Our Take

American Express recently refreshed all of their Delta card products, including the Delta SkyMiles Platinum Card. This is the more expensive version of this popular co-brand card that comes with a handful of perks to justify the higher annual fee.

The current welcome bonus is on par with most others we have seen on Delta cards in the past.
