The Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card is designed for frequent flyers, offering a welcome bonus of 40,000 miles when spending $1,000 within the first three months of getting the card. This is down from their latest 70,000 offer and their typical 60,000 offer, so you may want to hold out to see if the bigger rewards come back.

You also get additional perks with the card such as free first checked bag when flying with Delta, $100 in Delta flight credit when making $10,000 worth of purchases in a calendar year, and $50 off the cost of a flight with every 5,000 miles you redeem.

The fine print

  • Eligible purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on a single Card account.
  • Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits.
  • Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of other cash equivalents.
  • American Express reserved the right to determine whether you've engaged in abuse, misuse, or gaming in connection with the welcome offer in any way or that you intend to do so (for example, if you applied for one or more cards to obtain a welcome offer(s) that they did not intend for you; if you cancel or downgrade your account within 12 months after acquiring it; or if you cancel or return purchases you made to meet the spend threshold), and to then take action as they see fit – freezing or taking away the points credited, and/or canceling the card.
  • Your card account must not be canceled or past due at the time of fulfillment of any offers.

Why American Express?

As one of the most recognizable brands in the world, the odds are that you've heard of American Express. This New York-based financial institution has been around for over 170 years and is best known as a credit card issuer, with more than 20% of all American credit card transactions coming from an Amex card.

But did you know that Amex offers more financial products than just credit cards?

Through its Salt Lake City-based consumer banking subsidiary, American Express National Bank, Amex also offers online high-yield savings accounts and Certificates of Deposit.

Amex doesn't often run promotions for their savings products (and when they do, they're typically targeted offers that you'll need to receive directly), but they do have several bonus offers and incentives for new credit card holders.
