  • Annual Fee: $195

Tips:

1. It is suitable for Delta’s frequent flyer who could earn more miles to redeem for airline tickets.

2. It comes with higher annual fee, but you’ll receive a Companion Certificate each year after renewing your card. The value of the Companion Certificate can be worth more than the annual fee. Here are some rules about the Companion Certificate:

– The companion ticket can only be used on Delta-operated flights in 48 states of continental United States.
– You must book the ticket no later than 14 days before the flight. The duration of trip needs to be at least 3 days.

– You must pay for both tickets with your Delta SkyMiles Credit Card.
– Companion Certificate only works for the following class: L, U, T, X, V.

Restrictions when you apply:

1. You can only apply for one AMEX credit card per day, but the rule does not apply to AMEX charge cards. If you apply one credit card and one charge card on the same day, AMEX are going to combine hard-pull (for credit report). Therefore we suggest the reader apply for another AMEX charge card at the same time when applying AMEX credit card, so the applicant will only be hard-pulled once.

2. Please check the status from this link if you do not get instant approval. We strongly suggest you to call AMEX Reconsider Line to ask them about reconsidering the application if you do not get instant approval or be denied. Generally, you will have a chance to be approved after providing the information they need when calling them. The phone number of AMEX Reconsideration Line is 1-800-567-1083.

Notes:

There are three versions of Co-branded Delta credit card from AMEX, and this card comes with the higher annual fee. However, this card offers the Companion Certificate, which can be valuable when you have the need for travel. Card-holder can also enjoy the benefits when flying with Delta, such as priority boarding and free first checked-baggage. You can also get access to AMEX Offer,  which offers additional cash/points rebate for spending.
