Maximize your purchase

Although you could use a credit card that earns additional points or miles on airfare purchases, you’ll likely want to instead use a card that provides solid travel protections. This is because the value of the travel protections provided by select cards such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve and the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card — and select Amex cards starting at the beginning of 2020 — can be worth much more than the points or miles you’d earn on the taxes and fees charged on these award tickets.

And, even if you only fly Delta a few times each year, you may want to consider adding a co-branded card to your wallet to get benefits such as your first checked bag free and priority boarding on Delta flights:
