Delta Air Lines


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!

Delta recently redesigned its Certificates, eCredits, or Delta Gift Cards page. This is where your Delta Amex companion certificates, regional upgrade certificates, global upgrade certificates, and flight vouchers are available. It’s also where you can check a Delta gift card’s balance.

While the makeover certainly is an aesthetic upgrade, some users are having problems getting it to work correctly.
