Part of playing the travel hacking “game” is doing occasional credit card maintenance. I got the Gold Amex Delta Skymiles card about a year ago, and while the annual fee was waived the first year, $95 was coming due soon. Time to see what kind of Delta Skymiles retention offer I could get! I actually screwed up when I got this card and got a way worse offer than I should have, but that, my friends, is another story entirely!!
It had actually already posted on my account a few days ago, but with American Express, you have 60 days after the annual fee to cancel the card without having to pay the fee. So I logged on to AmericanExpress.com, used my handy trick to always get a live chat (did you know that this is STILL my most popular post I’ve ever written?)
We started with the pleasantries
One reason to keep the card for a few weeks?
One reason to keep it for a little bit longer is that because it’s an American Express card, it’s eligible for Small Business Saturday, which would give me an additional $30 statement credit. I’ll have to think if that’s worth it or not…
Anyone ever gotten a good Amex Delta Skymiles card retention offer?
