The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card has many benefits that make it a long term credit card. Some of these benefits are:

Statement Credit From Gold Delta SkyMiles

Earn 35,000 Bonus Miles after you use your new Card to make $1,000 in purchases within the first 3 months. You will earn 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases, and 1 mile per dollar on everything else. You will get priority boarding on Delta flights. Your first checked bag is free. Annual fee is $95 which is waived for the first 12 months. And you will also receive a $50 statement credit on Delta purchases within the first 3 months of membership. Terms and Conditions apply.

 A great way to use this $50 statement if you don’t have travel plans on Delta within the first 3 months of opening your credit card, is to buy a Delta Gift Card.

 I tried this last week and within 24 hours I saw the credit on my statement online.



Bottom Line:

There is no way to guarantee that the statement credit will work toward gift cards, but there is no harm in trying. Delta gift cards are as good as cash that you can use on your next Delta purchase.
