Annual Fees

The Delta SkyMiles Platinum American Express Card has an annual fee of $250.

While that is a hefty price tag, the card offers a large number of benefits that makes offsetting the annual fee pretty easy assuming you fly Delta a few times per year.

The most notable benefit is the annual Main Cabin Companion Pass which can make up for the fee on it's own as it's not uncommon for Delta flights to cost more than $250 round-trip.

In addition to that, the card also offers a free checked bag for yourself and up to 8 others traveling with you which will save you $30 per person, per direction if you normally have to pay for bags.
