Delta and American Express have a portfolio of co-branded credit cards. We’ve just seen some new limited time welcome offers rolled out on these cards, which could represent a great deal.

While Delta SkyMiles is far from my favorite mileage currency, I appreciate that miles in the program have a “floor” value, based on all the ways there are to redeem SkyMiles for at least one cent each toward Delta purchases. In addition to having Delta’s “Pay With Miles” feature, there’s also the “TakeOff 15” benefit, whereby cardmembers can get a 15% discount on award tickets.

Details of Delta Amex limited time welcome offers

For applications through Wednesday, July 17, 2024, we’re seeing limited time welcome offers on six of Delta’s co-branded Amex cards, including three personal and three business cards. This makes it the ideal time to apply for these cards, if interested. Let’s go over all the details.

How many Delta Amex cards are you eligible for?

Each of these Delta American Express cards is considered a separate product, and you’re eligible for the bonus on each card once. In other words, you could get both the business and personal version of the Gold, Platinum, and Reserve over time, which opens up lots of opportunities. That means a vast majority of people should be eligible for the bonuses on at least some of these cards.

Amex’s standard card application rules apply.

Over time you’re eligible for the bonuses on all of these cards

Which Delta Amex offer is best?

Which Delta Amex offer is best depends entirely on what you’re looking for and what your travel profile is like. As far as my general advice goes:

  • If you’re just a casual Delta flyer, it’s hard to go wrong with the big bonuses and introductory annual fees on the Delta Gold cards
  • For those who fly Delta a bit more often, the Delta Platinum cards are great, given the annual companion certificate
  • For the frequent Delta flyer who is going for status, the Delta Reserve cards are the best cards for earning status, and also offer the most compelling perks
  • If you’re deciding between a personal and business card (and don’t want both), then I’d generally recommend a business card, given that the welcome offers are a bit better

Keep in mind that Delta’s “Pay With Miles” feature allows you to redeem your SkyMiles for at least one cent each toward the cost of a Delta ticket. That means 65,000-110,000 SkyMiles will get you a minimum of $650-$1,100 worth of airfare. With the 15% discount on awards for cardmembers, you can often do even better than that by just outright redeeming for awards.

Get lots of value using Delta’s “Pay With Miles” feature

Bottom line

Delta’s co-branded Amex cards are popular with consumers. If you’ve been considering picking up one of these products, now is the time to apply, given that they’re offering limited time welcome offers. While SkyMiles might not be a great currency for aspirational redemptions in long haul premium cabins, there’s still lots of value to be had with these offers.

    The reserve card allows in 2024 entry to the sky club with a delta boarding pass for the say if they flight + 4 vouchers for additional card
    In 2025 the club access will be more restricted
    The reserve companion certificate is good not just for the 48 states but also in the Caribbean islands

  2. dx Guest

    I'd say the personal Delta Gold and Platinum cards are the best deals for this round. The business cards have a much higher spending requirement for not that many more miles (10K). We've definitely seen higher bonuses on both the personal and business Reserve cards too.

  3. Manny Guest

    Annual fee of $695 that gets you 110K miles, which are good fro a free flight to Topeca, Kansas.

    Why not just pay for the best fare. These devaluations has made it harder to care for cards with high files that net you useless miles.
