Delta and American Express offer some of the more exciting rewards cards that are regularly ranked by Slickdeals among the best travel credit cards for airline rewards. Now the partners have relaunched their popular suite of Delta SkyMiles credit cards.

The names have changed slightly, but so have rewards rates, annual fees and benefits of the Delta cards. Say goodbye to foreign transaction fees and hello to priority boarding and free checked bags.

While a lot of the recent news of credit card changes has been disappointing—we’re looking at you Barclays—most of Delta’s card changes are for the better.

Current and future cardholders can expect higher annual fees, but better benefits that they will actually use. To balance the changes to Delta cards, the issuer is offering bigger sign-up bonuses for a limited time.

Delta is overhauling four consumer cards, so let’s get to a quick breakdown of what’s changing for 2020.
