Amex Delta SkyMiles Platinum Review


Top perks

The Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card offers a variety of useful benefits.

Welcome bonus offer

You’ll earn 50,000 bonus miles and 5,000 Medallion® Miles (MQMs) after you spend $2,000 in purchases on your new card in the first three months.


The Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card has several bonus categories to boost your rewards. It earns:

  • 3x miles on Delta purchases
  • 3x miles on purchases made directly with hotels
  • 2x miles at restaurants, including takeout and delivery
  • 2x miles at U.S. supermarkets
  • 1 mile per dollar on all other eligible purchases
  • Terms apply

Free checked bag

You get a free first checked bag. The cost of your first checked bag with Delta is $30, so this benefit can add up quickly.

Annual companion certificate

Each year that you renew your card, you’ll receive a domestic main cabin round-trip companion certificate. This allows one companion to join you without paying for a ticket. Payment of government-imposed taxes and fees of not more than $75 is required. Terms apply.

This is one of the card’s most valuable perks, especially for couples. It can easily be worth over $500 if you use the companion certificate for expensive airfare.
