Overview

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card is a great choice for those who fly Delta domestically with a companion at least once per year (thanks to its annual companion certificate), and for big spenders who seek Delta elite status. For the later, the Platinum card offers 10,000 MQMs (Medallion Qualifying Miles) and 10,000 bonus miles after $25,000 in calendar year spend, and again at $50,000 spend.

At $195 per year, the card isn’t cheap, but it does offer priority boarding, free checked bags, and an annual economy companion certificate each year upon renewal. Unfortunately, this certificate can only be used for domestic economy tickets and those seats are not upgradeable. Still, the companion certificate alone can make the Platinum card worth keeping.

Those seeking even more MQMs through spend, and/or better perks such as SkyClub access and first class companion certificates should consider the Delta Reserve card instead.

The personal version of this card is almost identical, but the business card has a few advantages:
