Major card issuers continue to adjust their credit card line up, especially the welcome bonus offers for travel cards. American Express is the latest issuer to offer new welcome bonus offers across four of its Delta SkyMiles® consumer and business credit cards.
Eligible cards include:
The offers are worth 50,000, 60,000 or 70,000 bonus miles, depending on the card you have. If you meet the requirements for the welcome bonus, you can earn a generous amount of SkyMiles that can help offset the cost of future travel.

The higher your status, the more perks you'll be able to enjoy. Silver status provides entry-level benefits, such as waived baggage fees, basic priority boarding and a special $109 per year fee for CLEAR membership. If you move on up to the top-tier, Diamond offers the highest priority boarding, complimentary CLEAR membership and a dedicated VIP phone line to speak to a Delta reservations specialist.
