Attention, small-business owners who fly Delta Air Lines: If you were thinking about getting an airline-branded credit card, now might be the time, as welcome offers take off.

American Express, which issues Delta credit cards, is dramatically hiking the number of frequent-flyer miles new cardholders can earn on its three business credit cards for the airline. New bonuses are enough to land two or potentially three economy-class round-trip domestic airfares. What’s more, the cards will come with an introductory 0% interest period on purchases — a feature they didn’t previously offer.

However, the new bonuses have higher spending requirements.
