Accumulate frequent flyer miles with the Delta SkyMiles Gold credit card. Delta Airlines has teamed up with American Express to offer this air miles rewards based program designed to benefit individuals that travel often, regardless of whether it is for business or pleasure. While the fees for this card run a bit high, the extra expense can be easily offset by the accrual of rewards points.

Cardholders are rewarded with one mile for every dollar spent using their SkyMiles Gold card. Select purchases from gas stations, supermarkets, drugstores, Delta Airlines and the United States Postal Service earn two miles for every dollar spent. This feature is called the Always Double Miles Program. The rewards begin with the very first purchase with 15,000 bonus SkyMiles being earned.

An additional 2500 bonus miles will be earned if you add another card member with your application. When you apply for airline credit cards be sure to read all the terms and conditions of the offers that interest you. If you carry a balance then the APR should be one of the primary factors in determining which credit card is right for you.

The Delta SkyMiles Gold credit card comes with all the advantages of being an American Express cardholder including theft and fraud protection, the Buyers Assurance Plan, the Purchase Protection Plan and access to exclusive entertainment venues and events like concerts and plays. And of course, for the traveler there is a host of other services offered through American Express Travel Services.
