Hot on the heels of Chase’s new United TravelBank card American Express has announced their own no annual fee version of their Delta SkyMiles credit card. The Bule Delta SkyMiles credit card seems like a much better offering than the new United card due to the fact that it actually has a good 2x category, restaurants.
American Express’ new card is the right way to do it when it comes to what a no annual fee card should offer. The standard anybody should look for in a no annual fee credit card is a 2x or 2% category of some use for them. This is going to be the perfect card to product change to if I ever get tired of my Platinum Delta SkyMiles card.
- No annual fee
- 2 miles per dollar spent at U.S. restaurants
- 2 miles per dollar spent on purchases made directly with Delta
- 1 mile per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases
- 20 percent savings in the form of a statement credit on all eligible in-flight purchases when flying with Delta
- A welcome offer of earning 10,000 bonus miles after spending $500 in purchases on the Card within the first three months of Card Membership for new Delta SkyMiles American Express Card Members
This is how an airline no annual fee card should be done. As a frequent Delta flyer this is the perfect card to hold if you don’t want any of the premium card offerings. The restaurant bonus category is perfect for most people who eat out frequently and is an easy way to build up miles for their next trip.
