, you’ll earn an entry into a sweepstakes to win one of 25 Saturn SKY Roadsters (MSRP-$23,690 each prize). Winners can also opt to receive $15,000 in cash instead of the car.
To enroll to participate, visit www.delta.com/skymiles25 and provide your SkyMiles number.

Visit http://americanexpress.com/deltabonus or call 1-800-653-6051

- $5 for switching to paperless statements
- $5 for adding a cardmember
- $5 for adding 1 or more company for periodic bill pay
- An additional $10 bonus for doing all of the above.
This offer may be targetted, so it’s unclear whether you need to specifically sign up for the promotion to be eligible. If you didn’t receive a flyer in the mail about this offer, it would probably be advisable to clear this up with a CSR first.

- 10,000 bonus miles with your first purchase

Discover has decided to increase the number of Bonus Miles it offers for new applications of its Miles Card. Starting June 1, 2006, new applicants will receive 12,000 miles after their first qualifying purchase, representing a significant increase from the 5,000 bonus miles previously offered. So, if you were planning to apply for this card, you should wait until next month to do so.
The folks at FW have spotted this offer:

Offer Code: F1E9 (Expires 7/15/06)

This thread at FT points out an offer targeted at existing Delta Amex cardholders. Simply sign up for the promo by June 30, 2006 and receive a 5000 mile bonus:
www.americanexpress.com/renewmydelta53 for 5K. Also try 51-57..
51, 54 for 1.5K
52, 55 for 3K
53, 57 for 5K
54 for 50% off annual fee
I recommend only signing up for the 53 or 57 offer (identical), or you may not get anything. Note that the T&C do state that it is a targeted promotion, although I remember reading that the last time this promotion was offered, anyone was able to sign up and it did not actually require you to renew your Amex and did NOT charge an annual fee immediately.
Designed as a customer appreciation promotion, My WishList from American Express offers limited quantities of popular products at significant discounts to Amex cardholders.
As an example, in the last WishList promotion held in November-December, some of the prizes available were 37″ Panasonic Plasma TVs for $750, Microsoft Xbox 360s for $150, Range Rovers for $5000 and a luxury Hawaiian vacation (retail value: $35,000) for $2,000. Needless to say, since the quantities of these items are extremely limited, competition is fierce. At this time, the list of products to be sold in this iteration of the promotion is unavailable.

Via FT, when you apply between now and August 31, 2006, you’ll receive a 24,000 point signup bonus instead of the standard 8,000, enough for 3 free nights at more than 1,000 Choice Privileges locations. Frequent travellers will recognize this card as the one affiliated with the Choice Hotels chain, which includes Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion and MainStay Suites. Cardholders receive 15 points per dollar spent at these hotels, plus 2 points per dollar on all other purchases.
To apply, call 1-800-341-7589 or visit http://www.choiceprivilegesvisa.com. For current details, see this page.
This offer is only good for today, May 18. When you sign up for the Citi / AAdvantage Mastercard, you’ll earn 25,000 bonus miles after spending $250 or more. There’s no annual fee for the first 12 months and you will also receive a free companion certificate to use on an American Airlines domestic round-trip coach-class ticket with a fare of $299 or more.
Note that this is a marked improvement over this deal since it waives the annual fee and gives you a free companion certificate.
