Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card

The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card offers 2 miles for every $1 spent on purchases made directly with Delta, and 1 mile for every $1 spent on all other purchases. It also offers a wide variety of American Express benefits.

Insider Tip: You may be able to get the annual fee on this card waived. Just call customer service and ask nicely to have it waived, explaining that you’ve been a good, responsible customer for some time. Or, if you’re thinking of canceling the card, you can let them know that you’d consider staying with them if they waive the fee. In some cases they may offer a different incentive, like bonus points.

And if you’re in the military on active duty, you can submit an online request for SCRA benefits, which will probably include having the annual fee waived.
