Stuck in Delta Gold.

Postby nickwnola » Sun Nov 30, 2014 11:20 am

I signed up for the delta gold a few months back. I had used delta premerger a few years back and liked the service. This last trip I took after getting the card was horrible, overcrowded, lousy service, hot inside the jet. Just horrible. I realized I made a mistake getting this card. Now I've tried twice to switch jt for another card BCE or EVERYDAY and have was told there was no way to change it except cancel it and start over. I'm so annoyed right now. Am I just screwed?

Let me see if I understand you correctly. You had ONE lousy flight with Delta and you're ready to give up a perfectly good credit card as a result? Lost to the logic there. But, if you want to give the card up, it looks to me like you'll just have to apply for a different Amex card and take your chances. There are plenty of people here and in the world that have more than one Amex card, so it isn't like that's stopping you. Go for it and good luck!

Just sock drawer the card and get another Amex. When your card is a year old, you can reallocate most of the CL (except 500 dollars) over to your other Amex card then and close the Delta card then. I wouldn't close it now at all though.
