Quick Thoughts

It is somewhat surprising to see the return of such big offers on these cards so soon after they were recently increased, but this could be great timing for those getting back into the swing of travel. The Gold card offers might be particularly appealing given no fee for the first year, making the bonuses easily worth north of a thousand dollars in travel, though it would be hard to argue with any of them.

Those chasing a reduced path to elite status with Delta this year could take advantage of the Delta Reserve card offer to get most of the way to Delta Silver from the welcome offer alone and a nice chunk of miles to go with it (and keep in mind that redeeming those miles will also help toward elite status this year).

Overall, it’s just great to see the hits keep coming. Hopefully the credit card wars continue to heat up if it means awesome new offers like these keep coming at us. Note that we did see targeted offers that may have been slightly better in some circumstances in recent memory, but these offers are at the very least almost as good as it gets.
