When Delta Air Lines and American Express refreshed their co-branded credit cards last month, each product’s physical card received a makeover. Plus, the Platinum and Reserve cards were switched to metal cards from the traditional plastic.
I hold all four of the Platinum and Reserve products and took advantage of the free metal card replacement for each. (Here’s how you can order your complimentary metal card replacement from Amex.) All arrived within a few days of each other. Let’s take a look at the new metal Delta Amex cards!
New Metal Delta Amexes
The four Delta Amexes with metal makeovers are:
- Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express
- Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card from American Express
Their metal makes picture-taking a little interesting when it comes to lighting. But here are several images to give you an idea of what my new cards look like:
The cards are nice. Nothing amazing — but definitely attractive. I also appreciate that metal is much more durable than plastic (which we’ll see in just a couple of minutes).
Aesthetically, I prefer the metal Delta Platinum cards to their Reserve counterparts. Despite purple being one of my favorite colors, it just doesn’t work in this presentation on the Reserve cards.
Business Card Differences
The business cards have mini Delta logos brushed into the right side of the cards.
Metal vs Plastic Comparisons
Here are the newer, metal versions of each card alongside the old, plastic cards:
I really like the refreshed Platinum cards’ designs. And you can see my Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card from American Express and Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card from American Express got decent workouts over the years. I appreciate metal cards because they hold up better (at least, in my experience).
Again, I don’t love the Reserve cards’ new looks. It would have been cool to see the now-old Reserve card designs on metal cards. But I understand designs had to be updated across the board.
