First Checked Bag Free

Benefit is limited to Basic Card Members (not Additional Card Members) with the Delta SkyMiles® Gold, Delta SkyMiles® Platinum or Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Cards. Reservation must include the Basic Card Member's SkyMiles number. Fee waiver also available for passengers traveling in the same reservation as the Basic Card Member.

Offer terms and conditions subject to change. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions may apply. See delta.com/firstbagfree for details.

 

$100 Delta Flight Credit

If, in any calendar year, eligible purchases on your Delta SkyMiles Gold Card account total $10,000 or more, you will receive a $100 Delta eCredit (the "Credit") that can be used toward a Delta flight purchase. A Delta flight purchase is limited to purchases of Delta-marketed flights made on delta.com or with Delta Reservations. The Credit may be applied toward the Delta airfare portion of a Delta Vacations package. The Credit is only valid for payment of tickets, including fare, surcharge and government-imposed taxes and fees imposed on the air transportation. It is not valid for other types of fees (including bag fees, change fees, upgrades or other ancillary purchases or fees with Delta), and it does not have any cash value. The Credit expires within one year from the date of issuance and must be redeemed on or before the expiration date. If the value of the Credit is greater than the flight purchased, the Card Member will be able to use the residual value in another transaction before the expiration date. The Credit will be issued as a Delta eCredit, which will be available in My Profile on delta.com under Certificates, eCredits, and Vouchers. Visit delta.com/redeem for more information about redemption options. The certificate number, a redemption code, and redemption instructions will also be sent to the email address listed on your Delta SkyMiles account. Limit one Credit per calendar year. Please allow up to 2 weeks after meeting the purchase requirement for the Credit to be issued. On rare occasions (for example, when the name on your SkyMiles account doesn't match the name on your Amex account), the timing of the deposit could be delayed. The Credit is non-transferable from one Member's account to another but can be applied towards someone else's ticket without limitation. The Credit may be combined with up to 2 other Delta eCredits. If you transfer from a different Delta SkyMiles Card product to the Delta SkyMiles Gold Card, any eligible purchases you made on your old Card during the calendar year will count toward the new Delta SkyMiles Gold Card purchase requirement, after you make your first transaction on the new Card. The Credit may be redeemed for Delta flights purchased in currencies other than United States Dollars and will be converted to the currency of the country of payment at the Bankers Rate of Exchange in effect on the date of ticket issuance, and the rate of exchange must be indicated on the ticket. The benefit is only available to the Basic Card Member; however, eligible purchases made by Additional Card Members will contribute to the purchase requirement. Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and

 

services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, cash advances, purchases of traveler's checks, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person transactions, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Eligible purchases may fall outside of the calendar year in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions apply. See delta.com/amexflightcreditterms for details.

 

20% Back on In-Flight Purchases

Card Members will receive a 20% savings in the form of a statement credit on eligible pre-purchased meals, and in-flight purchases of food, alcoholic beverages and audio headsets, on Delta-operated flights. Savings do not apply to any other in-flight purchases, such as in-flight wireless internet access, and associated services, and charitable contributions. To receive the savings, Card Members must use their Delta SkyMiles American Express Card to complete the in-flight purchase. Savings will appear as a statement credit 8-12 weeks after the transaction is posted to the Card Member's Card account. Offer is subject to change without notice. Additional terms, conditions, and restrictions may apply. See www.delta.com/amex for details.

  

Miles on Eligible Purchases

1x Mile on eligible purchases: You will earn 1 mile for each dollar of eligible purchases charged on your Card.

 

2x Miles at U.S. Supermarkets: You will earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) for each dollar of eligible purchases charged at supermarkets located in the United States. Superstores, convenience stores, warehouse clubs, and meal-kit delivery services are not considered supermarkets.

 

2x Miles at Restaurants: You will earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) for each dollar of eligible purchases charged at restaurants worldwide. You may not get additional miles for purchases at a restaurant located within another establishment (e.g. a restaurant located inside a hotel, casino, or event venue) or for purchases made through third-party food delivery services outside of the U.S. For example, purchases made at a restaurant located within a hotel may be recognized as a purchase at a hotel, not a restaurant. You will not earn additional miles for purchases at bars, nightclubs, cafeterias, and convenience stores. 

 

2x Miles on Delta Purchases: You will earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) on each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with Delta (“Delta Purchases”). Delta Purchases are eligible purchases where Delta is the merchant of record, such as purchases via delta.com, the Fly Delta app, phone reservations, or ticket counters, such as upgrades, miles, seat selection, Delta Sky Club® membership, and in-flight purchases of food, alcoholic beverages and audio headsets on Delta-operated flights. Delta Purchases do not include other in-flight purchases where Delta is not the merchant of record, such as in-flight wireless internet access and charitable contributions. Delta Gift Cards and purchases made at deltashop.com and/or the Delta Flight Museum do not qualify.  Delta Purchases include Delta Vacations® packages but not other all-inclusive packages. Delta Purchases include purchases of qualifying Delta, Delta Connection® carrier and Delta Shuttle® flights taken with the purchase of a fare that is eligible for SkyMiles mileage credit. For purposes of this Card benefit, “Delta Purchases” also includes Delta Basic Economy fares, notwithstanding that these fares do not earn SkyMiles mileage credit for travel. Full terms: delta.com/memberguide. Additional miles earned for Delta flight purchases made with the Card will be based on the total ticket price, including base fare, carrier-imposed surcharges and government-imposed taxes and fees.

 

Eligible purchases mean purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person transactions, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Miles will be posted to your Delta SkyMiles account 8 to 12 weeks after the end of each month. To be eligible to receive miles, your Card account must not be canceled or past due at the time of fulfillment.  

 

Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell. We group certain merchant codes into categories that are eligible for additional miles. A purchase with a merchant will not receive additional miles if the merchant’s code is not included in a reward category. You may not receive additional miles if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as eligible for a reward category. For example, you may not receive additional miles when: a merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or a merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Additional terms and restrictions may apply.

 

Please visit americanexpress.com/rewards-info for more information about rewards.

 

Pay with Miles

Program is limited to Basic (not Additional) Card Members. New Card Members are eligible to use Pay with Miles upon receipt of their Card. Eligible only on Delta and Delta Connection® carrier-operated and ticketed flights booked at delta.com. Not available on other codeshare flights. Eligible flights for this program will be marked as Pay with Miles eligible. Miles redemptions must be in 5,000 mile increments, with a minimum of 5,000 miles for redemption, and the number of miles redeemed will be rounded up to the nearest 5,000 mile increment, as applicable. Use your Card to pay for the remaining ticket price when using Pay with Miles. Five thousand miles generally provides $50 of value. However, you may receive less value per mile if the cost of a ticket you choose to cover entirely with miles is not a multiple of $50. Qualifying Pay with Miles tickets will earn mileage, and will earn Medallion Qualification Dollars, for the portion of the base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges remaining that is paid in currency after miles are applied to the ticket total. Mileage redemption will be applied toward the base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges prior to being applied toward taxes and fees. In addition, qualifying Pay with Miles tickets are eligible for Medallion Qualification Segments, and Medallion Qualification Miles. Basic Economy fares do not earn miles or earn toward Medallion Status. Full terms: delta.com/memberguide. Pay with Miles tickets may not be combined with any other forms of mileage redemption, such as Award Travel tickets. Medallion Complimentary Upgrades on Pay with Miles tickets are subject to availability and may not be eligible on all flights. Except for tickets refunded under Delta's Risk Free Cancellation policy, miles redeemed with Pay with Miles cannot be re-deposited in the member's SkyMiles Account — even for fully refundable fares.  Residual value for a changed or cancelled ticket will be issued as an e-certificate applicable to future Delta purchases. For additional terms, conditions, and restrictions, visit delta.com/paywithmiles.

 

Monthly Installments with Plan It by American Express

Plan It is only available at checkout for purchases on delta.com and the Fly Delta app, and is not available at checkout for post purchases of seat upgrades, Delta Gift Card, Delta Sky Club memberships or any other options available for purchase on Delta.com. If you check out using Plan It, your purchase with Delta Air Lines will be automatically placed into a payment plan, subject to a plan fee. The plan fee is a fixed finance charge that will be charged each month that the corresponding plan is active. Your plan will typically be set up on your Account within 48 hours of the purchase but may take up to 5 days. If the merchant submits your purchase as multiple separate amounts you will have multiple plans created on your account.


At checkout, you will be offered 1–3 plan duration options. The plan duration options can vary based on a variety of factors such as the purchase amount, your account history, and your creditworthiness. If you are enrolled in an intro or promotional APR, you may see limited plan duration options during the intro or promotional period when you use Plan It on your account. After a plan is paid in full, it will be removed from your Account in the next billing period.


Your ability to use Plan It at checkout will be based on a variety of factors such as your creditworthiness, and your Credit Limit or Pay Over Time Limit, as applicable. The Pay Over Time Limit applies to the total of your Pay Over Time, Cash Advance, and Plan balances. We may not be able to create a plan if it would cause you to exceed your Pay Over Time Limit or cause your Plan balance to exceed 95% of your Account Total New Balance on your last billing statement. We will not be able to create plans if at the time the plan is requested or at the time the plan is set up on your Account, your Pay Over Time feature is suspended or your Account is canceled.  We will also not be able to create plans if, at the time the plan is requested or at the time the plan is set up on your Account, one or more of your American Express Accounts is enrolled in a payment program, has a payment that is returned unpaid, or is past due.


Plan It is available on Card Accounts issued by a U.S. banking subsidiary of American Express, excluding Accounts that do not have either a Credit Limit or the Pay Over Time feature. Only the Basic Card Member or Authorized Account Managers on the Account can create a plan. Prepaid Cards and products, American Express Corporate Cards, American Express Small Business Cards and American Express-branded Cards or Account numbers issued by other financial institutions are not eligible.
