Interested applicants can apply for a Gold Delta SkyMiles American Express Credit Card by visiting the American Express website. The company's online credit application gives applicants a decision in as little as 60 seconds, states American Express.
The Gold Delta SkyMiles American Express Credit Card has a variable annual percentage rate ranging from 15.24 to 19.24 percent as of 2015, based on the individual applicant’s credit worthiness, according to American Express. The card has no annual fee for the first year, but then comes with an annual fee of $95 a year. New cardholders also receive 30,000 bonus miles after their first $1,000 of purchases on the card as well as a $50 statement credit after making their first Delta Airlines purchase.
The Gold Delta American Express card is linked to Delta’s frequent flier program, Delta SkyMiles. As part of the program, cardholders receive certain travel benefits when they fly on Delta Airlines, according to American Express. Benefits include priority boarding, one free checked bag per passenger and a 20 percent discount on Delta inflight purchases. Gold Delta SkyMiles holders also can earn frequent flier miles for every dollar they spend on regular purchases and two miles per dollar on every Delta purchase.
