The ideal cardholder of the Delta Platinum Business card flies frequently with Delta, will spend enough to meet the welcome offer, and can take advantage of the card’s extensive benefits, including free checked bags and an annual companion certificate.
Bonus and Earnings Potential
The welcome bonus on the card is typically great. See the card snapshot above for current details, and make sure to spend the required amount in the set amount of time to earn it!
You will earn 3 SkyMiles per $1 for purchases made directly with Delta and 3 SkyMiles on every eligible dollar spent on purchases made directly with hotels; 1.5 SkyMiles per $1 on purchases larger than $5,000 (up to 50,000 additional SkyMiles per year), and 1 mile per $1 for everything else.
It’s also nice to know that Delta SkyMiles don’t expire, so you don’t have to keep up with expiration dates.
Earning Medallion Qualification Miles
In addition to earning Delta SkyMiles with the card, you can earn status miles that Delta calls Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs).
With Status Boost, you have the opportunity to earn 10,000 MQMs after you spend $25,000 in purchases on your card in a calendar year, up to 2x per year, getting you closer to Medallion Status.
Platinum Travel Benefits on Delta
As a Delta Platinum Business cardholder, you can take advantage of several great perks.
For example, you can check your first bag free. Then, stay ahead of the crowd by boarding the plane early with complimentary Main Cabin 1 priority boarding.
Free Domestic Companion Certificate
One of the most valuable benefits of the Delta Platinum Business card is the Companion Certificate.
Receive a Main Cabin round-trip certificate for domestic travel when you renew your card each year. It’s good for any domestic flight for which you hold a reservation.
You will be responsible for up to $75 in government taxes and fees for round-trip domestic flights.
Card Perks for Small Business Owners
Earn as many SkyMiles as possible by getting cards for your employees. Not only are employee cards without an additional fee, but you can also rack up the SkyMiles based on purchases your employees make with them.
Ease some of the financial pressure of being a small business owner by having the flexibility of paying for your purchases over time. You will still accrue interest, but the option to not pay in full at the end of the month may sometimes be worth it.
Plus, each Delta business credit card comes with all the benefits designed to simplify your finances.
Access your online statements and other account information with mobile and tablet apps. The apps are a convenient way to keep up with your credit card purchases when you’re on the go.
Set up spending and fraud alerts to get notified when your bill due date is approaching so you don’t incur late fees. Finally, add tags and notes to purchases with ReceiptMatch.
Additional Perks of the Delta Platinum Business Card
Other perks of using the card are shopping and travel-related benefits.
For example, purchase protection protects items you buy from accidental damage and theft for up to 90 days. You also have the option of extending your manufacturer’s warranty up to a year with an extended warranty. Cell phone protection covers your phone in case of theft or damage, like a cracked screen.
You have enough on your plate while traveling. Why not let American Express take over by providing car rental loss/damage insurance, roadside assistance, baggage insurance, and travel accident insurance?
There’s also a Global Assist hotline you can call if you need help when traveling, whether you’ve lost a passport or need medical help.
