Delta’s credit cards, issued by American Express, are rolling out bigger welcome bonuses for a limited time, beginning Jan. 30, 2020.

These changes are in addition to a larger overhaul of the portfolio that was announced in September 2019, which also is effective as of Jan. 30 and includes changes in annual fees and adjustments to the cards’ rewards and perks.

High-end travelers, take note: Four of the cards — the Platinum and Reserve consumer and business cards — are also switching from plastic to metal.

Here are the changes to each card’s welcome offer:
