The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express can now take your air travel further.

As of May 30, the card has a more generous introductory offer for new cardholders: Earn 30,000 Bonus Miles after you use your new Card to make $1,000 in purchases within your first 3 months and a $50 Statement Credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. Terms Apply.

Previously, new cardholders earned 30,000 bonus miles after spending $1,000 in purchases during the first three months of opening an account. With the change, cardholders can get double the miles, but they will have to spend an extra $1,000 to earn them. The terms for the $50 statement credit remain the same.

For those who fly Delta frequently, the new incentive can help fund your next trip. And if your lifestyle requires you to spend enough on travel, you can potentially make up the cost of the card’s annual fee: $0 intro for the first year, then $95. The card features the following rewards and perks:

  • 2 miles per $1 spent on eligible purchases made directly with Delta.
  • 1 mile per $1 spent on other purchases.
  • Priority boarding.
  • A free checked bag.
  • 20% in-flight savings in the form of a statement credit when you make qualifying purchases.
  • A discounted rate for access to Delta Sky Club airport lounges.
  • Terms apply.
