Delta SkyMiles Cards Get New Benefit

Update: New marketing materials show the 15% discount for the Amex Delta Gold Card. The fine print suggests that this benefit will be available for consumer and business Delta Gold, Platinum, and Reserve cards.

The images below is part of a credit card offer that was sent out by mail:

Currently you can also find increased welcome bonuses for the three consumer credit cards.

American Express seems to be working on a new benefit for the Delta SkyMiles Reserve Card. A 15% discounts on SkyMiles awards appeared briefly on the list of benefits for the $550 annual fee card.

This “TakeOff 15” benefit gives you a 15% discount when booking an award ticket on Delta operated flights. It’s no longer showing now, and it is not live yet for current cardholders. I guess American Express is working on it and we’ll probably see an official announcement soon. I reached out to American Express for comment and will update if they provide any relevant information.

  1. There’s a route that I frequently travel using points. For the past couple weeks, I’ve seen a devaluation in SkyMiles of roughly 7.5 percent. I hope the 15 percent discount is not already embedded in the point prices I’m seeing. If yes, bad news. If not and the 15 percent discount is yet to come, the net on this route would appear to be a benefit of about 7 to 9 percent.
