American Express Announces Carbon Neutral Delta Credit Cards and Launches New Offer

American Express has announced that select Delta credit cards will be made from 70% recovered plastic. Along with this announcement, the card issuer has introduced new limited-time offers on its consumer Delta credit cards, offering up to 100,000 bonus miles.

Key points to remember

  • American Express will begin issuing new Delta credit cards to consumers using a process that qualifies for a CarbonNeutral designation.
  • The new cards come with a limited-time offer on three of its Delta credit cards.
  • If you want to take advantage of the new welcome offer, be sure to apply before April 14, 2022.

New cards and welcome bonuses from Delta and American Express

American Express and Delta have partnered to start producing carbon-neutral credit cards. The new cards will be made from 70% recycled plastic through a process that uses 89% less greenhouse gas emissions and 85% less water than the traditional process of creating standard credit cards.

The new cards have been certified CarbonNeutral, a designation established by Natural Capital Partners.

The new card type is available on all of the bank’s Delta credit cards. It is not currently available for Delta business credit cards, but will be offered on the Delta SkyMiles American Express Business Gold credit card later this year.

To accompany this announcement, American Express also announced new limited-time offers on all three of its consumer credit cards:

Note that American Express has a unique rule for welcome offers. In other words, if you have already benefited from a welcome offer on one of these credit cards, you will not be able to win it again.

If you want to apply, these offers are valid until April 14, 2022. Be sure to compare several cards before deciding to find the best one for you.
