Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express Review

Our Detailed Review of This Card

Apply for This Card

The Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express (a NextAdvisor advertiser) is a new addition to the American Express arsenal that combines a no annual fee travel card with the opportunity to earn rewards for free Delta flights.

You'll earn 2 miles per $1 spent at U.S. restaurants and on purchases made directly with Delta, and 1 mile per $1 spent on all other purchases. Additional bonuses include 10,000 miles after spending $500 in the first 3 months, and a 20% statement credit on eligible Delta in-flight purchases like food and drinks. You can redeem your earned miles for Delta flights, but not for free hotel stays or other travel. Our Travel Rewards Credit Card Analysis has valued these miles at $1.19 for every $100 spent.

Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express includes perks like extended warranty protection, return protection, damage and theft protection, and car rental insurance. You'll also get card-member-only access to events in a city near you like concert tours, family and sporting events.

Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is best for loyal Delta customers looking to earn free flights and upgrades, but it doesn't offer free checked bags or priority boarding. If you're willing to pay an annual fee and those type of perks are important to you, take a look at its sister card, the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express.
