I haven't posted in this forum in a long time. I've had my Gold delta skymiles credit card for a year now, and have racked up a good number of them using it. I got charged my first annual fee, and called them to find out how to get my annual $99 companion ticket. I found out as I'm sure many of you are aware, that after I got my ticket, the rep informed me this benefit would no longer be available to me.
He did say that I would have no problem upgrading to the Platinum version of the card. I've decided for my needs, the $150/yr to get a "free" companion ticket is the best route and want to upgrade! However, I'm wondering how to get the best possible "signup bonus" since it lists three different ones on the amex website. Would calling do better? How does upgrading on amex affect your credit score?
Thanks in advance!
