While Delta SkyMiles are certainly not the best miles currency out there, there definitely can be value with partner awards and also when Delta has flash redemption sales. Delta and American Express unveiled their revamped co-branded card lineup earlier this week. And as promised, a new slew of limited time Delta AMEX offers have now arrived, and they are on par with some of the best ever offers for these cards.
The New Changes To The Delta AMEX Cards
Here is a breakdown of all the Delta and AMEX card changes. There’s some positive and some negative, depending on what you value. All of the benefit changes will happen on January 30, 2020.
Some of the highlights (and lowlights, depending on how you see it) include:
- The Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express now includes American Express Centurion Lounge access when traveling on Delta operated or marketed flights at the expense of a higher annual fee.
- The no-annual fee Blue Delta SkyMiles Card from American Express gets additional benefits and none taken away.
- The Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express loses its MQD waiver.
- The Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express gets a bunch of points multiplier categories but spikes its annual fee.
New Limited Time Offers: Personal Delta x American Express Cards
These offers are valid for applications through October 30, 2019.
The Gold Delta SkyMiles card is offering 60,000 bonus miles after $2,000 in purchases within the first three months.
Additionally, get a $50 Statement Credit after you make a Delta purchase within the first three months.

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles card is offering a solid 75,000 bonus miles and 5,000 bonus MQMs after $3,000 in spend within three months.
And get a $100 statement credit after making a Delta purchase with the card within the first three months.
The annual fee is $195 but that increases to $250 on January 30, 2020. (See Rates & Fees)
Finally, the Delta Reserve (which will gain Centurion Lounge access) is offering a 75,000 bonus miles offer plus 10,000 MQMs after spending $5,000 on the card in the first three months.
There’s a $450 annual fee that will increase to $550 on January 31, 2020. (See Rates & Fees)
These are in line with some of the best ever offers we’ve seen for these cards. If you plan on picking up the Delta Reserve card or Platinum Delta SkyMiles card, you might as well do so now with the increased offers as well as the lower annual fee. The annual fee will increase for both of those cards on January 30, 2020 as the new benefits kick in.
