Amex and Delta introduce new ecofriendly cards and welcome offers
Sustainability and climate change are on the forefront of many people’s minds and sustainable travel has become important to many. In a Booking.com report from last year, it’s reported that 83% of global travelers think sustainable travel is vital, with 61% saying the pandemic has made them want to travel more sustainably in the future.
While airlines are still one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, they are taking steps to become more environmentally friendly. Starting today, the physical Delta SkyMiles American Express Cards listed below are now certified CarbonNeutral®. They will be made from 70% reclaimed plastic, resulting in 89% less greenhouse gas emissions and 85% less water consumption compared to how traditional plastic credit cards are made.
To celebrate these new cards, there is also raised welcome offers to get your card membership off to an exciting start. Here are the cards and their new offers: Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card.
With the Delta SkyMiles Gold American Express Card you can earn 70,000 Delta SkyMiles after you spend $2,000 in purchases on the card within the first three months. If you value SkyMiles at a conservative 1 cent per mile, this bonus is worth $700, although its not much hard to get more value than that.
The Delta SkyMiles Gold card is great for flyers who travel a few times each year with Delta and its partners. You will also receive your first checked bag free, a $100 Delta flight credit when you spend $10,000 or more in a calendar year, *rental car insurance and no foreign transaction fees.
