Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
FM Mini Review: Priority boarding, and free checked bag make this a reasonably 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.
Card Type: Amex Credit Card
Earning rate: 2X Delta
Big spend bonus: Medallion Qualifying Dollar waiver (up to Platinum status) with $25K spend across one or more Delta cards (or $250K spend for Diamond status)
Noteworthy perks: Priority boarding and first checked bag free. Terms and limitations apply. (Rates & Fees)
The Gold DeltaSkyMiles Credit Card from American Express often has a compelling welcome offer, 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, 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, Discover It Miles, etc.).
