Title says it all.  AmEx debuted the Blue Delta SkyMiles credit card this week, offering two miles per dollar spent at U.S. restaurants and on Delta Air Lines Inc. purchases, and one mile per dollar spent everywhere else.  No annual fee and current sign-up bonus is 10,000 Skymiles after $500 in eligible purchases in the first 3 months.  If you don't mind the hit from the inquiry, it's an easy 10,000 SkyMiles.  Notice that the card doesn't offer free checked baggage like other airline cards though.

Much thanks - I just called in and had them change my Blue Delta to this "new" Blue Delta and had my fee returned.

This card sucks.
Delta sucks too.
If you apply for it,
I pity the fool!

I am sitting on about 60K Delta miles. If I want to go do Europe next Spring, as I'm considering, I can book a round trip direct flight to Amsterdam for 60K miles, with availability on numerous different days. (Plus $48.46 in fees.) Seems reasonable to me - not sure what's so awful about Delta's program. (I wish it allowed free changes and cancellations - but so be it.)

However, with the advent of Chase's 5/24 rule, I need to be picky with credit cards; two years ago, I probably would have gotten this card just for the 10K miles to pad the ones I have. But there are better cards. (Like the Alaska Airlines BofA card for example.) So I'll pass on this Delta Amex card - thanks!
