You will notice on the just AMAZING current
55k Skymiles + 20K MQM (expired offer) Delta Business AMEX card offer (NOT my link btw), almost as soon as you land on the page, will pop up an offer to put in your e-mail address so they can remind you about it later. That sounds just great does it not? But should you do this for this or ANY credit card offer?
Sure enough I put in my e-mail and got the offer (it ended up in my SPAM folder but I did get it). And when I click on the e-mail it sure looks good. I mean, look at the expiration date that is the same as the expiration date for the current offer.
But things are maybe not all they seem. When I go to click on the apply now button to get to the offer, notice what happens to the offer details.
So what have we learned from this? A bunch. The most important, please, always, even when using my links, do screen shots. It is simple to do on a PC. Hit “prt sc” or print screen on your keyboard. Then open any photo edit program and go up to the left top to the word “edit” and then click “paste” and you have a screen shot. Then, either print it to paper or use software like PDF Creator to save it as a PDF!
The next most important thing to learn is NEVER EVER use these type of e-mail reminders. Start at the offer LINK and then do the above to make sure you get the points the offer shows. – René
