backpack winner delta points blog swag saturday

First let me say congratulations to our Random.org winner #216 that is Marvin. I will contact you soon and get your Swiss Gear backpack and other goodies on the way soon. Now on to the shocking results:

make sure your delta AMEX card does show up at your my delta home page delta points blog

A full 63% of readers responded they did not know that just holding the Delta AMEX Gold (or Platinum or Reserve card for that matter – personal or business) results in a free bag for you and up to 8 more on the same reservation. In other words, you can pay for the ticket with another card like the Barclay’s’ Arrival+ card should you want to and STILL get the free bag perk. Now what you DO want to make sure of is that your Delta AMEX card does show up on your “My Delta” page as you can see above from my page.

Additionally, as many did point out in the comments, paying with the Delta AMEX card does give you 2x points. However, as I have talked about before, a better choice would the NON-Delta AMEX Premier Rewards Gold card that will give you 3x points for airline tickets you buy direct on Delta.com and you can send over those points 1 for 1 to Delta Skymiles should you choose to.

The bottom line is each Delta AMEX card gives you different perks. Most of them you get just by holding the card. Others you do need to use the card to get the benefit (like the extended warranty plan for making purchase with the card). Do take the time to look at ALL the perks before you choose a card so you are getting the best one for YOU! René

PS – Be sure to check back tomorrow as a $60 Amazon gift card is up for grabs!

    Good question is do additional card holders get the perks of they add their card to their skymiles account or is that a primery cardholder benefit only?

    • @Young – hate to say the T&C says: “First Checked Bag Free: Benefit is limited to Basic Card Members (not Additional Card Members)”

    Pretty sure that was the case otherwise I would have slapped myself for not adding it sooner.

    • @Young – the funny thing is the NON-DL Plat offers a TON of perks. I do have a post on the way soon about that and more! 😉
