Starting on January 30, 2020, Delta is going to relaunch its entire lineup of Delta SkyMiles American Express Cards for both its consumer and business customers. In celebration of the relaunch, Delta and American Express are giving new cardholders limited-time welcome offers for those who sign up and are approved for one of the cards between October 1, 2019, and October 30, 2019.
Some of the new perks of the cards include double miles on restaurants worldwide, access to The American Express Centurion Lounge, or getting to Delta’s Medallion status faster. Businesses will get more targeting rewards as well, like more miles on U.S. shipping and U.S. advertising. Sandeep Dube, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Customer Engagement & Loyalty, talked about the catalyst of the upcoming changes:
“We’re constantly listening to our customers and spent the last year digging deep on what they expect from an industry-leading Card. The result is a diverse portfolio of redesigned Cards that will deliver rich rewards and benefits that give travelers unmatched options that fit their lifestyle needs,”
The companies have launched a website to highlight the rewards and benefits of the relaunched cards where you can see card details and what card perks best match your needs. The consumer cards are getting limited-time offers between 60,000 to 75,000 Bonus Miles and, as an extra bonus, a $50 to $100 statement credit.
