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.
A benefit Delta and American Express added to the personal and business Delta Reserve cards is the ability for cardholders without Medallion status to receive unlimited complimentary upgrades.
Pretty great if have (or will soon apply for) a Reserve card but don’t hold any status — right?
Delta American Express cards offer cardholders decent-ish benefits. But points earnings and other areas leave something to be desired.
Where are some areas Delta and American Express can improve its premium Reserve cards?
Discovering a great mileage run deal from your home airport or city is always fantastic.
But what if you live somewhere like Omaha, Bismarck, or Casper — and most of the good runs begin in Chicago, New York, Vegas, or somewhere in California?
Take a positioning trip to wherever your mileage run starts!
While not ideal, it may be your only choice. (Don’t forget Adam at Juicy Miles can personalize an MQM or MQD run for you!)
“But that’s more time and money!” you may fear.
Money? Maybe not. Or at least, not as much as you think. Using some points and credit card benefits, it can be done.

The personal Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express is offering an increased MQM bonus for the next week. However, the offer is available only through referrals from current Reserve cardholders. Already hold the card? You can earn a SkyMiles bonus for referring someone!
