We may also consider your creditworthiness in determining whether or not to apply the penalty APR to your Account.

If the Penalty APR is applied, it will apply for at least 6 months. We review your Account every 6 months after the Penalty APR is applied. The Penalty APR will continue to apply until after you have made timely payments, with no returned payments during the 6 months being reviewed.

Paying Interest
Your due date is at least 25 days after the close of each billing period. We will not charge you interest on purchases if you pay each month your entire balance (or if you have a plan outstanding, your balance adjusted for plans) by the due date. We will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

Miles on Eligible Purchases

1x Mile on eligible purchases: You will earn 1 mile for each dollar of eligible purchases charged on your Card.

2x Miles at Restaurants: You will earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) for each dollar of eligible purchases charged at restaurants worldwide. You may not get additional miles for purchases at a restaurant located within another establishment (e.g. a restaurant located inside a hotel, casino, or event venue).  For example, purchases made at a restaurant located within a hotel may be recognized as a purchase at a hotel, not a restaurant.  You will not earn additional miles for purchases at bars, nightclubs, cafeterias, and convenience stores. 

2x Miles on Delta Purchases: You will earn 1 additional mile (for a total of 2 miles) on each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with Delta (“Delta Purchases”). Delta Purchases are eligible purchases where Delta is the merchant of record, such as purchases via, the Fly Delta app, phone reservations, or ticket counters, such as upgrades, miles, seat selection, Delta Sky Club® membership, and in-flight purchases of food, alcoholic beverages and audio headsets on Delta-operated flights. Delta Purchases do not include other in-flight purchases where Delta is not the merchant of record, such as in-flight wireless internet access and charitable contributions. Delta Gift Cards do not qualify.  Delta Purchases include Delta Vacations® packages but not other all-inclusive packages. Delta Purchases include purchases of qualifying Delta, Delta Connection® carrier and Delta Shuttle® flights taken with the purchase of a fare that is eligible for SkyMiles mileage credit. Additional miles earned for Delta flight purchases made with the Card will be based on the total ticket price, including base fare, carrier-imposed surcharges and government-imposed taxes and fees. 

Eligible purchases mean purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person transactions, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Miles will be posted to your Delta SkyMiles account 8 to 12 weeks after the end of each month.  To be eligible to receive miles, your Card account must not be canceled or past due at the time of fulfillment.  

Purchases made through a third party payment account or on an online marketplace (with multiple retailers) will not qualify for additional miles.

Merchants are assigned codes base on what they primarily sell. A purchase will not qualify for additional miles if the merchant’s code is not eligible. A purchase may not qualify for additional miles if the merchant submits the purchase using a mobile or wireless card reader or if you use a mobile or digital wallet. Additional terms and restrictions may apply.
