    I locw Delta sjy miles American express cards. I have had both gold and paltinum. We traveled to New Zealand, Spain, France, Lake Tahoe, Calif. and many other places with our Delta Sky miles card. I also like that they send me a buy one fare and get the other free. also, the Platinum card insurance paid for my being robbed in Barcelona Spain, wreck of a car in Europe and has always been there . I think that it is a great way to earn miles to travel free. Yea for American Express Delta sky miles. ps I started with the Western airline, then to 2 or 3 other airlines that used the American express and have also traveled to Hawaii and Tahiti which was very expensive. Joining Delta Sky Miles with American express has saved us thousands of dollars and I appreciate the fact that we have saved money and traveled to so many wonderful place s and met wonderful people/

    I just back from a trip that I booked with my Delta card in which in the pass you did get priority boarding but on this trip I was advised that 2 months ago they changed that and you know need to go by zones and no longer getting on after family with children, business class etc

    I have a little under 200,000 miles on my card and was looking at flights to French Polynesia (Bora Bora). The flight options / dates when trying to redeem my miles are a joke. I am switching back to my Capital One Venture card and will just dwindle down my skymiles over the next several flights I have planned for weddings. I should have listened when they called them sky pesos.

    BIG downfall to this card is its an AMEX. I found over 60% of my monthly charges I planned to place onto this card wouldn't take AMEX. Had to find a visa/mc to utilize.

    Only the primary cardholder gets a free checked bag. I went around and around with an agent and supervisor in SLC one time about this. Read the T & Cs carefully. The primary cardholder must be on the reservation and flying to get one free checked bag. Even if the reservation is paid for by the secondary card there is no free checked bag.

    This is actually incorrect. My wife just flew to Seattle and I used my card to book the tickets, she showed her card but was still charged. I did get credit from Delta but next time I will use her card to book it and then the traveler can get 1st checked bag free.

  • "Each time you make a reservation and book a Delta flight with your card, the first bag you check in will be free." It is actually incorrect as it is linked to your skymiles number and it could be booked on any card. They do not ask to check your Amex card. It is linked to their system when they pull up your number. I confirmed this with a rep this morning but I would like to know if it was incorrect information. Thank you for sharing. I just signed up for your subscription.

How We Rate Credit Cards

At GET.com we compare credit cards and rate them objectively based on the credit card's features, interest rates and fees.

Cards are rated by our team based primarily on the basis of value for money to the cardholder. The GET.com team rates each card based on its annual fee, rewards, benefits, bonus, introductory APR, ongoing APR, flexibility (in how its benefits can be used and how rewards are earned and redeemed), and other card features.
