Overview

Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American ExpressThe Gold DeltaSkyMiles Credit Card from American Express often has a compelling signup bonus, but past the first year I don’t recommend this card for most people.

After the first year those who fly Delta often will probably get more value from the Delta Platinum or Reserve card.  If you do not fly Delta often, consider cards with points transferable to airlines (e.g. Amex EveryDay, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Amex SPG, etc.), or those in which points can be used to pay for travel (e.g. Barclays Arrival Plus, Capital One Venture, etc.), or even cash back cards (Citi Double Cash, Fidelity Investment Rewards Visa, Discover It Miles, etc.).

FM Mini Review: Priority boarding, and free checked bag make this a good option for Delta flyers who do not have elite status. However, those who can make use of an annual companion certificate would do better with the Delta Platinum card
