American Express issues a suite of co-branded Delta credit cards. Delta is known for its great customer service and solid onboard product among the “big three” US carriers, so understandably the airline has a lot of loyal flyers.

Signing up for a Delta co-branded credit card can be worthwhile, whether you’re looking to rack up SkyMiles, or get access to perks that can be valuable when flying Delta.

Well, at the moment some Delta Amex cards have new bonuses, so let’s take a look at the details of those.

Delta Amex cards offering special welcome bonuses

American Express and Delta have launched limited-time increased welcome bonuses on co-branded credit cards, valid through October 28, 2020. Both the personal and business versions of the Gold and Platinum cards have elevated bonuses, so below is a rundown of what you can expect (in particular I’d note the reasonable spending requirements, which probably reflect the times).

Are you eligible for these Delta Amex bonuses?

The bonuses on each of these individual cards is “once in a lifetime,” so you’re eligible for the bonus on each card once. In other words, if you’ve had the Delta Gold Personal you’re eligible for the Delta Gold Business or either of the Delta Platinum products.

On top of that, all of Amex’s usual rules for credit card applications apply.

Bottom line

American Express and Delta have brought back excellent bonuses on co-branded cards through October 28, 2020. It’s exciting to see these bonuses return, especially at a time when we’re otherwise seeing fairly limited increased bonuses among card issuers.

If you don’t yet have one of these cards and are eligible, it could definitely be worth applying.

    It would be helpful if you posted a simple way to determine if you have ever had the AMEX card you are thinking of applying for. I have had many cards over the years but can’t remember all of them.
    Thanks
