About American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card

Card Highlights

American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles is a Credit Card

With a credit card, you can carry a balance and accrue interest if necessary. Note this is not advised by me. The points game does not work well, if you are carrying a balance and accruing interest. See #4 in Let’s Get Started To Earning Free Travel.
