Good-ish news for cardholders of any consumer/personal Delta American Express card!

Amex announced today those cards will receive four (4X) SkyMiles per dollar spent at US supermarkets!

Here’s the rub: the offer is good only through July 2020.

But it’s certainly better than the 2X miles the Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express and Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express Card usually earn.

And a heckuva lot better than the standard 1X on the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express and Delta SkyMiles Blue American Express Card

Despite the limited time period, cardmembers can get some extra miles stocking up for home essentials, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day meals, Memorial Day gatherings, and Fourth of July cookouts.

How about that? I’m excited to use my Delta Reserve card at the grocery store! 🙂

  1. Is there a limit to how much you can spend? I’m assuming gift cards purchased at grocery stores would trigger this 4%, so that could make this a really sweet deal.

  2. It’s nice to see the Reserve Card finally get some SkyMiles earning love since last years “enhancement.” I only spend $30K on the card and put it away afterwords due to the poor earnings. I really miss the 15K SkyMiles bonus that came when you hit the spending threshold. I’m not sure why DL had to take that away since they kept the card at 1x on almost all purchases?

    • @Bryce: I assume Amex and Delta got rid of the 15k SkyMiles bonus so as to discourage, erm, creative shopping.
