Overview

The business version of the popular Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express Card is worth considering in its own right, especially if you travel for work. The Delta SkyMiles Gold Business Amex offers earning rates targeted at business owners (including freelancers and independent contractors), and accrues 2x miles on Delta purchases, U.S. advertising in select media, U.S. shipping and at restaurants. It earns 1x on other eligible purchases. The low annual fee is more than reasonable as cardholders can expect a free checked bag on Delta flights, which more than offsets the cost after just four flights each year. Throw in a 20% discount on inflight food, beverage and headset purchases plus priority boarding, and this card covers all the bases.

Pros

  • Earns 2x on popular business categories and dining
  • Main Cabin 1 priority boarding
  • First checked bag free
  • 20% discount on in-flight on select purchases(in the form of statement credits)

Cons

  • Comes with no Delta SkyClub lounge access
  • Has an annual fee

Who is this card good for?

This card is best for business owners who fly Delta occasionally but not enough to achieve Medallion elite status. You’ll still enjoy comparable perks such as a first free checked bag on every flight, priority boarding, and a 20% discount on in-flight purchases — all without having to fly tens of thousands of miles each year chasing elite status.

Earning Rewards

Earn 2x on Delta purchases, on U.S. advertising in select media, on U.S. shipping and at restaurants and 1x on other eligible purchases.
