Easy way to get 50,000 delta frequent flier miles

I received an email from delta a few days ago offering me 50,000 frequent flier miles for transferring $100,000 to Fidelity. The fine print reads that this has to be a non-retirement account and has to stay at Fidelity for at least 6 months, but if you've got investments (stocks, bonds, etc) elsewhere you can transfer them to fidelity and then transfer them back 6 months later.

Not a bad return for very little work.

Hmm - nice find - per this:

The Flight Deal | Up to 50,000 Miles/Points for Fidelity Account – American, Delta, United or AMEX

the deal can be for a number of different airline mile programs.

Not really necessary to do that. United and American both have credit cards you can open and get 50K miles for only a 3K charge. I did it for both and put the cards in a drawer later.

The American miles are more valuable than the Delta ones (aka Skypesos), in my opinion.
