Pros and cons

Pros
  • No foreign transaction fee

  • Annual Companion Certificate (Terms Apply)

Cons
  • Has annual fee

The Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card outdoes much of its competition, despite its steep annual fee of $250. In part, that's because it comes with a valuable annual companion certificate, which covers the cost of a round-trip domestic economy ticket for someone flying with you once each year. Terms apply. That benefit alone could potentially be worth hundreds of dollars.

The card also comes with a great welcome offer: Earn 40,000 bonus miles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) after you spend $2,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Plus, earn a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. Terms Apply.. It offers 2 miles per dollar spent on eligible purchases made directly with Delta and 1 mile per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases. Terms apply.

This isn't an ideal card for those who can't consistently take advantage of the companion certificate. But for those who can, it could be worth getting.
