Worth the fee? Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card Benefits & Review

Pros

 

  • Earns Medallion Qualification Miles. If you’re trying to reach Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Diamond Medallion, this card lets you earn miles toward the status without flying. Limited Time Offer: Earn 70,000 bonus miles and 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) after you spend $3,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months.
  • Includes a Companion Certificate. You can fly a companion for free (plus taxes and fees) on domestic Delta flights each year you renew the card. It’s an electronic certificate you can redeem on Delta.com and works on flights that have some of the lower fares.
Cons
  • A big annual fee. The right to earn Medallion Qualification Miles without flying doesn’t come cheap – the annual fee here is $195.
  • Limited category bonuses. You just earn a straight 1 mile per dollar on most spending, and 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases. There are several other cards from American Express that can earn you SkyMiles faster. Check here to compare.

    Can I use my Delta platinum card to book delta flights from a third party website and will I still receive those miles?
