If you are a Delta loyalist and have a Delta Sky Club lounge in your home airport then this card is for you. In
addition to unlimited lounge access to Delta Sky Clubs when flying on Delta flights, you will also have access to
American Express Centurion Lounges when you book and pay for a Delta flight using this card.
The lounge perks are slightly less enticing than the Platinum Card® from American Express, but the extra Delta benefits such as Companion Passes, Elite Status boosts, upgrades, free checked bags, etc. make this card invaluable for the frequent Delta flyer. You also save a little on the $550 annual fee compared to the Platinum Card.
Looking for a more versatile card?
The Platinum Card® from American Express provides more lounge access than any other Credit Card or program on the planet. It includes unlimited visits for you and two guests at all of these major lounge programs:
- Centurion Lounges (simply by showing up and flashing your card)
- Priority Pass lounges (you can enroll in this perk from your Amex account - Priority Pass will mail you a membership card!)
- Plaza Premium lounges (again, just show up to the lounge and present your card)
- and Delta SkyClubs (when traveling on a Delta flight - again, simply show up at the lounge and give them your platinum card and boarding pass)
By having this card in your wallet you will have multiple lounge options almost anywhere in the U.S. or abroad!
Oh, and don't be intimidated by the $695 annual fee. Between the annual statement credits, Amex offers, travel insurance and more this card can really pay for itself every year.
