New Elite Credit Card Application from American Express?
On the merger with Northwest airlines, Delta and American Express are planning o a new credit card offer that would cater for elite customer mostly. It is expected to be the most elite of all the wide spectrum of Delta cards issued by American Express and is sure to be one of the priciest card products on the market.
With the annual fee of $450, Delta Reserve credit card is simply obliged to satisfy a most sophisticated frequent flyer customer. And judging by its fabulous benefits, it really does. Let's give a brief outline of what the card has to offer.
The factor that puts the Delta Reserve credit card among the most expensive and searched for frequent flyer credit cards is its elite status 10,000 bonus miles granted to an applicant just for his/her elite status.
After being approved a customer gets access to additional bonus miles the amount of which will depend on the dollar amount spent with the card. Thus, on spending $30,000 in one year, you are eligible for 15,000 airline miles redeemable for a wide variety of Delta merchandize and services.
Delta Reserve credit card, just like other Delta airline affinity credit cards, justifies its rating as a card with unrestricted credit rewards and proves to be even more advanced, offering such a new benefit as the ability to use the Delta Crown Room airport lounges during the flight.
Despite of its rather hefty $ 400 Crown Room annual membership fee, customers are ready to fork out for the opportunity to relax in Continental and Northwest lounges as well for they both are included into the program.
The elite status of the Delta Reserve credit card is proved further on through a number of additional perks and programs, such as a free annual certificate for no blackout dates and no minimum fare requirements. As to credit insurance programs, this new elite Amex credit card sells you frequent traveler securities and assistance from American Express Concierge Services.
Are you still ready to lay out $450 annually? Well if your financial capabilities allow you to regularly charge $2,500 per month, which will amount to $30,000 per year and which will give you the promised bulk of elite miles, the new Delta product will find its place on top of your wallet.
There is one thing that a potential applicant should know before he/she request the credit card. It will be of most advantage to medium or frequent flyers whose flying experience is not so long yet as to have them already using any high-level elite privileges. In other wards, the card best works for those who can really benefit from the elite bonus miles and lounges facilities.
In this case only Delta Reserve credit card will justify its cost and preserve its name as the most elite of Delta co-branded cards.
