If you don’t care much for status, or already knock your MQMs or MQS out of the park, the American Express Delta Platinum card is for you. With plenty of perks to make your journey easier, this card earns bonus miles with a fervor!
As with all Delta cards, you’ll get your first bag checked free, and priority boarding. Going above what the Delta Gold card gets you, the Platinum brings Delta SkyClub access for $39 per visit. You’ll also get a 10k MQM bonus when you reach $25k and $50k spend each year. Speaking of each year, your $250 annual fee is offset by a free domestic main cabin companion ticket.
To help you through the security lines, you can also get a credit up to $100 towards TSA Global Entry or PreCheck.
When it comes to earning those bonus miles to use towards travel, the Delta Platinum card offers a number of accelerated categories.
- 3 Points per dollar (PPD) spent on Delta
- 3 PPD on hotel spending
- 2 PPD at restaurants
- 2 PPD on groceries
- 1 PPD on everything else
When you consider that the average value per point (VPP) is two cents, that is like earning up to 6% return on expense! (ROE)
