Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.
Reward nights start at 10,000 points. Free anniversary night (no points needed) good at any IHG hotel (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, more).
$1,000 toward travel or transfer to United, Southwest, and more.
If you don’t yet have a Delta SkyMiles Amex, June is a great month to get in on one, with big 50,000 and 60,000 mile introductory offers for the Gold and Platinum Delta SkyMiles credit cards.
But if you already have one, you’re still in for something.
Delta Amex Perks has three deals going on right now for all cardholders:
Throughout June, you can get up to 2 free premium drinks per day at all SkyClubs with a ‘THE BAR’ setup.
While all SkyClubs offer house liquor for no additional charge all year round, these premium wines and liquor normally cost $9, $12, even $15 or more a glass.
At some clubs, like SFO, some of the premium wines available are the kind that can go for $40 or $50 a bottle at retail, which works out to nearly $100 a bottle in restaurants, a great deal when you get 2 glasses free.
Just flash your SkyMiles Amex card to get in on it.
Some beverages are excluded from the deal, and while Delta hasn’t published a list, it’s probably only for the most expensive drinks like Blue Label scotch or high end champagne.
This one’s more limited.
On these days in New York:
You and a guest can get each get one hot item (burger, chicken sandwich, flat top dog), fries, and a cold item (including shakes, custard, and fountain drinks) for lunch just for showing your Delta SkyMiles Amex card.
If you’re in Atlanta, you can go to any King of Pops cart any Saturday or Sunday in June and enjoy a free pop for you and a guest when you show your card.
So if you’re a family, make sure you get authorized user cards to cover you all.
These aren’t huge perks. They’re not going to offset the annual fee (well, unless you are doing a lot of flying in June and want to load up on good liquor).
But they might take the sting out of the fact some people are going to be enjoying a higher intro bonus than what you might have received when you first got your card.
