The Best Cards to Earn Nearly Free Delta Flights

We love flying Delta Airlines, it isn’t a secret. So here are the best cards that you want to consider if you love flying Delta too!

$11.20 Delta Flights to Hawaii!

We just booked our round-trip Delta Comfort+ flights from SLC to Kona, Hawaii for only 38k points and $11.20 in taxes and fees! The original cost, if we were paying cash for these flights, would have been $2,314.00.

The savings on these cards can be awesome if Delta is your preferred airline.

So excited to go on a romantic trip with Jason in a few months and almost as excited that we got our flights for only $11.20!!!

If Delta is NOT your preferred airline, I would suggest the Chase Sapphire Preferred® as it has a lower annual fee than most of these cards on this list and also has some amazing transfer partners.

American Express® Gold Card

My most favorite card – EVER!!!

Don’t let the name confuse you, this is NOT a Delta credit card but an American Express Membership Rewards card that you can earn Amex points and then transfer to your Delta account to book!

American Express Gold
The Amex Gold is one of my absolute favorites! You can apply for this card here – American Express® Gold Card

The Platinum Card® from American Express

I really love this card but it is NOT for everyone! It is expensive, flashy, and comes with a lot of perks but you want to make sure that you use them. If Delta Skyclub lounge access is what you are looking for, then this is one of your best bets!
