Personally, I have the Delta Reserve Business card and it’s a keeper for me. Besides the SkyClub and Centurion Lounge access when flying Delta (which is redundant if you have the Amex Platinum anyway), it also provides a couple of great Delta-related benefits.
If you can spend $30,000 in a year (and you have to spend at least $25,000 unless you’re spending enough on Delta or partner flights to earn status), you get 15,000 MQMs added to your balance, which can help in the annual status requalification process. I’m Platinum and will remain so for at least two more years thanks to all the covid-era rollovers of MQMs.
Another great benefit is the annual companion ticket. Unlike the one on the Delta Platinum credit card, this one has fewer restrictions and can even be used for most first class fares. I can easily get $4-500 worth of value out of this benefit alone, which basically pays the annual fee on the card every year.
It’s also easier than you think to sign up for a business card even if you don’t have an official small business. As long as you sell some things on eBay or Facebook Marketplace or something similar, you can almost definitely qualify, especially with Amex, who tend to be a bit easier than Chase when approving these cards. The other thing to note is that this will not affect your Chase 5/24 status if you are trying to qualify to apply for Chase cards sometime soon.
The offer ending today is for 110,000 SkyMiles as a sign-up bonus. This is worth at least $1300 toward Delta flights even before you consider all the other card benefits. If you are interested, consider signing up here: Delta Business Reserve Card
