Is Now the Best Time to Get a Delta SkyMiles Card?

Delta recently leveraged the SkyMiles program to secure a multi-billion dollar loan before going back to the well. We think your SkyMiles are relatively safe in terms of existence. Our only concern is the points may devalue.

If there’s an aspirational trip for which you want to stock up on SkyMiles, these offers are a decent opportunity to pad your Delta points balance. (In that case, I think the Delta SkyMiles Gold Business American Express Card is the best value, given the annual fee is free the first year and the Platinum offers aren’t substantially bigger.)

With that in mind, here are more detailed looked at all four cards.
