Delta’s three main credit cards are all offering some of the highest welcome bonuses we’ve ever seen.
If you apply before July 2 and meet the minimum spending requirements, you can get as many as 80,000 bonus miles — there are personal and small business versions of each card.
Each of the three cards offers useful benefits, but there are some major differences between them. Read on to see which is best for you.
Keep in mind that even if you’ve had one card before, you can still get the bonus on the other ones to pad your Delta SkyMiles frequent flyer account.

A common misconception is that it’s impossible to earn enough frequent-flyer miles for a free flight unless you fly all the time. Plenty of people figure that if they only fly once or twice a year, the miles they’ll earn are effectively useless.
Luckily for those of us who don’t travel for work every other day, there are a ton of opportunities to earn miles that don’t involve flying. One of the easiest: rewards credit cards.
In addition to the rewards you can get from actually spending on a card, you can typically earn a large welcome bonus when you open a new one.
The catch is that these bonus offers can change, and in many cases, you can only earn it once, so you’ll want to make sure to get the highest bonus you can.
For those looking to earn miles on Delta — or, if you’re just looking for benefits that can make flying a little bit easier — now is the time to open one of the airline’s co-branded cards, thanks to newly increased offers on the personal and small business cards.
Hurry, though — these offers are only available until July 2.
There are three main Delta credit cards, issued by American Express, and each one is available in a personal and a small business version.
If you’ve had any of them before, you can still earn the bonus on one of the others.
Aside from the initial bonus, each card offers a ton of ongoing value, whether you’re a casual, once-or-twice-a-year flyer, or a hard-core Delta loyalist.
Read on to learn more about the three cards, and see which one is best for you.
