Nerdwallet Review

Author: Claire Tsosie

For Delta fans, the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is a relatively low-cost way to earn lots of extra SkyMiles. You'll snag an extra 5 miles per dollar spent on Delta flights with the general SkyMiles membership, along with 2 miles per dollar spent on Delta purchases (such as in-flight food or seat upgrades) and 1 mile for other purchases. The card offers a generous sign-up bonus, too: Earn 30,000 bonus miles after you make $1,000 in purchases on your new Card 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. The annual fee is $0 for the first year, then $95.

On top of those competitive earnings, the card boasts no blackout dates on Delta flights and gives travelers the option to redeem points for one-way tickets starting at 10,000 miles, a fraction of the sign-up bonus. This isn’t the best card for people who rarely travel or want to redeem miles on other domestic airlines, but if Delta’s your carrier of choice, it could save you a bundle.
