While logging on to my American Express account this morning, I was prompted with a new offer on both my Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express and my Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express (yes, I have both.) This new benefit allows you to “borrow miles today and earn them later when you spend on your Card/s. Pretty interesting!
Borrow Miles With Delta Card’s Newest Benefit
The benefit of this could be helpful to many. In booking and planning points vacations, especially when you are planning them for a family of four it is sometimes hard to have enough miles to book all your airfare when you want to. Especially if you travel often on points and if you make expensive redemptions in First class, etc.
Let’s take a look at this new benefit of the Delta SkyMiles cards from American Express.
