    I have the Delta American Express Gold card and I am thinking about upgrading to the American Express Platinum Card.I talked to a Rep and she said that in October that I would be able to upgrade to the Delta Platinum card. I am been researching the benefits to this card and what makes me interested in getting this card is that I want to earn Silver Status and I would be earning points. With the Gold I don't earn them. So does anyone know the pros and cons to having this card?

    Pro: (and probably the biggest one for me) 10k MQMs @ $25k spend annually.

    It is slightly more expensive annually, but if you can manage the spend for the MQMs then it isn't much. I am assuming you want to upgrade versus having both cards due to the annual fees? Unsure if when you upgrade you forfeit sign on bonus.

    You also get a free companion air ticket each year with the Platinum.

    Is this true? I don't recall getting one in the mail or email. My DL account shows no credits or certificates.

    You get it upon RENEWAL, so not in the first year.

    I just got mine in my email. And bigx0 is correct, it's on renewal.
