Who is this card good for?
This card was made especially for frequent Delta flyers. Access to Delta Sky Club lounges when flying the airline is a huge plus, as is the ability to earn MQMs through spending. Throw in its annual companion certificate, which is good for one domestic round-trip domestic itinerary in Main Cabin, Comfort+, or first class, and you’re looking at potentially thousands of dollars in value each year.
