Updated with new limited-time offers. American Express and Delta Airlines have various credit cards that offer special perks like free checked bags, priority boarding, and the ability to earn Delta Skymiles with card purchases. However, as you can only get the welcome bonuses once on each of these cards per person per lifetime (each card is considered different!), I recommend waiting until a limited-time offer to maximize your benefit. Here are the latest such offers:

Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card

  • Earn 30,000 Bonus Miles after spending $1,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months AND receive 50% back in the form of statement credits on purchases made directly with Delta with your Card within the first 3 months, up to $300 back. Limited-time offer expires 8/15/2019.
  • First checked bag free on Delta flights – that’s a savings of up to $240 per round trip for a family of four ($30 each way, per person).
  • Main Cabin 1 Priority Boarding.
  • $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $95.

If you plan to book at least $600 in Delta airfare in the next 3 months, that will get you the full $300 cash back. Delta now offers a minimum value out of your Skymiles via the “Pay with Miles” option. 30,000 Skymiles can reduce the price of your Delta ticket by $300 at the very least. (5,000 mile = $50 minimum redemption.) You can still book the traditional award tickets and possibly get better value. That makes this offer potentially a $600 value in the first year, even ignoring the free checked bags.

Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card

  • Earn 50,000 Bonus Miles after spending $3,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months and receive 50% back in the form of statement credits on purchases made directly with Delta with your Card within the first 3 months, up to $500 back. Limited-time offer expires 8/15/2019.
  • First checked bag free on Delta flights – that’s a savings of up to $240 per round trip for a family of four ($30 each way, per person).
  • Domestic Main Cabin round-trip companion certificate each year upon renewal of your Card.
  • Main Cabin 1 Priority Boarding.
  • $195 annual fee.

If you plan to book at least $1,000 in Delta airfare in the next 3 months, that will get you the full $500 cash back. Delta now offers a minimum value out of your Skymiles via the “Pay with Miles” option. 50,000 Skymiles can reduce the price of your Delta ticket by $500 at the very least. (5,000 mile = $50 minimum redemption.) You can still book the traditional award tickets and possibly get better value. Minus the $195 annual fee, that makes this offer potentially a $800 value in the first year, even ignoring the free companion certificate (which I have used many times) and free checked bags.
