American Express just launched a new credit card; Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card. It’s always exciting when card issuers launch a new credit card. It presents new opportunities of earning miles and points. Even though this card is not a breakthrough, it’s still a nice option especially for beginners. Or those who are well over the 5/24 threshold for Chase cards.
