TLDR:
Although this card won’t get you higher loyalty status, with a generous welcome offer and low annual fee, this card is a relatively low cost way to earn SkyMiles® towards your next Delta vacation.

Review of the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express offers perks such as 2X miles on Delta purchases, priority boarding and your first checked bag free.  During your first year, the annual fee is waived and the welcome offer of 30,000 bonus miles is enough for a round trip ticket.   After your first year and once the annual fee kicks in, however, you may find the perks are pretty basic. 


Pro Tip:

Delta award traveling days have three different classifications: Saver Award, Standard Award, and Peak Award days. To stretch your miles further, look for opportunities to fly on Saver days and avoid the more expensive Peak Award days.



The Bottom Line
This is a good card for a Delta flyer who is content with using the card to earn SkyMiles®. If you’re interested in greater travel perks, including upgrading to a higher loyalty tier and continuing to earn at least one free ticket a year, the Platinum version of this card would be a better choice.
