Delta Adds New Benefits to Delta SkyMiles Credit Card

August 3, 2011, Written By Lynn Oldshue

Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express adds new benefits on September 1. The benefits will apply to Gold, Platinum and Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers and up to eight companions traveling on the same reservation

New benefits include early boarding that allows cardmembers and companions to use Zone2 priority boarding. It will also give a 20% discount on food beverages and entertainment on Delta-operated flights when they use a Delta SkyMiles credit card. The 20% discount will appear on the cardmember’s account statement. Cardmembers and their travel companions who are traveling in the same reservation already receive a first checked bag free on all Delta and Delta Connection flights (maximum nine waivers per reservation).

To receive these benefits, you must use your SkyMiles number to book your flight and when you are checking in.
