Delta and American Express are spiffing up four of their co-branded credit cards: giving them metal makeovers.
Existing cardholders and new applicants can all get in on the fun.
As part of the big Delta Amex refresh yesterday, each of the seven cards received new designs. But four of them are now made of metal, instead of the traditional plastic:
The business flavors of the Reserve and Platinum are similarly designed — but with a couple of differences. In addition to the word “Business” emblazoned on the cards, their backgrounds feature a pattern of repeating Delta logos.
During the past several years, American Express switched from plastic to metal for three products: The Platinum Card from American Express, The Business Platinum Card from American Express, and the American Express Gold Card.
New applicants taking advantage of the big welcome offers announced earlier today should automatically receive the new, metal versions. (People who applied for the offers on January 29: please let us know which version — plastic or metal — you receive.)
Current cardholders can receive the metal versions one of two ways:
- Wait for until your current card expires
- Request one through your American Express account
