Quick Summary:
This is a airline rewards card issued by American Express. This card is intended for consumers, or "personal use" with a nearly perfect credit history. Rates may vary among applicants, however the lowest standard APR is 15.74%* and may be as high as 24.74%* (Variable)*, depending on your credit worthiness*.

Important Rates:
There is not an introductory APR for this card, so the lowest or standard rate may apply immediately or after the grace period for eligible purchases. There is an annual fee of $550* for this card.

Rewards:
This card can be used for airline rewards, where you can expect a "points" system or rebates for certain purchases.

Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, applicants should have a great or nearly perfect credit record. A FICO credit score of 799 is recommended for a higher chance of approval, but this is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval. While your FICO score is usually a very important factor, you may want to consider other areas that may affect a decision for approval. For example, your debt to income ratio, recent credit inquiries, 30+ day delinquencies, or current credit accounts nearing the maximum amount may affect a credit decision.

FICO scores/credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, a credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any American Express product.

Other Basics:
The grace period listed for the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card is at least 20 days*. So interest charges will not be applied for new purchases during this time if balance is paid in full by the due date. Be aware that some issuers will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

American Express acceptance among businesses is moderate, but global. You should not have a difficult time finding businesses that will accept this card as a form of payment.
