Based on comments I’ve read on the blog and Twitter, some people will cancel at least one Delta Amex because of the cards’ higher new annual fees and benefit structures. (Remember, you can still enjoy a year of the current, lower annual fees if you sign up before January 30, 2020. And there are some very nice welcome bonuses available — especially for the personal cards — through October 30.)

Before canceling a card, though, there may be an option to consider: a retention offer commonly referred to as a “spending challenge.”

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Delta and American Express are refreshing their co-branded credit cards, new limited-time offers have just been released for personal and business versions of the Gold, Platinum, and Reserve cards.

And there are plenty of SkyMiles to be enjoyed (at least, for the personal cards). The business cards, though, have easily achievable minimum spend requirements.
