Metal credit cards come in a variety of weights and designs, but a new limited-time offer from American Express soars above the competition.

From April 25 through June 5, 2024 (or while supplies last), new and existing Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card holders can request a card made of metal cut from one of two Boeing 747s that were retired from Delta’s fleet in 2017.

According to American Express, the card will also have a white, glossy finish “inspired by clouds.” What aviation enthusiast doesn't love plunking down a rare airline credit card?

While the unique card design is eye-catching, the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card recently underwent some big changes, including an increased annual fee of $650 and a cap of 15 Delta SkyClub visits annually unless cardholders spend $75,000 in a year on the card (beginning Feb. 1, 2025). New cardholders can also grab the following introductory offer: Earn 60,000 Bonus Miles after you spend $5,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership. Terms Apply.
