Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express Review

Pros & Cons

  • Hitting $1,000 in purchases with your card during the first three months snags you 30,000 Bonus Miles.
  • Purchasing directly from Delta earns you two miles for every dollar, so regular flyers can really rack up some rewards. Plus, all your other purchases bring in one mile per dollar.
  • You receive Priority Boarding, which means you’ll be situated on the plane before others and have first-go at the sometimes limited overhead storage.
  • The $95 annual fee after the first year may not be worth it if you aren’t a regular traveler.
