A couple of my family members are understandably concerned about traveling during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. They recently booked a trip using the companion certificate from my Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express — and are now considering postponing.
They were curious about what would happen to their reservation if they do, indeed, forgo their trip.
So I contacted Delta for some answers.
Don’t forget today is your last chance to use this month’s Amex statement credits if you hold the Platinum Card from American Express and/or the American Express Gold Card. (Darn short month February! And this is a longer-than-usual one, too!)
Either card (or both!) can save you some money if you’re going out or staying in.
Delta’s “refresh” of their co-branded American Express cards kicked in early today. One of the major changes involves Sky Club access.
Some Delta Amexes received guest passes. Several saw hikes in entrance fees for cardholders and guests. Two cards completely lost lounge access.
So which American Express cards provide entry (complimentary or otherwise) to Delta Sky Club airport lounges?
Let’s break it down.
LAST DAY – for OLD Delta Amex Card Spend Rules – You must buy stuff TODAY!
Two weeks remain in January. This is especially important for cardholders of the personal/consumer Platinum Card from American Express, the Business Platinum Card from American Express, and personal/consumer American Express Gold Card.
Why? Because this month is when existing cardholders may change their preferred airline for their card’s (or cards’) annual airline incidental credit. (New cardmembers applying later in the year can select their airline upon receiving their card.)
Which cards get how much credit each year? Does every airline participate? What charges are eligible? Let’s tackle those questions!
If you dumped your Chase Sapphire Reserve (or plan to) consider this: the rebooted American Express Green Card‘s (which matches the CSR’s bonus categories) limited time offer ends tomorrow night, January 15.
If there’s a Delta Amex you haven’t yet held, now is the time to apply and lock in savings of up to $100 — before six cards’ annual fees go up.
The annual fee is due for my Delta Reserve American Express card. But I truly couldn’t definitely decide whether or not to keep or cancel it. With upcoming, sweeping changes across the Delta American Express spectrum, I called Amex to see if they had any good retention offers.
Here’s what happened.

Today’s the last day to apply for the Delta American Express cards’ special, increased welcome bonuses — and lock in a full year of their current annual fees.
It seems like just yesterday the deals were announced and we said, “You have until October 30 to apply!” Well, the 30th is already here — and hours are ticking away until Amex pulls the offers.
On that note, Amex has been known to end promotions at random times. We’ve seen deals disappear late night, afternoon, and even late morning.
So now’s the time to apply.
Complimentary first class upgrades are a major reason people pursue airline elite status. Delta knows this — and gives members of its co-branded American Express cards improved chances of sitting up front.
As René wrote yesterday, 20×2020 is in full effect. So if first class upgrades are important to you, here’s how Delta Amexes play such a vital role scooting you up the upgrade list.
