New limited-time offer. The Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express can be a useful credit card if you fly on Delta even once or twice per year due to the free first checked baggage perk. Right now, they are running a limited-time offer. Highlights:

  • Limited Time Offer: 70,000 Bonus Miles after spending $2,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Offer expires 11/10/2021.
  • 70,000 Skymiles is worth at least $700 in Delta airfare. With this card, you get a minimum value out of your Skymiles via the “Pay with Miles” option. 70,000 Skymiles can reduce the price of your Delta ticket by $700 at the very least. (5,000 mile = $50 minimum redemption.) You can still book traditional award tickets and possibly get better value.
  • $$100 Delta Flight Credit: After you spend $10,000 in purchases on your card in a calendar year, receive a Credit to use toward future travel.
  • First checked bag free. Delta now charges $30 for the first checked bag, each way. That means this perk is worth $60 per person each roundtrip. For a family of four, this perk is worth $240 per person each roundtrip.
  • Annual fee is waived for the first year, then $99. (See Rates and Fees)

Here is the new rewards structure on card spend:

  • 2X miles at restaurants worldwide, including takeout and delivery.
  • 2X miles at U.S. supermarkets.
  • 2X miles on Delta purchases. 2 miles for every dollar spent on eligible purchases made directly with Delta.
  • 1 miles per dollar spent on all other purchases.

It is best to apply for this card during a limited-time offer, as you can only get the welcome bonus one per card version:

Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this or previous versions of this Card. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility.

I will be adding this limited-time offer to the Top 10 Best Credit Card Bonus Offers.
