[DISCONTINUED] Capital One Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards

Two more credit cards are being taken off the shelf. It is one again Capital One’s turn. They have discontinued the Delta SkyMiles Gold MasterCard and the Delta SkyMiles World MasterCard.

The highlights of each credit card were as follows:

Delta SkyMiles Gold MasterCard

  • No annual fee
  • No fee for supplementary cardholders
  • Earn 2,500 sign up bonus points after your first purchase
  • Earn 2 points for every $1 on Delta purchases
  • Earn 1 points for every $1 on all other purchases

Delta SkyMiles World MasterCard

  • $120 annual fee
  • No fee for supplementary cardholders
  • Earn 25,000 SkyMiles after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days of having this credit card
  • Earn 10,000 annual bonus miles when you spend at least $25,000 in one year (the year is counted on the anniversary of having this credit card)
  • Earn 3 SkyMiles for every $1 on Delta purchases
  • Earn 2 SkyMiles for every $1 on all other purchases

As bad is the SkyMiles program is, these two credit cards provided some competition to the co-branded airline credit cards available in Canada. With these two discontinuations, that leaves Alaska Airlines as the only United States airline still partnering up with any Canadian credit card company.

This is either bad news for consumers, as the competition continues to diminish, or it opens up the door to another airline. Either way, there have been so many changes to the Canadian credit card world in 2015 and we’re not even half way through the year.
