flown.... Smiley Very Happy

 

I wished it would include the free bag option. Then I'd apply for it in a heartbeat. I don't need the lounge option or any frills but the free bag would be awesome.

 

Also, you can only do pay with miles from Gold upwards. These two lower-end Delta cards aren't really useful for me even though I do fly Delta mostly.

This looks like a horrible reward card!!!!  Your only real benefit is the 20% off in flight purchases.

I saw that several years ago. Not entirely new. Just not all that advertised.

Re: Delta Skymiles Option Credit Card from Amex!!! Is it New???

I got the Delta Gold card in order to get the 45,000 mile sign-up bonus miles that were being offered at the time but had no intention of paying the annual fee after the first year. I didn't want to lose the credit line, so when I called Amex to say I didn't want to pay the annual fee, I asked for the credit line to be rolled into my Blue Sky credit line. That's when she told me about the Options card, so I chose to get that. It's pretty much worthless (although I did get 60 cents off my $3 snack purchase onboard recently), but I'll use it a couple times a year for small purchases so I won't have to worry about expiring miles. I don't think I'll miss the free checked bag perk too much - I've already found that airlines are offering to check your bag for free at the gate because of insufficient bin space.

I know, it's nothing, but I didn't know the discount applied to the free card, so it was an unexpected plus on a free card.
