First Bag is Free With the Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express

Just in time for the peak summer travel season, American Express (NYSE: AXP) and Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced the launch of a new benefit for U.S. Consumer and Small Business Gold, Platinum and Reserve Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers. Starting June 1, 2010, Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers will receive a free first checked bag on every Delta flight -- up to a $50 savings per person on a round-trip ticket -- available for up to nine people in the same reservation.

**We are delighted to offer this new benefit to our Delta SkyMiles Cardmembers,** said Tracey Beberman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Co-Brand Partnerships, American Express. **Cardmembers have told us that they value being recognized when they travel with Delta. We believe that this new first checked bag free benefit does just that and more. It provides tangible savings for Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers when they fly.**

**Baggage fee waivers are one of the benefits we provide to reward some of our most engaged customers.,** said Jeff Robertson, Vice President - SkyMiles. **The long-standing relationship with American Express has given us the ability to now extend this valuable benefit to Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardmembers and their traveling companions.**

The new Card benefit applies to up to nine people traveling in the same reservation including the Cardmember. As a result, a family of four could save up to $200 when flying round-trip. Cardmembers receive a first checked bag fee waiver upon check-in.

First and Business Class passengers, SkyMiles Medallion members, and passengers with a confirmed Full Y Class Economy ticket may continue to check up to two bags at no charge.

More information about this new benefit is available at delta.com/firstbagfree. Customers interested in applying for or learning more about Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards from American Express may visit delta.com/creditcards.
