Quick Summary

This is perhaps the most popular card among loyal Delta customers thanks to the free checked bag benefit and reasonable annual fee. Overall a very typical airline co-brand credit card.

Our Take

This is one of the most popular airline credit cards on the market.

It’s very difficult to tell you the value of this card bonus due to the unpredictability of Delta’s award redemptions. Delta does not have an award chart so they can basically charge whatever they like for a flight.

Sometimes you will find 80,000 miles round trip to Europe in business class. Other times you will see 80,000 miles for a one-way flight to Chicago. You just never know.

But overall a decent card for just about anyone.
