Delta Airlines offers four different American Express credit cards that let you earn SkyMiles frequent flyer miles as well as other perks. Which one of these Delta credit cards is best for you? Here’s our take:
No Annual Fee Card Option:
The Blue Delta SkyMiles Card is a card that lets you earn Delta SkyMiles without paying an annual fee. It skimps on certain perks that the paid cards offer, but it definitely has its attractions. First of all, it actually gives you a more attractive formula for earning SkyMiles: you get 2 SkyMiles per dollar on restaurant purchases with the card, 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases, and 1 mile per dollar on everything else. (The Delta cards with an annual fee do NOT give the 2 miles per dollar on restaurant purchases, which is interesting.) You’ll also get 20% off your Delta in-flight purchases made with the card.
However, the Blue Delta SkyMiles card does not offer certain perks that frequent travelers LOVE. With this card, you will NOT get your first bag checked for free and you will NOT get priority boarding. For the occasional traveler, maybe no big deal. For the frequent traveler, that could be a dealbreaker.
Potential sign-up bonus for this card:
- 10,000 bonus miles if you make at least $500 in purchases with the card in the first three months.
