Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card vs. Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card

Not sure which Delta SkyMiles card is right for you? If you’re not a road warrior but still fly with Delta three to five times per year, the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card might be a better fit.

For a $250 annual fee (Terms apply. See rates & fees), you still get your Companion Certificate when you pay taxes and fees (although it’s limited to Main Cabin domestic flights), a free checked bag when you fly Delta, priority boarding and the ability to purchase Sky Club passes at a reduced rate of $39 per visit whenever you’re on a long layover.

Earn 10,000 MQMs with Status Boost for every $25,000 in spending on the card in a calendar year, up to two times per year.

Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card vs. The Platinum Card® from American Express

For a different type of premium experience, look no further than The Platinum Card® from American Express.

The card’s annual fee is $695 (Terms apply. See rates & fees), but you get so many more perks: access to Delta Sky Clubs with a Delta ticket for the primary card member, access to The Centurion Lounge locations with a ticket on any airline, as well access to Priority Pass lounges once you enroll. You also get Gold Elite status with Hilton Honors and Marriott Bonvoy with enrollment.

You don’t receive Delta-specific benefits, such as free checked bags or priority boarding, but you receive a variety of travel credits, such as an up to $200 annual airline incidental statement credit on an eligible airline you can choose each year (enrollment required), $200 in hotel statement credits each on prepaid Fine Hotels + Resorts or Hotel Collection bookings, up to $200 in annual Uber Cash for eligible U.S. expenses when your card is connected to your Uber account ($15 per month, $35 in December) and up to $100 in Saks Fifth Avenue shopping statement credits with enrollment ($50 twice a year) to help make up for the annual fee.

From the redemption standpoint, you’ll earn Membership Rewards, which transfer to over a dozen airline programs, including Delta SkyMiles, and three hotel programs. Terms and conditions apply to benefits. See the card application for more details.

Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card vs. American Express® Gold Card

The American Express® Gold Card might just be a happy medium for those looking to earn flexible Membership Rewards points for a lower annual fee (Terms apply. See rates & fees).

Although you don’t get lounge access with this card, you can earn rewards at a rapid pace by using the card at U.S. supermarkets and on restaurant purchases worldwide. Earn 4 Membership Rewards® points per dollar at restaurants, plus takeout and delivery in the U.S., 4 Membership Rewards® points per dollar at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases, then 1 point per dollar), 3 Membership Rewards® points per dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or through American Express travel and 1 point per dollar on other eligible purchases.

The points can be transferred to a number of airline partners including Delta SkyMiles, Air France-KLM Flying Blue or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club and redeemed for Delta-operated flights. In some cases, the redemption rates you find with Flying Blue and Flying Club are lower than what you find with Delta itself.
