The Delta SkyMiles Reserve American Express Card has an annual fee of $550. The annual First Class round-trip companion certificate alone can easily offset this fee.
The card also grants several other highly valuable benefits such as Delta SkyClub access and one-time guest passes, Centurion Lounge access, complimentary upgrades and upgrade priority, a free checked bag for yourself and up to 8 other traveling with you, and much more.
All-in-all, the card offers significantly more than $550 in value for anyone who frequently travels with Delta.
