This week, the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is relaunching with an unusually large SkyMiles sign-up bonus of 50,000 SkyMiles. The Delta Gold Amex is a solid, recommended travel credit card year-round (see benefits below)-and it usually comes with a 30,000 SkyMiles sign-up bonus. With 20,000 extra SkyMiles on the table through July 6, 2016, now’s a good time to give this card a serious look if you don’t already have it.
Check out more on the card (and/or apply) here, or continue below!
50,000 SkyMiles sign-up bonus
Now through July 6, new Card Members will earn 50,000 SkyMiles when they spend $2,000 in the first three months (92 days). There’s more required spending than with the 30,000 SkyMiles sign-up bonus (typically $1,000 in the first three months), so consider that fact, but the payoff is 20,000 more SkyMiles. That alone is more than enough for an extra domestic reward ticket (if you book early enough).
Also: For every dollar spent with the card on eligible Delta purchases, two SkyMiles are earned. And Delta SkyMiles are redeemable with Delta and more than 15 partner airlines around the world (full list of Delta partners here).
$50 statement credit
As a new Card Member, you’ll also earn a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your card within your first three months.
No foreign transaction fees
Simple as that.
As a Card Member, you’ll receive priority boarding (Zone 1 on this list) on every Delta flight.
No annual fee in year one
In the first year of Card Membership, the $95 fee annual fee is waived.
