Fee Credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck® 

Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Basic Card Members are eligible to receive one statement credit every 4 years for the application fee for Global Entry or every 4.5 years for TSA PreCheck® when charged to their eligible Card through any Authorized Enrollment Provider. Card Members on eligible accounts will receive the statement credit for a 5-year program option, all other term options are not eligible to receive the statement credit. Card Members will receive a statement credit for the first program (either Global Entry or TSA PreCheck) to which they apply and pay for with an eligible Card. The charge for the application fee can be made by the Basic Card Member or any Additional Card Members on a single Card account. Card Members can receive no more than one credit for up to $85 for TSA PreCheck or $100 credit for Global Entry (but not both programs), depending on the program for which the Card Member first applies.  American Express has no control over the application and/or approval process for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, and does not have access to any information provided to the government by the Card Member or by the government to the Card Member. American Express has no liability regarding the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck programs. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) (for Global Entry) and U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) (for TSA PreCheck) charge an application fee to process each respective application regardless of whether the Card Member's application is approved. The Department of Homeland Security may suspend acceptance of applications on any basis at its discretion. American Express will provide a statement credit for the application fee regardless of the decision made by CBP (for Global Entry) or TSA (for TSA PreCheck) but will not provide a statement credit for subsequent application fees charged to the same eligible Card within four years, even if the original application is rejected.

 

Membership for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck is per person, and a separate application must be completed for each individual. For additional information on the Global Entry and TSA PreCheck programs, including information regarding the application and/or approval process and for a list of participating airlines and airports, as well as the full terms and conditions of the programs, please go to www.globalentry.gov for Global Entry and www.tsa.gov for TSA PreCheck. The Global Entry and TSA PreCheck programs are subject to change, and American Express has no control over those changes. The statement credit benefit applies to the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck programs only. Other program applications including, but not limited to, NEXUS, SENTRI and Privium are not eligible for the statement credit benefit.

 

Please allow up to 8 weeks after the qualifying Global Entry or TSA PreCheck transaction is charged to the eligible Card account for the statement credit to be posted to the Card account. American Express relies on accurate transaction data to identify eligible Global Entry and TSA PreCheck purchases. If you do not see a credit for a qualifying purchase on your eligible Card after 8 weeks, simply call the number on the back of your Card. Card Members are responsible for payment of all application charges until the statement credit posts to the Card account. To be eligible for this benefit, Card account(s) must be active through the time of statement credit fulfillment.

 

Global Entry Fee Credit Option:
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk international travelers upon arrival in the United States. Global Entry membership also includes access to the TSA PreCheck program with no additional application or fee required. If a Card Member applies separately for TSA PreCheck with the same eligible Card, the TSA PreCheck application fee is not eligible for a statement credit. To receive the $100 Global Entry statement credit, Card Members must pay for the $100 Global Entry application fee with an eligible Card. Global Entry members can opt in to TSA PreCheck by entering their Global Entry membership number (PASS ID) in the "Known Traveler Number" field each time a flight reservation is made on a participating airline. Alternatively, Card Members can add their Global Entry PASS ID to their frequent flyer profile(s) with the participating airline(s) and then ensure that their frequent flyer number is entered for each flight booking. If Card Member is approved, membership into the Global Entry program is valid for five years and subject to the program's terms and conditions. You must reapply for the Global Entry program every five years for continuous benefits.

 

TSA PreCheck Fee Credit Option:
TSA PreCheck is an intelligence-driven, risk-based program managed by TSA that allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airport checkpoints for domestic and international travel. The TSA PreCheck application program is a Department of Homeland Security Trusted Traveler program. Enrolling in TSA PreCheck does not guarantee selection for expedited screening each time a passenger travels. To receive the TSA PreCheck statement credit of up to $85, a Card Member must pay for the TSA PreCheck application fee through any Authorized Enrollment Provider with their eligible Card. If Card Member is approved, Membership into the TSA PreCheck program is valid for the duration of the plan that the Card Member selected and subject to the program's terms and conditions. Card Members will not receive a statement credit for a plan duration that is less than five years.

 

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.

 

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.

Status Boost

If in any calendar year eligible purchases on the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Card are $30,000 or more, the Basic Card Member will be awarded 15,000 Medallion Qualification Miles ("MQMs" as defined in the Delta SkyMiles Membership Guide and Program Rules). If in that same calendar year eligible purchases on the Card are $60,000, $90,000, and $120,000 or more, the Basic Card Member will be awarded an additional 15,000 MQMs for each threshold. The close of the calendar year is December 31, without regard to the time of the year that the account is opened. This means that for the first year of Card Membership, the Card Member’s eligibility period for the Status Boost® benefit may be less than twelve months. Eligible purchases means purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees, 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. Eligible purchases may fall outside of a 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 Card Member(s) are not eligible to receive MQMs through the Status Boost benefit, however, all eligible purchases by the Additional Card Member(s) will count towards the Basic Card Member’s spend level to reach the Status Boost thresholds. To receive the MQMs, your account must not be canceled or past due at the time the MQMs are posted to your account. MQMs only count towards Medallion Status. MQMs cannot be redeemed toward Award Travel or other Delta redemption options.  Card Members are only eligible to receive one annual bonus per threshold per calendar year for each type of eligible Delta SkyMiles Card (e.g., Platinum or Reserve) that is linked to the same SkyMiles account. MQMs can be kept by the Basic Card Member or gifted to someone else. MQM gift recipients must have a valid SkyMiles account. If a MQM gift recipient is not designated within 30 days of the MQMs being made available, the MQMs will be deposited in the Basic Card Member’s SkyMiles account. You can claim or gift MQMs by logging into delta.com and reviewing your SkyMiles account. Eligibility for Delta’s Medallion Status is not based on MQMs alone. Delta SkyMiles members can qualify for Medallion Status through a combination of miles or segments flown and annual spending on qualifying flights. Basic Economy fares do not earn miles or earn toward Medallion Status. Full terms: delta.com/memberguide. For more information about the requirements for Medallion Status, please visit www.delta.com/en_US/skymiles/medallion-program.

 

MQD Waiver

If the Medallion Qualification Dollar (MQD) thresholds are not met for a Qualification Year, you can still qualify for Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallion Status if you have earned the required Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) and make at least $25,000 in eligible purchases within that Qualification Year on your Eligible Card. If the MQD threshold is not met for a Qualification Year, you can qualify for Diamond Medallion Status if you have earned the required MQMs or MQSs and make at least $250,000 in eligible purchases within that Qualification Year on your Eligible Card. A Qualification Year is from January 1 to December 31 of a given year. The close of the Qualification Year is December 31, without regard to the time of the year that the credit card account is opened. This means that for the first year of Card Membership, the Card Member's eligible purchase period may be less than twelve months. Eligible purchases means purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees, interest charges, cash advances, purchases of travelers' checks, person-to-person transactions, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Eligible purchases may fall outside of the Qualification 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. This may result in a delay in receiving the MQD Waiver. You can confirm whether you have met the eligible purchase threshold for the MQD Waiver by logging into your SkyMiles account on delta.com or in the Fly Delta app. Eligible purchases made by Additional Card Members on the Basic Card Member's Eligible Card Account will count toward the eligible purchase threshold. Eligible Cards are the following: Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Card, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Card, Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Business Card, and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business Card. Other Cards are not eligible for the MQD Waiver. However, if linked to the same SkyMiles number, eligible purchases made on a Delta SkyMiles® Blue Card, Delta SkyMiles® Gold Card, Delta SkyMiles® Business Card, or Delta SkyMiles® Gold Business Card will continue to count towards the MQD Waiver spend threshold requirements. This benefit extends to Basic Card Members only. Additional Card Members are not eligible.

 

Earn Medallion Status

Medallion Qualification Miles received in 2021 above member's received Medallion threshold level will be rolled over to 2022 and will count toward 2023 Medallion status qualification. In addition, all Medallion Qualification Miles earned between January 1 and December 31, 2021, will count towards 2022 Medallion status.

 

Miles on Eligible Purchases

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

 

3x Miles on Delta Purchases: You will earn 2 additional miles (for a total of 3 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.

 

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.

Global Dining Access by Resy

The Global Dining Access program (“GDA”) is a benefit available to eligible Card Members. “Eligible Card Members” are account holders of Platinum Card® or Centurion® Card from American Express, Business Platinum Card®, Business Centurion® Card from American Express, Corporate Platinum Card® or Corporate Centurion® Card from American

Express, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card, and Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card (and any Additional Card Member(s) on their accounts). GDA may not be available for Cards issued from some countries.  GDA provides eligible Card Members with (a) access to exclusive reservations, (b) Priority Notify, which allows GDA members to set notifications to be in the first group notified when tables become available before they are made available to other Resy users, and (c) access to exclusive events. GDA reservations are accessible through the Resy App and Website (“Resy Sites”) and Concierge. Some features of GDA, like Priority Notify, may not be available through Concierge. To access this benefit through the Resy App, you must download the Resy App; or if you already have the Resy app, ensure the latest update is downloaded. When using the Resy Sites, create a Resy account or log into your existing Resy account and add your eligible Card to your Resy account. If you are assigned a new Card number, you must update the Card number in your Resy account. When you use GDA, a badge will be placed on your Resy profile, letting restaurants know that you are a member of the GDA program. Reservations are based on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event of a reservation cancellation, you will be subject to the restaurant’s cancellation policy. Generally, same-day reservations that are not booked by GDA members are released back to restaurants at certain times of day that vary across restaurant policies. American Express and Resy make no representations or warranties regarding the availability of reservations, events, and/or experiences, which shall at all times be subject to availability and the discretion of the applicable restaurant. American Express and Resy are not responsible for informing the restaurants of any dietary restrictions or for a restaurant being able to accommodate such restrictions. There is no cost to you for booking services through GDA, although you are responsible for any purchases or fees you authorize to be charged to your Card account. GDA reservations and events are intended for personal use only and cannot be resold or used for commercial purposes. By participating in the GDA program, you are accepting these GDA terms and conditions, which are in addition to and do not replace the Resy Sites’ Terms of Service. To be eligible for this benefit, your Card account must not be cancelled.
