If Delta is your airline of choice and you want access to its Sky Club airport lounges, having a Delta credit card can get you in for free.
The Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card and the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Business American Express Card offer discounted one-time access to Delta Sky Club lounges, while the premium Delta cards offer complimentary access whenever you fly Delta.
Until April 1, when you open the Delta SkyMiles Platinum card or the Delta SkyMiles Business Platinum card, you can earn 80,000 miles after spending $3,000 in the first three months, and you’ll get another 20,000 miles after your first anniversary of cardmembership.
The premium cards, the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card, are offering 80,000 bonus miles and 20,000 Medallion Qualification Miles after you spend $5,000 in the first three months, and another 20,000 bonus miles after your first cardmember anniversary.

Like the other major US airlines, Delta has its own network of airport lounges, called Delta Sky Clubs. These provide a place to relax before a flight, and Sky Club amenities include Wi-Fi, snacks, and drinks.
One of the benefits of Delta’s two Platinum Credit cards — the Delta SkyMiles Platinum card and the Delta SkyMiles Platinum Business card — is the ability to purchase discounted access to Delta’s Sky Club airport lounges. And two other credit cards can get you free Delta Sky Club access when you fly Delta.
Keep in mind that we’re focusing on the rewards and perks that make these credit cards great options, not things like interest rates and late fees, which will far outweigh the value of any points or miles. It’s important to practice financial discipline when using credit cards by paying your balances in full each month, making payments on time, and only spending what you can afford to pay back.
