For frequent Delta travelers, the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is a relatively low-cost way to earn lots of extra SkyMiles. You'll get 2 miles per dollar spent on Delta purchases, on top of the miles you earn for being a member of the SkyMiles frequent flyer program (5 to 11 miles per dollar, depending on status). All other purchases with the card earn 1 mile per dollar. The card offers a generous sign-up bonus, too: Earn 30,000 Bonus Miles after spending $1,000 in purchases in the first 3 months and a $50 statement credit after making a Delta purchase in the first 3 months with your new Card. 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.
