There are several good Delta credit card deals available right now. The Platinum and Gold SkyMiles cards are both offering big bonus miles deals. The Platinum SkyMiles card offers 35,000 miles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $1,000 in your first three months. The Gold card earns you 30,000 miles when you meet those same spending requirements.
Exclusive to Delta Airlines, both SkyMiles cards offer great perks like airline statement credits up to $100 and double miles on Delta purchases.
Here is some more information on Delta credit card deals:
- Earn 35,000 bonus miles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) with the Platinum SkyMiles card when you spend $1,000 in your first three months; 30,000 miles with the Gold SkyMiles card. Deals effective as of April 2018. The Platinum’s 70,000 mile and the Gold’s 50,000 mile bonuses expired in March.
- The Platinum’s total bonus miles are worth around $473 (not counting the up-front $195 annual fee). The Gold’s are worth around $405, with the $95 annual fee waived for the first year. Both SkyMiles cards give 2 miles per $1 on Delta purchases.
- Receive a $100 airline statement credit when you make a Delta purchase with The Platinum card in your first three months. Get a $50 credit when you make a similar purchase with the Gold card. Purchase must be made directly through Delta. You will receive statement within 8-12 weeks after the purchase.
- American Express allows an initial bonus on a particular card once in a lifetime. If you have previously owned a Gold or Platinum Delta SkyMiles card, you are not eligible for either of those bonuses.
If the current Delta credit card deals aren’t for you, there are a number of cards to choose from with higher initial bonuses. The Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Mastercard and American Express Platinum both get you 60,000 bonus miles when you meet minimum spending requirements.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred and Reserve cards earn you 50,000 bonus points when you spend $4,000 in your first three months. Bonus points for both cards provide better potential redemption value than the two SkyMiles cards.
