The Blue Delta SkyMiles Credit Card is a simple offer with no annual fee (Rates & Fees), designed for travelers who occasionally fly with Delta.

Cardholders get 2X miles per dollar for Delta purchases, and at restaurants too. 1X mile is provided for every other purchase.

An introductory bonus of 10,000 miles can be earned by spending $500 in the first 3 months, quite an easy bonus to attain compared to some other cards.

You won’t get many airline perks with this card — the main feature is a 20% discount on in-flight purchases on Delta flights. Other benefits include complimentary ShopRunner membership, along with some basic shopping and travel protections.

A 2.7% foreign transaction fee is charged for purchases made in foreign currency(Rates & Fees).

The Blue Delta SkyMiles is one of seven co-branded Delta cards from American Express, including three business credit cards. You can check out those other options for flying Delta below.
